THE TEAM NEWS
- Desportivo Aves’ impending relegation is edging closer with every defeat as they have now lost five in a row and the mood and morale in the camp is particularly poor since the restart of the league.
- They have lost their last five each by a margin of two goals and they have only scored once during that time and even the comments coming from the coach following the last two defeats have been resigned to the drop.
- Their task against Tondela was not helped by Ricardo Mangas’ red card just after half-time so he misses out here while forward Marius Mouandilmadji is ineligible to play against his parent club here so that weakens even further.
- Porto got back to winning ways last time out as they edged past Maritimo by a solitary goal and the result was key even though the performance was still way below the high standards they usually set.
- Alex Telles was sent off in that game and misses out here while Wilson Manafa is also suspended so that means changes to both full-back positions for this trip to face struggling Aves.
- Other than the enforced changes in defence, the rest of the team remains the same and they will hope the front six can improve their levels of creativity although they face the worst defence in the division here.
Porto have been stuttering since the league resumed but this match against Aves hands them the perfect opportunity to score goals and build some confidence. The hosts are resigned to relegation and the belief in the camp is completely gone. Their defence is easily the worst in the division and while Porto are missing a couple of defenders, Aves are unlikely to be good enough to expose that. Expect a comfortable victory for Porto and they could rack up the goals here.
