Sporting CP vs Maritimo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Although Amorim will be disappointed to see his side’s chances of an invincible season come to an end, against their fiercest rivals of all teams, this final game of the campaign is undoubtedly a time to celebrate. Sporting have sealed their first Primeira Liga title since 2002, finishing well clear of Porto and Benfica in the process. Amorim will be keen to see his side end a fine season on a high.
They face a Maritimo side without a win in their last three, drawing twice and losing once during that time. However, Julio Velázquez’s men are four points clear of the relegation zone with just one game to play, while they could even climb into 12th place if results go their way on the final day. That said, they lost 2-0 on home soil to Sporting in their earlier meeting this season, so even a draw would be an impressive result.
- Sporting CP (vs Benfica): Adan; Inacio, Coates, Reis; Pereira, Nunes, Braganca, Mendes; Goncalves, Santos; Paulinho.
- Maritimo (vs Vitoria SC): Abedzadeh; Winck, Junior, Andrade, China; Guitane, Santos, Pelagio; Correa*, Joel*, Costa.
Bruno Tabata, Tiago Tomás, Luiz Phellype and Pedro Porro will all miss the final game of the season through injury but Feddal should be available to return to central defence.
Joel Tagueu and Jorge Correa are both suspended for the visitors due to yellow card accumulation, while Sassa is injured.

Player to watch: Pedro Goncalves (Sporting CP)
While Sporting already have the title in the bag, Pedro Goncalves will be looking for a big performance here as he goes in search of the Primeira Liga Golden Boot.
The Portuguese midfielder scored a brace against Benfica last time out to hit the 20-goal mark but with Haris Seferovic also scoring twice in that match, it was only good enough to keep him level with the Swiss forward.
Maritimo have only conceded two goals in their last six matches, so Goncalves will have to work hard if he’s to beat Seferovic to this prestigious individual prize. If he can, it’ll signify a remarkable achievement for a midfielder.
