Team News

  • Bruno Gaspar resumed training on Tuesday and will be available here, leaving Rodrigo Battaglia a the only injury concern.
  • Bas Dost didn't feature against Boavista due to a knee injury, but he's likely to return on Friday.
  • Nemanja Gudelj received his 9th yellow card of the season last time out and will serve a ban here. Idrissa Doumbia, Francisco Geraldes or Miguel Luís could replace the Serbian.
  • Denis Pineda, Alfredo Stephens and Anderson Carvalho, who were not expected to start, are ruled out.
  • Striker Thiago Santana is back after six months out due to a knee injury. Nonetheless, Guilherme Schettine will likely keep his place upfront.
  • Osama Rashid, who's back from injury, Francisco Ramos Martin Chrien and Bruno Lamas will compete for a spot at centre-midfield.


  • Sporting could pressure Braga's 3rd place with a win here in what would be their fourth in the last five Primeira Liga matches. However, they need to up their game as they have underperformed in recent weeks.
  • Santa Clara have earned back-to-back 0-0 draws and sit comfortably in 8th place, eight points above the bottom three. They have one of the best away records in the Primeira Liga, but failed to win three of their last four matches on the road.
  • Sporting could take advantage of an opponent that has nothing to play for, since they've almost reached the main goal of staying in the Primeira Liga for next season.
