Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Sporting CP will be looking to kick off the new Primeira Liga campaign in style when they host Gil Vicente at their Estadio Jose Alvalade on Saturday. The Lions added several high-profile footballers to the squad in the last two transfer windows, but Marcos Acuna and Matheus Pereira are no longer part of the team. Anyhow, Sporting are eager to put an end to Benfica-Porto’s dominance in the national championship, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Gil Vicente.
The Galos, on the other hand, did well to secure a top-ten finish last term. Gil Vicente are eyeing yet another mid-table finish, but they will have a big fish to fry in the opening match of the season. You should bear in mind that in their last meeting in Lisbon Sporting recorded a 2-1 win over Gil Vicente.
