Benfica vs Gil Vicente Match Preview



BENFICA thrashed Braga 4-0 in their last Primeira Liga game before the international break, while Gil Vicente were held to a goalless draw by Vitoria Setubal and drew last weekends’ friendly against Leixoes 1-1.

All of the stats point towards a big win for Benfica on Saturday despite the fact that Gil Vicente have looked strong in defence other than their 3-0 defeat at Moreirense.

Benfica are unbeaten in their last twelve matches against Gil Vicente spanning all the way back to 2006 and Saturday’s hosts have won five of the pairs’ last six encounters. Two of the duos’ last five meetings have produced over 3.5 goals and on each of those occasions, Benfica claimed 5-0 wins.

The form and performances of both clubs over the last month or so also suggest that a home win and over 3.5 match goals on the cards this weekend, as Benfica have won five of their last six matches and Gil Vicente are without a win in their last four games. The visitors have only played on away game so far this season in which they shipped three goals without reply against Moreirense.

Benfica’s last five wins have been accompanied by clean sheets and Gil Vicente have failed to score in two of their last four matches. Over 3.5 goals have been scored in three of Benfica’s last five matches, two of which ended 5-0, which adds more weight to our prediction of a home win, over 3.5 goals being scored, and the scoreline ending 5-0.

We’re confident that Benfica will win and over 3.5 goals will be scored on Saturday .
