Team News: Famalicão
Famalicão manager João Sousa has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
We are thinking that Famalicenses will probably make use of the 4-3-3 formation this time, utilising Vana, Álex Centelles, Roderick Miranda, Nehuén Pérez, Ivo Pinto, Uros Racic, Pedro Gonçalves, Gustavo Assunção, Fabio Martins, Toni Martínez and Diogo Gonçalves.
Team News: Portimonense
Thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from, Portimonense manager Paulo Sérgio has no fitness worries to speak of before this clash. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Lucas Possignolo and Lucas Fernandes.
We believe Portimonense could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 formation, starting Shuichi Gonda, Emmanuel Hackman, Willyan da Silva Rocha, Lucas Possignolo, Henrique Gelain Custódio, Junior Tavares, Pedro Sá, Dener Gomes Clemente, Bruno Tabata, Jackson Martinez and Aylton Boa Morte.
In our view, Portimonense are capable enough to break down this Famalicão side, although that probably won’t be enough to prevent defeat. We’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for Famalicão by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
