Gil Vicente vs Vitoria de Guimaraes Match Analysis & Prediction
17/01/2023 12:15 am
Round of 16 of the Portuguese Primeira Liga comes to an end on Tuesday morining when Gil Vicente and Vitoria de Guimaraes meet at the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos.
Still argonising their recent Taca de Portugal exit, the visitors will head into the contest looking to end their six-game losing run and get their season back on track.
Gil Vicente were sent home empty handed once again as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to 10-man Boavista when the sides met at the Estadio do Bessa last Sunday, with Yusupha Njie scoring the only goal of the game shortly after the half-hour mark.
Daniel Sousa’s side have now lost each of their last four away matches in the Primeira Liga, conceding 10 goals and scoring just three since September’s 2-1 victory over Maritimo at the Estadio do Maritimo.
They now return home, where they are on a run of two successive wins, beating Nacional 2-0 in the tace da Liga on November 27 to end an eight-game winless home streak before claiming a 1-0 victory over Santa Clara in their final game of 2022.
With 12 points from 16 matches, Gil Vicente are currently 16th in the Primeira Liga standings, two points adrift of 15th-placed Santa Clara just outside the relegation playoff spot.
Vitoria Guimaraes were eliminated from the Taca de Portugal as they suffered a 3-2 defeat to Sporting Braga after squandering a two-goal lead in the final 10 minutes.
Joao Teixeira’s side have now failed to win any of their last six matches across all competitions, a run that also saw them crash out of the Taca da Liga after picking up three draws from three and finishing second in Group F.
However, Os Vimaranenses are on a decent run in the Primeira Liga, where they are unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches, claiming five wins and three draws, including last Saturday’s goalless draw against Rio Ave at the Dom Afonso Henriques.
Vitoria Guimaraes have won seven, drawn three and lost five of their 15 league matches this season to collect 24 points and sit sixth in the table, three points behind fifth-placed Casa Pia in the final Conference League playoff spot.

Vitoria de Guimaraes Team News
Vitoria Guimaraes remain without Portuguese midfielder Tomas Handel, who continues his long journey to full fitness after suffering a knee injury last February.
Anderson Silva and Jota Silva were both on target in last week’s cup defeat to Braga and we expect the duo to spearhead the attack for the second consecutive game.
