Famalicao 9/5 to beat Gil Vicente in Tuesday’s Primeira Liga showdown
Competition: Primeira Liga
Market: Famalicao win
Odds: 9/5 @ Bet 365
Hoping to continue on their charge for European football, Famalicao will make the trip to an inconsistent Gil Vicente on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing to show some glaring inconsistencies either side of the enforced break, Gil Vicente now find themselves in a real battle to secure a top half finish. In their 25 Primeira Liga matches this season, they have recorded just seven wins, nine draws, and nine defeats, scoring 25 and conceding 30 in return. With a points tally of 30, Gil Vicente open the midweek fixtures in 10th, however, they hold just a single point buffer from losing their top half status. As for their recent run of results, Gil Vicente marked their top-flight return with a defeat and have won just one of their previous four Primeira Liga appearances. More worrying, Tuesday’s hosts have failed to win any of their previous three matchups on home soil and have recorded just a sole victory in their last six home fixtures across all competitions.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been an eye-catching run of form either side of the break, Famalicao have their sights set on securing a European finish this season. In their 25 Primeira Liga matches this year, they have recorded 11 wins, seven draws, and seven defeats, scoring 40 and conceding 41 in return. With a points tally of 40, they open the midweek fixtures sat just three points adrift of the top-four and holding a 10-point buffer over their hosts in midweek. As for their recent run of results, unbeaten in their last three top-flight matchups with two wins and a draw, Tuesday’s guests have also lost just a single contest in their last six matches across all competitions. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides either side of the break, we’re backing an away victory in midweek.
