Miullen (Knee Injury) and Alaa Abbas (Ankle Injury) won’t be available for Gil Vicente gaffer Ricardo Soares.
Team News: Farense
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Farense boss Jorge Costa to be concerned about. Rafael Defendi (Ankle Surgery) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that Farense and Gil Vicente could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We therefore see a tight encounter with a 1-1 score draw at the end of this game.
