Porto are still in the title race but can't afford to drop any more points as they currently sit seven points behind the league leaders Sporting. Estoril need points of their own but for a very different reason as they battle to stay in Portugal's top-flight.

Porto: Won four of last six

Zaidu Sanusi, Ivan Marcano and Gabriel Veron make up the three main injury concerns for Porto this weekend, so we're expecting the same starting eleven that beat Vizela to take to the field against Estoril.

Predicted lineup: Costa (GK), Pepe, Wendell, Mário, Otávio, González, Varela, Galeno, Aquino, Evanilson & Conceição

Player to watch – Galeno

Porto's 26-year-old attacker Galeno has been a very good squad player for the Portuguese giants, ever since he made the move from Braga in 2022.

The 26-year-old has netted six times in 24 appearances in the Primeira Liga this season and is now just two off his total from the previous campaign. However, it's the forwards creativity that has impressed the most this season with Galeno leading the way with six assists for Porto.

Scoring important goals as well as creating them

We're backing Galeno to put in another solid performance for Porto this weekend which could easily lead to him adding to either his goals or his assists tally, possibly both!
