Gil Vicente vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions
- Sporting have won eight of their nine away trips this season (D1).
- Leoes have won their last three starts on the road without conceding (all 0-2).
- Gli Vicente have lost three of their last four home games (D1), failing to score in three of those fixtures.
Clear leaders Sporting Lisbon have dropped just two points on the road all season and Ruben Amorim’s charges should have far too much class for 13th placed Gil Vicente in Barcelos this Tuesday evening.
Leoes cemented their position at the top of the Primeira Liga with an excellent 1-0 victory over main rivals Benfica at the start of the month and they backed up that success on Friday night with a cosy 0-2 victory at Maritimo.
That result marked Sporting’s eighth win from nine (D1) on their travels this season and their third away triumph on the bounce without concession.
Each of those fixtures finished 0-2 which is our correct score prediction here, and our main fancy for this midweek contest is an away victory to nil.
Aside from their recent results on the road and the fact that Sporting have maintained clean sheets in six of their nine away matches overall, Gil Vicente have claimed just one point from their last four outings in Barcelos, failing to net in three.
Indeed, the hosts have managed just six goals in total on their own patch this term, so this looks set to be a really comfortable assignment for Sporting as they seek to at least maintain their six point advantage at the head of affairs.
