Team News

  • Head coach João Pedro Sousa has a clean bill of health heading into Saturday.
  • Vaná was signed on deadline day and will contend with Defendi for a starting spot between the sticks.
  • Guga and Uros Racic will be in competition to start in the middle of the park.
  • Diogo Gonçalves could start if coach João Pedro Sousa decides to ring some changes up front.
  • Lionn was sent off last time around. New signing Konaté will deputise.
  • Maracás is Paços' only injury concern for Saturday. André Micael Pereira would be his replacement if he fails to recover.
  • Pepa will make his debut as Paços de Ferreira coach after Filipe Rocha's dismissal.
  • It remains to be seen whether he will make wholesale changes to the usual starting XI.


  • Famalicão are enjoying a dream start to their return to top-flight competition as they are currently at top of the table, a point above Benfica and FC Porto, who are chronic title contenders. Expect them to be full of confidence here.
  • Paços will hope for a new manager bounce after a disastrous start to the campaign that sunk them to the bottom of the table with just a point from their first four fixtures.
  • Famalicão are playing wonderful football and have a better team than Paços. Anything but a home win would be a surprise.
