Benfica and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Benfica won both league meetings between these sides last season and can claim the spoils here. However, Gil Vicente have scored six goals in two games this term and the visitors have only managed one clean sheet in their last six away, so back Benfica to win and concede.

Benfica 3-1

Reason for tip

Both of Benfica’s wins over Gil Vicente last season came by two-goal margins and they can win with room to spare yet again. The hosts have been in good scoring form and can grab a consolation effort so a 3-1 win for the defending champions appeals.

Alexandre Rafa Silva To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Rafa Silva has scored in both of Benfica’s league games this season and has also managed two assists. He can make it three goals in three games when the Lisbon club head to Gil Vicente.

Gil Vicente vs Benfica Predictions

  • Gil Vicente have scored six goals in two games.
  • Benfica have conceded in five of their last six away games.
  • Benfica won both league meetings last season.

Benfica playing catch-up

Benfica’s Primeira Liga defence is off to a rocky start after defeat at Boavista in their opening fixture.

The Lisbon club did bounce back with a 2-0 win over Estrella last time out and will be looking to follow that up with another three points at Gil Vicente on Saturday.

Back Benfica to win and concede

Benfica are the heavy favourites to win here and they should be expected to claim maximum points after doing the league double over their hosts last term.

However, Gil Vicente can at least get on the scoresheet as they have hit six goals in their two league games.

Benfica have conceded in five of their last six competitive away games. Their one clean sheet during that run did come at this venue, but Gil Vicente did manage to carve out a few opportunities (13 shots in total, five on target) and can strike in defeat on Saturday.

Silva the danger man

Rafa Silva has scored in both of his league appearances this season and also laid on an assist in the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira win over Porto.

As such, Silva looks a good contender for a goal at anytime on Saturday and a 3-1 win for Benfica is the correct score prediction.

Both of As Águias’ wins over Gil Vicente last season were by two-goal margins and they can win with a bit of room to spare again.
