Gil Vicente and Porto will battle for three points in the Portuguese Primeira Liga on Friday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw away to Belenenses on Saturday. Giorgi Aburjania scored an injury time equalizer after Ziga Frelih's own goal had put the hosts ahead in the 83rd minute.

Porto secured a convincing 5-0 victory over Moreirense on home turf a day later. Mehdi Taremi set the ball rolling in the first half while Pepe stepped off the bench to complete the rout in the 79th minute.

Gil Vicente vs Porto Prediction

Gil Vicente are one of the more unpredictable sides in the Portuguese league and are capable of taking on anyone on their day. However, the hosts have been plagued by inconsistencies in recent weeks and are unlikely to pose much of a threat to Porto.

Sergio Conceicao's side will be wary of falling further off Benfica's pace and will give their all to close the gap before the capital side get into action. We are backing Porto to triumph with a convincing victory.

Prediction: Gil Vicente 0-3 Porto
