Gil Vicente vs Benfica for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Monday at Cidade de Barcelos Stadium.
In the only game this Monday in Portugal closing the 22nd round of the Liga NOS, the home team of Gil Vicente and the visiting team of Benfica will meet in the city of Barcelos, at Estádio Cidade de Barcelos.
In the game of the 1st round, at Estádio da Luz, the local team won 2-0.
The home team enters this game, pursuing what is a season of excellence, not looking like the team it was in the 3rd division just a few months ago.
In addition to having a totally different squad and a new coach.
Currently, it occupies the 10th place with 26 points.
The visiting team, on the other hand, enters this game in the worst phase of results. Not only of this season but in this era of coach Bruno Lage.
In the championship, it was defeated in the last 2 matches, having seen FC Porto approach the leadership, is now only 1 point behind the eagles.
The team continues in 1st position, isolated, with 54 points added.
Gil Vicente has caused great difficulties to the great ones in this sporting season.
It already managed to beat FC Porto and Sporting, in a very clear and convincing way, something that highlights the exceptional competence of the Gilistas.
Especially when playing in front of the supporters (where it scored 17 of the 26 points it has).
We must consider this winning mentality to a way of playing tendentially offensively.
When taking into account that it will play against Benfica still in the wake of a European match (and defeat), I believe we will have here an exciting game with both sides managing to score at least one goal.
