Boavista vs Porto team news

Boavista

Boavista slipped to a narrow 1-0 defeat away at Gil Vicente last weekend. A draw probably would have been a fair result but Gil Vicente was awarded a sixty-fourth-minute penalty which Murilo converted to win the game for the home side.

Salvador Agra picked up an injury in that defeat and had to be replaced by Masa after just seventeen minutes and the midfielder looks set to be joined on the sidelines by Cesar who is out until April with an ACL injury.

Predicted Lineup: Gonçalves (GK), Abascal, Awaziem, Onyemaechi, Malheiro, Vukotić, Reisinho, Masa, Lourenço, Boženík & Morais

Porto

Porto had the home advantage against Chaves for what was a very tight and tense ninety minutes at the Estádio Do Dragão. In the end, a solitary goal in the fifty-eighth minute by Joao Mario proved enough for Porto to claim victory against a well-organised Chaves side.

Samuel Portugal, Ivan Marcano and Gabriel Veron are the three main injury concerns for the visitors ahead of Friday's match.

Predicted Lineup: Costa (GK), Wendell, Cardoso, Zé Pedro, Mário, Eustáquio, Franco, Varela, Taremi, Martínez & Aquino

Player to Watch: Evanilson

Porto's Brazilian forward top scores for the club this season with just four league goals. We're backing Evanilson as our player to watch this weekend, even if he starts the match from the bench.

Mehdi Taremi is usually Porto's star player and leading goalscorer but this season the Iranian striker has been misfiring with just three league goals to his name, one of which came from the penalty spot.

Evanilson is capable of scoring into double figures as was proven during the 2021/22 campaign when the Brazilian scored fourteen times in the league alone. This time around, Evanilson has netted four goals in eight starts and is on target to beat last season's goal tally of seven.
