Team News: Marítimo
Rodrigo Pinho (Unknown Injury), Stefano Beltrame (Unknown Injury) and Sassá (Unknown Injury) won’t be able to feature for Marítimo manager Julio Velázquez.
Team News: Gil Vicente
Gil Vicente boss Ricardo Soares has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Miullen (Knee Injury) and Alaa Abbas (Ankle Injury) are not ready for selection.
We’ve got the feeling that Gil Vicente have the firepower to put a goal past this Marítimo lineup, although it might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 victory for Marítimo when the full-time whistle blows. Hopefully this is a good one.
