Team News: Portimonense
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the Portimonense manager Paulo Sérgio to contend with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Achraf Lazaar (Fibula Fracture) will miss out.
We are thinking that Portimonense could kick off with a 4-3-3 formation in the match and select Samuel Portugal, Fahd Moufi, Pedrão, Lucas Possignolo, Fali Candé, Lucas Fernandes, Carlinhos, G. Wanga Imbula, Shoya Nakajima, Fabricio and Aylton Boa Morte.
Team News: Marítimo
From our viewpoint, Os Verde-Rubros appear most likely to elect for a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Paulo Victor, Claudio Winck, Rodrigo Andrade, Zainadine Junior, Moisés Mosquera, Rafik Guitane, Diogo Mendes, Pedro Pelágio, André Vidigal, Joel Tagueu and H. Roberto Rafael.
Here is a game where Marítimo might have a difficult job to find the net against this Portimonense team who we think might well emerge victorious.
We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning score for Portimonense when the full-time whistle blows.
