Rui Vitoria’s team have been undefeated (11W, 2D) so far at Estádio da Luz and they will stride to keep it like that.
Left-back Alex Grimaldo won’t be playing. Defender Victor Lindelof is also unsure of play. Further, defensive midfielder Filipe Augusto will be cheering the team from the sidelines as well.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s men have posted four wins in the last five league matches and suffered only one defeat so far in the season.
There have been no reports of injury or sickness in Porto. The players are ready to take account of the one-point deficit to Benfica.
