Benfica will welcome Gil Vicente to Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica for a matchday 20 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 21st August 2021 ended in a Benfica 2-0 win. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. Benfica has won 11 matches, and Gil Vicente triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 36% of the time.
Benfica’s latest fixture against FC Arouca ended in an away 2-0 win. Benfica was very dangerous in attack, having attempted five shots on target. Benfica scored in both halves in the 32nd and 90+2 minute.
Gil Vicente’s recent game against Portimonense ended in a home 1-0 win. Galos dominated the game and deserved the win. Gil Vicente deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 74th minute.
So far, Benfica plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.50 points per away game on average compared to 2.11 points at home. Although Benfica is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 22% home clean sheets.
Gil Vicente has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Gil Vicente has collected 1.78 points on average per away game, compared to 1.40 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Gil Vicente kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Benfica is currently unbeaten at home in three games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.
Galos is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Benfica.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Benfica wins on average 2.11 points per home game, compared to 1.78 points per away game for Gil Vicente. My prediction is Benfica to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Benfica’s home and Gil Vicente’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 62% of Benfica’s home and Gil Vicente’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
