Team News

Porto
Gil Vicente
  • Pepê has served his suspension in midweek and will likely bring fresh legs to the hosts.
  • Galeno will be boosted after a brace and an assist against Shakhtar.
  • Tiba had a wonderful performance last time around and will probably get the nod over Martim Neto if Fujimoto returns to the Starting XI.
  • Depú scored his first goal with the new team and will likely get the nod over Touré upfront.

Prediction

  • FC Porto got back-to-back away wins beating Estrela da Amadora for Primeira Liga and Shakhtar Donetsk for the UEFA Champions League. The Dragons have improved their defensive process and will likely deliver a decent performance here.
  • In an 8-goal thriller, Gil Vicente got all three points, beating Estoril by 5-3 last time around. That was the second time that Vítor Campelos' men scored 5 goals this season, which reflects how well they tend to play when they get things going up front.
  • The visitors were able to shock their next opponents last year, beating them by 2-1. Given their confidence and FC Porto's fatigue due to their European meeting in midweek, they might replicate that.
