Team News: Casa Pia
The Casa Pia boss Filipe Martins doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from.

Team News: Vitória Guimarães
Vitória Guimarães boss Paulo Turra has some current player fitness concerns. Jota (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Ricardo Mangas (Tear in the abductor muscle) are not ready for selection.
We believe Os Vimaranenses might elect for a 3-5-1-1 lineup by sending out Bruno Varela, Tomas Ribeiro, Manu Silva, Jorge Fernandes, Bruno Gaspar, Joao Mendes, Tiago Silva, Daniel Silva, Afonso Freitas, Jota Silva and Andre.
We are of the inclination to think that Vitória Guimarães and Casa Pia could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a 1-1 score draw after 90 minutes.
