Our prediction for this Taca de Portugal match:
A place in the Taca de Portugal quarter-finals will be at stake when Gil Vicente and Academico Viseu go head to head at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on Thursday evening. Gil Vicente failed to impress in the Primeira Liga loss to Farense, but they are surely capable of beating the Liga Portugal 2 side at home ground.
Ricardo Soares’ troops failed to find the net in the previous two home games in the Portuguese top flight, but we do not believe that Academico Viseu defenders are capable of preventing Gil Vicente attackers from scoring in the Taca de Portugal clash. Since Diogo should be the only absentee in the home team, we predict that the Liga Portugal 2 team will return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in a competitive match Academico Viseu defeated Gil Vicente 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
