Team News: Leixões
Leixões boss Manuel Cajuda does not have any fitness worries whatsoever before this game thanks to a completely injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Porto B
Out of a mainly available squad, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Porto B manager Rui Barros to be concerned about. Mouhamed Mbaye (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
In our view, Leixões might well have a job on their hands to get anything against this Porto B team who we think will score & stay on top.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 0-1 advantage for Porto B at the conclusion of the game.
There should be little in it.
