More, three players are not available for this match, Tony ( def.21 1g), Ricardo ( def.29) and Thiago Valente ( def.25+1) and Hurtado ( midf. 22+6 8g joint second scorer) is doubtful after his involvment in NT friendly against South Korea.
Also newcomer Ribeiro ( midf.) is unavailable, so hosts have a team new in many part of field, lots of its last season power in attack gone or in doubt and a defense and a midfield with important players gone or out.
Guests have also lost some regualr, among them both last season's keepers Quim and Beto and second scorer Viana (7g), but didn't loose in nine preseason friendlies in which met also teams as Norwich, Newcastle, Sporting, West Ham
For this match only last season topscorer Eder ( 13g), an important absences,but with all the problems that Pacos has for this match Braga should be able to win this match.
