📋 Team News: Gil Vicente
Gil Vicente boss Daniel Sousa has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ali Alipour (Unknown Injury) and Stanislav Kritsyuk (Unknown Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Gilistas appear most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, starting Andrew, Ze Carlos, Manuel Lopes, Tomas Araujo, Henrique Gomes, Carvalho, Giorgi Aburjania, Murilo, Kanya Fujimoto, Bilel Aouacheria and Fran.
Our feeling is that Vitória Guimarães have it within them to be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
In contrast, Gil Vicente won’t find it easy to get a goal of their own but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be hitting back at some stage here, too.
We can therefore see a comfortable 3-1 victory for Vitória Guimarães after 90 minutes.
