It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Penafiel gaffer Miguel Leal to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group. Vasco Braga (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: Chaves
Thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Chaves manager César Peixoto does not have any fitness worries to report before this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Penafiel could well find it tough to see themselves scoring against this Chaves lineup who we think should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore tipping a highly competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Chaves at the end of this one.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
