🗞️ Team News: Porto
There’s just a single fitness concern for the FC Porto manager Sérgio Conceição to be concerned about from an otherwise complete set of players. Iván Marcano (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
It’s our opinion that Dragões will probably use the 4-3-3 formation in the match, handing starts to Agustín Marchesín, Alex Telles, Chancel Mbemba Mangulu, Pepe, Jesus Manuel Corona, Andrés Mateus Uribe, Vítor Ferreira, Sérgio Oliveira, Luis Díaz, Tiquinho Soares and Moussa Marega.
📰 Team News: Marítimo
With a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Marítimo manager José Gomes has no fitness worries to speak of before this game.
We reckon that Os Verde-Rubros could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-1-1 formation using Charles Marcelo, Roberto de Jesus Machado Bebeto, Rene Santos, Zainadine Junior, Rúben Ferreira, Edgar Costa, Diego Moreno, Franck-Yves Bambock, Eulánio Ângelo Chipela Gomes Nanú, Xadas and Joel Tagueu.
Marítimo could really find it hard to be scoring even one goal against a FC Porto side who have the capability to set up a big win. We’re expecting a 3-0 winning margin for FC Porto when the full-time whistle blows.
