Porto will welcome Gil Vicente to the Estadio de Dragao on Saturday for a matchday five fixture in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

The hosts were comfortably beaten 3-1 by Manchester City in their Champions League opener, while Gil Vicente played out a 1-1 draw at home to Tondela in the league last weekend.

Porto currently sit second on the standings, five points behind table-toppers Benfica and they will be keen to get back to winning ways to avoid losing further ground on their rivals.

Gil Vicente are currently 12th on the table, with five points picked up from their three matches so far.

FC Porto vs Gil Vicente Prediction

Porto are currently on a three-game winless run in all competitions and, for a club of their stature, this is simply unacceptable.

The Dragons have picked up just seven points from their four league matches thus far and are already playing catch-up to Benfica at this early stage of the season.

Given the strength-in-depth of Sergio Conceicao's side, they should easily pick up a win here against Gil Vicente, although they will be wary of another upset at home, after Maritimo beat them 3-2 before the international break.

Prediction: FC Porto 3-0 Gil Vicente
