The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Gil Vicente win

Gil Vicente are winless in the last four league matches at home, but they have faced top opposition in three of these games. Even though Arouca might have picked up a victory for the first time in nine matches, but Arouca are yet to achieve any league success in away matches this season. The poor form of the visitors would be a major thing that goes in favour of the hosts.

Total goals over 2.5

Gil Vicente have not scored in two out of the last four matches at home, but a lot of this record has to be down to the opposition’s trend. Meanwhile, Arouca do tend to suffer in away games but they have not lost in a heavy manner. This game, however, will see both teams scoring and driving up the number of goals.

Goals from both teams – yes

Arouca might be struggling with the possibility of relegation, but the team has been able to get goals even in away matches. The latest failure of a goalless draw against Pacos Ferreira was the first time since August that Arouca were unable to score in an away game. Gil Vicente should be able to get goals being the home team.

Gil Vicente

The threat of going down near the relegation zone is increasing more than the euphoria of getting close to European places. Gil Vicente are seven points behind Estoril in fifth place after the latest round of games. João Afonso and Murilo Souza are missing from the team due to injuries.


Arouca have a very difficult job on their hands to try and replicate the results of the latest league match. It would be remarkable to see Arouca winning league encounters – let alone back-to-back league games. Pite is suspended for the game, while Eugeni Valderrama and José Manuel Velázquez are out injured.
