Porto can secure their spot in the Europa League knockout rounds with a win or draw against Lazio tomorrow.
Coach Sergio Conceicao has most of his players available to him for tomorrow’s clash against the Biancocelesti, with only Fernando Andrade and Wilson Manafa out injured.
Porto are having an incredibly strong season and their recent form reflects this; coming into the second leg of the play-offs against Lazio, the Portuguese side beat Moreirense 1-0, the Biancocelesti 2-1 at home and they had a 2-2 draw with Sporting.
Conceicao’s side currently sit top of the Primeira Liga, six points ahead of second place Sporting, making another league title look likely.
Expected Starting Lineup
Porto are expected to use the same starting lineup as the one that beat Lazio 2-1 last week, although there’s a chance that they’ll begin the match in a 4-3-3 formation rather than the 4-4-2 double six used at home.
- Porto (4-3-3): Diogo Costa; Joao Mario, Mbemba, Pepe, Zaidu; Otavio, Grujic, Uribe; Fabio Vieira, Toni Martinez, Pepè.
