VIT Vs VIC Dream 11 Prediction: Vitoria slowly settle into their groove with the side embarking on a meaningful set of results in the league.
All season long, Vitoria have found themselves languishing close to 10th place in the points tally of Primeira Liga 2019-20. It has been a mediocre season for a club which has clearly failed to punch above its weight and imbed in place a fruitful set of results, performances which have persistently dragged the side down.
However, for once, the club looks to have finally found its identity. After failing to win a single match in the three, the side has now gone onto register two cleansheets on the bounce and pull off two wins in those encounters as well. The showings have seen the club move all the way into 7th position, a spot the club will be looking to further hammer in its favour.
However, this is not going to be a straightforward clash for them by any means of the word with the side coming across a stiff test in the form of relegation threatened Gil Vicente. The club moved 9 points clear of the bottom 2 the last time around with a 1-0 win over Rio Ave, a result which showed that this side can be a tough nut to crack when functioning to the best of its capabilities.
For all of Gil Vicente’s new found resillinace and the stomach of a fight, the side has failed to address its languishing attacking docket. This is a side which apart from fleeting showings of straight in attack has done little to inspire confidence, an aberration which will leave them flummoxed today.

Dream 11 Picks
At a time when Gil Vicente realised that they couldn’t do anything in the attacking component of the game, the team reverted all of its focus towards bulking up its defence, a gameplan which was massively bolstered by the services of their articulate and acumen filled shot stopper, Denis Cesar.
With Gil Vicente’s attack making for bleak and timid viewing, this rejuvenated Vitoria side will be quietly confident of emerging out of the forthcoming encounter with a cleansheet in its favour. The side has gone onto induct two cleansheets on the bounce, showings which have come owing to the side’s ability to organise itself as a unit and move in cohesive unison.
It sees us opt for a trio of picks from the team, an electric trivalent which has been at the forefront of the side’s newly foraged resillinace defensively. All of Victor Garcia, Falaye Sacko and Federico Venancio are snared by us from the side for the encounter while the visiting team will be represented by the attackingly inclined Henrique Gomes.
While the defensive ambit of the game has been hailed and lauded, Vitoria’s attacking thrust can’t be negated. And its all down to the flair filled and daunting partnership we are indulging in from the side, two names who penchant for coming up with formidable attacking plays at crucial junctures have seen them become mainstays of the side’s gameplan.
Joao Teixeira has had the biggest hand to play in the side’s wins across the last two encounters to make the team’s leading scorer at 8 goals the first name to be roped into our docket He fins company in Davidson Pereira, a player who has run circles around teams and cajoled his way a slew of goals and assists to rise to the occasion for the side.
Gil Vicente on the other hand are going to be represented by the enigmatic and enterprising Bozhidar Kraev, a player who will squarely carry the responsibility of scoring for his side. With Lima out for the day, the five goal man will be accorded with a free hand as he’s asked to express himself freely and give the opposition food to think about.
The three goals for Lourency will make him partner up with Kraev for the encounter whilst the home side on the other hand will see us opt for a duo in this slot as well. We had to make Bruno Duarte the first name to grace the land of our framework from the team with the player having engulfed his team in a bedlam with his 7 goals and 5 assists.
Michael Edwards have played the pinch perfect partner to him with 6 goals and 4 assists to see the two wrap up our set of picks for the imminent faceoff.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 12 goals he’s helped his side craft this season see us make Duarte our captain for today while Joao is the vice-captain.
