Academica vs Gil Vicente Betting Tip:
Académica comes into this match with some pressure, because a team that is aiming for promotion cannot slip up and lose points at home.
The team has lost every match played away from home so far and they even got a player sent off in the last match.
Gil Vicente is on a mid-table position, and they have been getting some points away from home. This will be a close match where the result can go either way.
I think that Académica will desperately try to score in the 1st half to then manage the match and not go into desperation mode due to their lack of points and due to their supporters’ anger.
Académica’s team was built with good quality players, to challenge for promotion, and after the 3 away losses, they need to bounce back today with a win.
