Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Gil Vicente and Rio Ave square off against each other at Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on day 8 of the new Primeira Liga campaign. Gil Vicente do not seem to be at the top of their game at the moment, with the team suffering a loss in each of their previous four league fixtures. Os Galos have been struggling to find their form in the first half of the season, and their display in the Taca de Portugal win over Oleiros was anything but good.
Rio Ave, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures in the Portuguese top flight, and they aim to regain their spot in top five. Mario Silva’s troops have been impressive at the back in the first half of the season, with the team conceding only five goals in the process. Rio Ave failed to turn their dominance into goals in a draw with Belenenses, but they are definitely capable of breaking the deadlock in Sunday’s clash against Gil Vicente.
