The Gil Vicente team is not an easy side to defeat at home, where they haven’t lost this season, with 2 wins and 4 draws in 6 matches this season. Still in the clashes against Sporting the story is different, they have lost all their last 6 games against the lions. In the last match, they lost at Braga’s stadium 1-0 in the Portuguese Cup.
Rodrigão and Romário Baldé are still injured and will not play.
Probable starting 11: Denis – Henrique Gomes, Banguera, Ruben Fernandes, Fernando Fonseca – Claude Gonçalves, William Soares, Kraev – Lourency, Erick, Sandro Lima
The Sporting is going through a great phase with 6 wins in their last 7 matches. The team is confident after the 4-0 trashing they gave PSV in the Europa League and consequently confirming their qualification for the next round. Bruno Fernandes is in great shape; he is a world-class player with unbelievable long-distance recovery and can score goals at any time.
Seastián Coates and Miguel Luís will miss this match due to injury while Renan Ribeiro is in doubt, but that will not be a problem, because Luis Maximiano was very good against PSV.
Probable starting 11: Luis Maximiano – Acuna, Neto, Mathieu, Rosier – Bruno Fernandes, Doumbia, Wendel – Vietto, Bolasie, Luis Phellype
The Gil Vicente is not easy to defeat at home as I earlier mentioned, but I believe the Sporting are superior and will take advantage of the Europa League momentum to win the 3 points in Barcelos.
