Sporting team news

A successful title defence for Sporting is looking somewhat unlikely at the moment. Even though Ruben Amorim’s side find themselves in second heading into this weekend’s game they’re six points behind top spot. Momentum is also on Porto’s side with the Lions having won just three of their last five Primeira Liga games which also includes two losses. Last time out at home Braga ended their 35-match unbeaten run. From a selection point-of-view Amorim has a full squad with Sebastian Coates returning to first-team training this week.

Sporting predicted XI: Adan; Neto, Inácio, Feddal; Porro, Ugarte, Luis Nunes, Santos; Goncalves, Paulinho, Sarabia.

Famalicao team news

A third winless game on the bounce leaves Famalicão in the relegation zone albeit they’re one point adrift of safety. More concerning for Azuis e Brancos boss Rui Pedro Silva is the fact his side have won just once across their past nine league outings. During this period they’ve suffered four losses, however it’s one defeat in six coming into this latest matchday. Silva, the former Wolves assistant manager, is without Heriberto Tavares who underwent surgery at the end of last year. He’s joined on the sidelines by Diogo Figueiras and Rúben Lima.

Famalicao predicted XI: Reis Junior; Penetrates, Curls, Alex, Marin; Assuncao, Pickel; Rodrigues, Pajuelo, Rodrigues; Banza.
