Gil Vicente Odds
Vicente’’s past few years have been filled with all matter of controversies.
Due to a legal quagmire in Portuguese football known as the Mateus Affair, various clubs have been promoted and relegated due to irregularities. This saved The Roosters from ending up in the third flight – they spent 3 seasons between 2015 and 2018 in the Segunda, even ending the last one in the relegation zone. The whole affair earned them a spot in the Primeira, for better or worse.
Imagine the crowd’s surprise when they actually ended last season in 10th place. It seems the top flight is the right home for them – though most Gil Vicente betting predictions aren’t so optimistic going into 2020/21. Of course, we’re not strictly talking about outright odds – At 1000, no-one is expecting a title here.
A few legs of the season are over and Gil Vicente are struggling to beat teams they went toe-to-toe with last season. It’s clear their form has taken a downward turn.
Gil Vicente Key Players
If there’s one consistency about this club’s lineup, it’s that it's stacked with young Brazilian players.
Centre-backs Ygor Nogueira and Rodrigão are back, though wingback Henrique Gomes might be forced to miss a good chunk of the season due to an injury. Last season’s winger duo Samuel Lino and Lourency also stayed with the squad, though their offensive efforts will have to make do without striker Sandro Lima who went back to Brazil.
Defensive midfielder Lucas Mineiro is likely this season’s most notable arrival. It seems this year, attacks will be staged from much further up the pitch, with a focus on the wings as primary avenues for attacks.
Gil Vicente Rivalry
There are no rivalries involving Gil Vicente, not in the classic sense of the word, anyway. There might, however, be some anger directed towards them from Chaves at the moment, who were relegated in specific circumstances. Two bottom teams are usually relegated from the Primeira Liga, but due to Gil Vicente’s controversial promotion, last season saw three teams go down to the Liga Pro in order to avoid expanding the Primeira, the third being Chaves.
Gil Vicente History
In the spring of 1924, in the city of Barcelos, a group of friends were playing football near a theatre that bore the name of a Portuguese playwright – Gil Vicente. Inspired by the formation of Barcelos Sporting Club and Uniao Football Club Barcelense, they founded their own club and named it Gil Vicente Football Barcelense.
The club struggled greatly through the decades since then, starting immediately with trying to find a pitch to play on. However, their efforts were rewarded in 1990, when they finally reached the top tier for the first time. Apart from between 1997 and 1999, the club mostly managed to maintain their top-flight status until the events in 2006 which saw them relegated for allegedly fielding an ineligible player – Angolan striker Mateus. The club were accused of illegally resolving the matter of Mateus’ contract with his former employers FC Lixa. As a result of their relegation, Belenenses, who were supposed to go down, were allowed to stay up.
It was precisely that act that has now been overruled in court, granting Gil Vicente their return to the Primeira Liga this season. Justice appears to have been done now, and it remains to be seen where the club will go from here.
