Previous point. Yes, the games are unrelated because they are from different competitions, but a victory against a strong opponent like Sporting de Braga leaves FC Porto with another confidence. All coaches in the football world have admitted it. It’s always easier to work on a win. Moreover when that victory leaves FC Porto with a foot and a half in the final of Jamor.
Last night FC Porto presented with some absences … at the option of Sérgio Conceição. Iker Casillas, Éder Militão, Tiquinho Soares, Moussa Marega, Yacine Brahimi and Danilo Pereira were on the bench and can thus beholders in the match with Benfica in the 24th round of the I Liga.
