Gil Vicente vs FC Porto for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Saturday at Cidade de Barcelos Stadium.
Next Saturday, 10th August 2019, Gil Vicente and FC Porto face each other for a match for the 1st round of the Primeira Liga (Portugal). The game has kick-off at 19:00 at the City of Barcelos Stadium (Barcelos).
Sergio Conceição’s boys will be back after losing to Sporting FC in the Portuguese Cup on penalties. And if they haven’t won anything in the previous season, they want to start off on the right foot.
FC Porto has lost just one game in their last ten visits, giving them the confidence to overtake the home team until the end of the final minute of the game. The guests also score several goals against the hosts.
Just promoted officially because of legal issues. Having no proper tactic to use home advantage or quality in the squad to counteract visitors. Surely the stadium will be full, and it will be a day of great joy for fans, it is the return to the first league!
Clashes between the two teams
The hosts have not beaten visitors in the last five matches.
FC Porto has two games without conceding goals in this period.
The hosts have suffered in all of the last ten clashes.
Visitors won three times in the first half of the last five games.
The hosts clearly lack tactics and arguments against visitors in their recent battles on the field. On the other hand, the opponents will implement a strategy that gives them superiority and helps them to solve the game quickly as they can in the second half rest some players for the match against Krasnodar.
We can expect FC Porto to dominate from the start of the game and probably lead the scorer in the first half.
My bet is Porto to win at halftime.
