Team News: Gil Vicente
Stanislav Kritsyuk (Unknown Injury) and Roan Wilson (Knee Injury) will not be taking part for Gil Vicente manager Vítor Campelos.
It’s our opinion that Gilistas could kick off with a 4-3-3 system for this game, utilising Andrew, Ze Carlos, Gabriel Pereira, Ruben Fernandes, Leonardo Buta, Maxime Dominguez, Pedro Tiba, Kanya Fujimoto, Murilo, Tidjany Toure and Roko Baturina.

With a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Estoril manager Álvaro Pacheco has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
It’s our belief that Canarinhos seem likely to elect for a 4-3-3 system with a starting lineup of Daniel Figueira, Volnei, Erick Cabaco, Bernardo Vital, Tiago Araujo, Joao Marques, Alex Soares, Jordan Holsgrove, Rafik Guitane, Alejandro Marques and Rodrigo Gomes.
In this match, Estoril have it within them to break down this Gil Vicente side, although that may not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Gil Vicente after the 90. Should be a good one.
