Gil Vicente were beaten 1-0 by UEFA Europa Conference League qualified Vitoria in their most recent outing, last weekend. That defeat means it is now just one win in their last ten matches, in a run that stretches back to the start of March.
Under the management of Daniel Sousa, Gil Vicente have had an underwhelming campaign. They started badly and managed to pick up mid-way through the season but have since now drifted back into the bottom-half of the table, where they are set to stay.
The hosts began last season in a similarly poor manner but managed to climb all the way up to fifth and qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference League. They couldn't manage a similar rise this time around.
As we head into the final day of the 2022/23 Primeira Liga season, Santa Clara begin the weekend sitting rock-bottom in the table as the only side that are now mathematically automatically relegated into the second-tier.
The visitors' 1-0 victory at home to Portimonense was not enough to secure survival as their relegation competitors, both Maritimo and Pacos de Ferreira, earned much-needed victories for themselves.
Santa Clara, from the Azores, will spend next season in a lower league but are finishing their top-flight campaign with something of a flourish. That victory last weekend means they have collected seven points in their last five matches.
Gil Vicente will be rushing to get this season over and done with so they can rebuild and try to emulate last season's European qualification next year. The home team have managed just 31 goals in their 33 games so far in what has been a frustrating season. Santa Clara have punched above their weight in recent seasons but will be heading out of the Primeira Liga, despite their recent performances and results. The visitors have managed just 26 goals themselves so, regardless of this final day result, a low-scoring encounter is expected to be in store.
TIP: UNDER 2.5 GOALS
