Team News

  • With Piccini and Mathieu still doubts, Ristovski and Pinto could keep their spots in the starting XI here.
  • After rotating in the cup, Jesus will recall Gelson Martins, Bruno Fernandes, Bas Dost and William Carvalho for this match.
  • After a midweek cup game, Vidigal will likely revert back to the team similar to the one that got a point against Chaves last weekend.
  • Arango could very well get a spot in the XI after his midweek glory, though.
  • Sporting loanee Gauld is out for that exact reason.


  • Sporting come in to this match after a 5-0 win over Marítimo in the league and hard fought 2-1 win over second-tier side Cova da Piedade in the cup on Wednesday. Still unbeaten in the league, they have kept clean sheets in six of their nine home games.
  • Aves will be high on confidence after overcoming Rio Ave on penalties in the cup, having drawn 4-4 after extra time. This could prove a defining point in their season as they are two points above the relegation zone. However, they would have wanted to go anywhere that the José Alvalade right now.
