Tip Reasoning

  • Gil Vicente are unbeaten in their last nine away league fixtures (Won 5, Drawn 4).
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight Porto home Primeira Liga matches.
  • Both teams have scored in six of the last nine Gil Vicente away league games.

Roosters can strut their stuff at the Dragao

Porto may well prevail in Sunday night’s Primeira Liga tussle with in-form Gil Vicente, but the value in the betting markets lies with the visitors to deny the Dragons all three points.

The Roosters arrive on the back of an eight-game unbeaten run that includes a recent win at Benfica and their away record is almost as good as that of reigning champions Sporting. Ricardo Soares’ side have won five and drawn two of their last seven road games and will be at full strength for the trip to the Estadio do Dragao.

That cannot be said of their hosts, who lost midfielders Matheus Uribe and Marko Grujic to suspension in last weekend’s dour 1-0 win at Moreirense, which was arguably their worst team performance in some time.

Moreirense win was a struggle for Porto

Sergio Conceicao’s men appeared to be hanging on for the final whistle after going down to ten men when Grujic was sent off, although ultimately they got their ninth straight away win. The balance of Porto’s midfield could be thrown off by Uribe’s absence in particular and this could enable Gil Vicente to carry a greater goal threat than the oddsmakers are reckoning for.

Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight Porto home Primeira Liga matches anyway as Conceicao’s defence have been guilty of lapses in concentration. Gil Vicente have scored in their last nine away trips and conceded in six of them, so we like the look of the BTTS play as the basis of our main selection here.

It may seem bold to oppose Porto to some, but Gil Vicente have shown enough quality and consistency this season to suggest they can emerge from this clash with a point, so we are minded to pursue the bigger profits available to a draw and BTTS bet.

Visitors’ attack could be good for a couple

Porto are bound to make changes from the string line-up they fielded on Thursday in the 2-2 draw with Lazio and any weakening of that unit could further help Gil Vicente’s quest for a priceless point. The correct score pick of 2-2 reflects the faith we have in a Gil Vicente attack that has scored multiple goals in five of their last eight league games.
