Team News: Vitória Guimarães
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Vitória Guimarães boss João Moreno to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Tomás Händel (Muscle Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Porto
Porto boss Sérgio Conceição has to choose a team with limited availability. Zaidu (Tear in the abductor muscle) and Evanilson (Unknown Injury) are not able to play.
We’re thinking that Porto will most probably score a couple of goals when they line up against Vitória Guimarães, who may well find it hard getting goals.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 0-2 margin for Porto come full-time.
