Gil Vicente vs Pacos de Ferreira Match Analysis and Prediction

Gil Vicente will be looking to replicate their impressive 2021-22 season when they welcome Pacos de Ferreira to Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on Monday, as they set ou on a new Primera Liga campaign.

After equalling their best ever finish of fifth in the Portuguese top flight, and qualifying for European football, the hosts begin their campaign against a side that struggled to score last season.

Following their success in last season’s battle for ‘best of the rest’ in the Primera Liga, placed behind the established top four, Gil Vicente have a lot to live up to in the coming months.

Ivo Vieira’s side returned to the top flight in 2019, and after recording successive mid-table finishes, they picked up 51 points from 34 matches last season to secure a Europa Conference League qualification spot ahead of Vitoria de Guimaraes.

In midweek, the Galos kicked off their qualification campaign for Europe’s third-tier competition at the Skonto Stadium, in the first leg of their third round tie against Riga FC.

Trailling by a goal heading into the final half-hour, Gil Vicente managed to find an invaluable equaliser through Juan Manuel Boseli, and they are well-placed to progress after bext Thursday’s return leg.

Pacos de Ferreira could only one point from their two league meetings with Gil Vicente during the 2021-22 campaign, and they recorded just nine victories all season long, ending up stranded in mid-table.

Sitting nine points clear of the relegation zone when the action concluded in May, Ferreira also scored goals at a rate of fewer than one per game, which undermined any hopes of challenging for the European places.

Having replaced Jorge Simao midway through last season, Cesar Peixoto will be hoping for a more positive approach, but has been limited by a lack of movement in the transfer market this summer.

Pacos de Ferreira news

Pacos will be without last season’s first-choice goalkeeper Andre Ferreira, who joined La Liga side Granada, but Jordi has recovered from a long-term injury in time to start between the sticks.
