Luiz Phellype (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Luciano Vietto (Shoulder Injury) won’t be available for Sporting CP manager Rúben Amorim.
Team News: Gil Vicente
In an otherwise healthy group, there is just the one fitness issue for the Gil Vicente manager Vítor Oliveira to contend with. Fernando Fonseca (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
In this game, Sporting Lisbon should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create. At the same time, Gil Vicente are also probably going to find it difficult to score themselves - but, we do see them pulling one back during this clash, too. We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 margin for Sporting Lisbon when the full-time whistle blows.
