Gil Vicente

Sporting and Gil Vicente play at Alvalade Stadium to the 22nd fixture of the Portuguese League.
The lions have three equalisers (1-1) in the last five matches and only managed to win twice in the last seven. At the moment, Marco Silva's team is at the third place of the league with 44 points. 
At the other hand, the visitors have won two consecutive matches, but they lost seven of the last twelve. José Mota's team is currently at the 15th place of Portuguese League with just 17 points.
Naturally,  Sporting has advantage in the head-to-head between the teams. Sporting has won the last five games against Gil Vicente. 

Analysis of Sporting CP

Marco Silva's team plays a good football. We know that the team isn't in a good vibe right now, but their quality should be enough to obtain success against weaker teams.
Their three midfielders are the great power of the team presently. João Mário, Adrien and William Carvalho are responsible to contain the opponent midfielders and then drive quick transitions from the defence to the attacking zone.
At the front, Marco Silva should go with the same players of the last match. Montero, Carrillo and Nani should start but players like Tanaka or Carlos Mané could go in during the match to surprise Gil Vicente.

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Patrício, Paulo Oliveira, Miguel Lopes, Tobias Figueiredo, Jefferson, André Martins, William Carvalho, João Mário, J. Tanaka, Nani, Carlos Mané.
Coach: Marco Silva.

Analysis of Gil Vicente

The visitors are one of the worst teams in the league. The team commanded by José Mota has plenty weaknesses in his processes. They don't have players of quality, but even tactically they reveal many problems.
The nigerian Simeon Nwankwo is their best scorer. The forward uses his strength to take advantage of the opposite defenders, and has already scored seven times this season.
We expect that Gil Vicente plays very defensively in this game trying to hide their weaknesses. But, against a team of Sporting value it would be very difficult to get any point from this match.

Confirmed Lineup: Adriano Facchini, M. Berger, Ricardinho, Cadú, Evaldo, Diogo Viana, Rúben Ribeiro, Vítor Gonçalves, Sérgio Semedo, S. Nwankwo, Yazalde.
Coach: José Mota.

Betting suggestion:

Sporting should win this. The Alvalade team should put all their superiority in the pitch and take the three points. And attending to the differences between the two teams, Sporting should get the first goal quickly.
