Sporting will take on Gil Vicente. The match will take place at Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon on Friday, September 30, 2018.
Sportsing looks disappointed at the beginning of the current championship. In seven rounds played, they managed only 10 points. They lost three matches including the last match to Boavista. It was also necessary for them to stop due to the Nations League showdown. The “lions” were able to play five matches in two weeks. Two of these matches were in the Champions League. Sporting won both battles.
Gil Victorente was a typical mid-table player in Portugal’s elite division. They finished fifth in their last championship. Similar results were achieved in 1999-00, when they finished fifth. It is currently in 10th place, according to their usual schedule. This means that they have scored 9 points in seven rounds. The defense is strangely reliable with only 8 goals conceded. It was a predictable result against Porto, 0-2. The “roosters”, however, have not played in the current championship against any other team at the top of the standings. All their opponents were between 12 and the last place in this table.
Galvinente will be going to the lair with the restless and furious “lions”, who are currently six points behind the top three teams and won’t tolerate this anymore. Sporting has a handy opponent in Gil Vicente. In 12 of 13 meetings, Gil Vicente took all three points from Gil Vicente. All of these were very effective and at least two goals were scored in each match. The audience won’t be bored this time, as they expect at least two goals. Most likely, these goals will be scored by their favorite players, who will likely be the most joyous after the match.
Prediction: Sporting to win, and more than 1.5 goals scored.
