BALL - "The big goal is to pass a draw" (Gil Vicente)

Gil Vicente starts his European adventure this Wednesday against Riga in the 3rd qualifying round of the Conference League. In Latvia, the Barcelos emblem will write a special chapter in its history, entering the duel with a sense of responsibility and great ambitions.

“The club will enjoy the historic moment it achieved last season and I am happy to be able to enjoy it. The team and players are real hard workers. The main goal is to go through a draw and give an answer in terms of commitment and attitude, trying to work with quality,” said Ivo Vieira at a press conference.

The gilist coach talks about the “ungrateful timing” of these rounds, but does not justify anything by this. “This ingratitude has to do with what we can or cannot do. If we are competitive and believe in ourselves, we put that aside and can succeed. And I promise that we will work in this direction,” he added.

The truth is that the Latvian team is already at an advanced stage. “Yes, at this level they are different contexts. The opponent already has 22 games in their league and four more in Europe. He is more identified in terms of play and loads. However, we must remember that we are here on merit and right. Riga is a competitive team, and it seems to me that they also hired three or four divisions specifically for these tasks. Sometimes we make the mistake of discounting leagues with a smaller name but good quality. A draw is within our reach, but only if we do everything to achieve it,” he warned.

Ivo Vieira has a track record in UEFA competitions, in the service of Nacional and V. Guimarães, which the coach does not attach much importance to. “I understand that my experience of participating in European competitions will not be of great importance, although I can use my knowledge to guide and make my athletes believe in myself. 5th place last season is a very good legacy. I am in a state of great personal satisfaction. I will work by focusing on my goals, which are aimed at adding value to athletes and strengthening the club’s position in the League, without blaming any extra pressure. Moreover, my responsibility is always very relevant,” concluded Ivo.

UEFA rankings: Loss to Gil Vicente is bad news for Portugal

The season is just starting, but the news about the UEFA rankings for Portugal is not good anymore.

After V. Guimarães was eliminated from the Conference League, Gil Vicente almost said goodbye to the competition this Thursday. after losing to AZ Alkmaar 4-0.

And more than a loss to a rival from the Netherlands, who ranks sixth in the rankings ahead of Portugal, the eventual elimination of Gil Vicente will matter.

With this victory, AZ Alkmaar gives the Netherlands one more point – plus 0.5 from PSV Eindhoven’s draw on Tuesday in the Champions League play-offs. Which is not a problem, not least because Benfica also won a point for Portugal. beating Dean. Kyiv.

But if the relegation of Gil Vicente is confirmed, Portugal will start the European group stage with only four teams able to score: Porto, Sporting CP, Benfica and Sp. Braga. And these points will always be divided by the total number of teams that have qualified for the competition. That is six.

The Netherlands, which have qualified with only five teams, remain with all of them in the competition for now. And only Twente, which lost this Thursday in Florence to Fiorentina (2-1) is in danger of being removed.

The Netherlands started the season before Portugal, so if the league does not catch up with the Eredivisie at the end of the season, it will fall to seventh place and at the same time lose a place in the Champions League and a team in European competition. There will be five instead of the current six.
