Paços de Ferreira team news
The hosts in this Sunday evening contest are the epitome of a mid-table side. With 10 games remaining in the domestic campaign, Paços de Ferreira sit 10th in Portugal’s 18-team Primeira Liga. Their 27 points in 24 games have them clear of danger (seven points clear of 16th and a relegation playoff), but a whopping 15 (12 if they secure victory here) off of fifth, and place a next season’s Europa Conference League.
Paços de Ferreira are looking for a third consecutive league win for the first time this season, though we’ll hold off on calling them ‘in-form’ just yet, as those two victories came against bottom-of-the-table Belenenses and 14th-placed Vizela.
At a glance, it looks as though Paços de Ferreira come into this game shorthanded, with two defenders and two attackers unavailable. However, both of those defenders (Flavio and Jorge Silva) and one of the attackers (Ndri Koffi) are largely big-part players. A potentially more important miss is Hélder Ferreira, a frontline fixture who’ll miss out due to yellow cards. However, the team’s leading scorers, Denilson (6 goals) and Nuno Santos (4), will be in action and, with Lucas Silva, ensuring that the void isn’t too glaring.
Paços de Ferreira predicted XI: André Ferreira, Fernando Fonseca, Maracás, Marco Baixinho, Vitorino Antunes, Mohamed Diaby, Luiz Carlos, Matchoi Djaló, Nuno Santos, Lucas Silva, Denilson
Porto team news
Porto enter this game with their focus firmly on a third league title in five years. Os Dragões sit atop the league table, three points clear of Sporting in second, and seven clear of Benfica in third, with this game in hand. Though Porto are neither the most prolific attacking side in the Premeira Liga (their are 59 goals are second to Benfica’s 65) nor owners of the stingiest defence (they’ve allowed 17 goals, while Sporting have allowed 16) they are the league’s most well-rounded team, boasting a joint league-best +42 goal difference.
Porto are impressively unbeaten in 24 league games this season, with 20 wins. It is worth noting, however, that two of their last three games (home games against Sporting and fifth-place Gil Vicente) have yielded only draws, and that Sergio Conceicao’s side is in the midst of a quite congested portion of their schedule. This is Porto’s fourth match in 11 days (Europa League v Lazio on 24 Feb; the league game against Gil Vicente on 27 Feb; and a Taça de Portugal semifinal against Sporting on 2 March), and they have another Europa League playoff against Lyon looming at midweek. On the bright side, Conceicao will have a full roster from which to choose, as Porto are essentially untouched by injury or suspension.
This visit to nearby (35 km) Paços de Ferreira is unlikely to produce fireworks, but we should expect the league leaders to put forth a professional performance that secures victory with minimal stress.
Porto predicted XI: Diogo Costa, João Mário, Fabio Cardoso, Chancel Mbemba, Wendell, Pepê, Vítinha, Stephen Eustáquio, Wenderson Galeno, Toni Martínez, Evanilson
