Reason For Pacos Ferreira vs Gil Vicente Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in the last 4 meetings between these two clubs.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 3 of P. Ferreira’s last 5 matches.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 5 of Gil Vicente’s last 6 matches.
  • Gil Vicente have lost 5 of their 7 away games in the Primeira Liga.

The visitors have struggled on the road this season

Pacos Ferreira played out a goalless draw in their last league game against fellow strugglers Portimonense, while Gil Vicente claimed all three points at home to another of the relegation battlers, Belenenses. We’re expecting a closely fought match between these two clubs this weekend as their last four encounters have produced under 2.5 goals as have three of Pacos Ferreira’s last five outings and five of Gil Vicente’s last six matches.

The hosts have won three of their eight home games in the league and certainly play much better in front of their own fans than they do on the road. Gil Vicente have only picked up one away win so far and have lost five times on the road, so you can start to see just why we have backed a 1-0 win for Pacos Ferreira this Sunday.

The hosts average 1.25 points per home game while Gil Vicente average just 0.57 points per away game, both of which are below the league average. Pacos Ferreira have won 38% of their home games and score an average of 0.88 goals per home game, while Gil Vicente have lost 71% of their games on the road and concede an average of 1.57 goals per away game.

Recent encounters between these two clubs have been low-scoring

Just 38% of Pacos Ferreira’s home games have produced over 2.5 goals or have seen both teams score while only 43% of Gil Vicente’s away games have produced three or more goals and the same percentage have seen both teams score, which adds further weight to our prediction of under 2.5 goals to be scored this weekend and the hosts claiming a 1-0 win.

Pacos Ferreira have only scored 7 goals at home this season but have also only conceded 8 goals in their own backyard, which is why we’re expecting a low-scoring match this Sunday. The hosts have kept clean sheets in an impressive 38% of their home games so far this season, while Gil Vicente have failed to score in 57% of their away games and on each of those occasions, the visitors have gone on to lose-to-nil.

Exactly 1 goal has been scored in 50% of Pacos Ferreira’s home games as well as in 29% of Gil Vicente’s away games and a majority of Pacos Ferreira’s wins this season (4) have been obtained with a 1-goal margin, while a majority of Gil Vicente’s defeats (3) have had a 1-goal margin, which all backs up our prediction for a 1-0 home win on Sunday.
