- Gil Vicente haven’t lost any of their last ten match against Aves in all competitions.
- Gil Vicente have won four times at home this season.
- Aves have lost 11 times on the road this season.
- Gil Vicente have kept clean sheets in 31% of their home games and Aves have failed to score in 31% of their away matches.
Both of these sides could really do with a win this weekend
Gil Vicente slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Maritimo on Monday night despite taking an early lead through Kraev while Aves defied the odds to secure a point at home to Porto courtesy of a goalless draw, though the title-challengers were architects of their own downfall having missed some gilt-edged chances including a 22nd-minute penalty.
The hosts will be confident they can make a return to winning ways on Sunday despite losing all three games so far in June as they have an excellent record against Aves. Gil Vicente haven’t lost any of their last ten matches against Aves, including two friendlies, and won the duos’ reverse league fixture 2-1 back in November.
Aves are 7pts adrift at the bottom of the table
Aves are without a win or a goal in June and have now failed to score in five of their last six matches, which doesn’t bode well heading into a must-win period of the season for a side that look destined for relegation. Our prediction for a home win on Sunday is backed up by the fact that Gil Vicente have already won four times in their own backyard this season while Aves have only won once on the road and have lost a whopping ten of 13 away.
Aves secured their only away points this season in February but have since lost their last two say games 2-0. In fact, the visitors have lost four of their last six matches via the same 2-0 scoreline and concede an average of 2.31 goals on the road, making our prediction for a 2-0 Gil Vicente victory look even more promising.
The host shave a good record against their guests
Gil Vicente aren’t in the best of form and only average 1.38 points per home game but this weekend they go up against an Aves side that average 0.31 points per away game and have lost 85% of their away trips this season. The hosts have beaten Porto, Sporting, Maritimo and Belenenses at home this season and we’re confident they will add Aves to that list on Sunday.
