Team News: Vitória Guimarães
Aziz (Ruptured knee ligament), Pedro Henrique (Unknown Injury), Matheus Mascarenhas (Tendonitis) and Alhassan Wakaso (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing for Guimarães manager Ivo Vieira.
In our view, Os Vimaranenses should employ a 4-3-3 formation, utilising Douglas Jesus, Falaye Sacko, Easah Suliman, Frederico Venancio, Víctor García, Andre, Pedro Rodrigues, João Carlos Teixeira, Marcus Edwards, Davidson and Bruno Duarte da Silva.
Team News: Vitória Setúbal
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Vitória Setúbal manager Julio Velázquez to be concerned about. Frédéric Mendy (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game.
We are inclined to think that Os Sadinos seem likely to play in a 4-4-2 formation using Lucas Paes Souza, Mano, Jubal, Artur Jorge, Silvio, Hildeberto Pereira, Jose Semedo, Nuno Valente, Brian Mansilla, Carlinhos and Helder Tiago Guedes.
When taking all factors into account, Vitória Guimarães have it within them to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target. At the same time, Vitória Setúbal could well find it tough to score - but, we do see them being dangerous at times. Therefore, we are anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Vitória Guimarães at full-time.
