      Gil Vicente vs Porto Predictions

      On Wednesday night, Gil Vicente and Porto meet in the first leg of their Portuguese Cup semi-final. It’s a big opportunity for second tier side Gil Vicente, who are currently fifth in the Segunda Liga, and whose journey to the semi-finals has included victories over Primeira Liga opponents Tondela and Nacional.

      Of course, a clash with Porto is something of a different matter. Perhaps just a little more challenging… Porto have slipped behind in the Primeira Liga table and with Rio Ave and Braga contesting the other semi-final, this competition representatives a significant opportunity. They enter midweek action after picking up a 3-1 away win over Estoril in the weekend’s league contest.

      Head-to-Head

      The two teams met twice in the Primeira Liga last season with Porto winning both games by a combined 7-1 margin over the two games. Porto carry a five-game winning streak against Gil Vicente into this two-leg semi-final match-up.

      Reason for Betting Tip

      Porto’s squad depth will be tested and Gil Vicente will be actively aiming to stifle the game, however, we’re confident enough to back the Over 2.5 Goals. The Segunda Liga side aren’t a defensive powerhouse in their own division, very few Primeira Liga teams are capable of containing Porto and we’ll expect them to want to take control of this tie early, providing the option of resting players in the second leg.
