Gil Vicente Benfica betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

The Benfica team goes to this match obliged to win to maintain or shorten the distance for the leadership, but comes from a series of matches with very unconvincing performances. Gil Vicente should be able to create their own goal opportunities, not least because the “eagles” have been poor defenders, and at the same time, complicate, through their defensive organization, Jorge Jesus' team strategic moves. It is foreseen with a high degree of probability that Benfica will have a complicated match and win, at most, by one goal difference.
