Gil Vicente form and stats

There's been little loot from Gil Vicente's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 10 away games in the Primeira Liga. Gil Vicente only have 1 win to counter their 6 defeats and 3 draws.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Sporting Braga (placed 4th) in their previous outing. The Primeira Liga match ended in a draw 2-2. A loss against Moreirense was the result prior to that, in a home game.

Gil Vicente's last match (vs Sporting Braga) ended in drama as all points looked lost at the score 0-2. They did not give up, fought back and in the end a courageous finish rescued a draw after 90 minutes thanks to a 85th minute equalizer by Vitor Carvalho. Vitor Carvalho was the key player in the comeback draw against Sporting Braga, being brought on as a substitute in the 31st minute and scoring two goals to make the result 2-2.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Gil Vicente playing away and similar expectations, we found three relevant matches. Results were one Gil Vicente win, one draw and one defeat.

The visitors have scored 7 goals from 10 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. Gil Vicente have conceded 15 goals in these games.
