KICK off: 5 February 22:00
Information: Maritimo will be reliant on top scorer Rodrigo Pinho if they are to secure an unlikely victory in this game, with the Brazilian having seven Primeira Liga goals and an assist to his name from 13 league appearances. They recently picked up Sassa in a January loan signing from Cruzeiro, with the Brazilian adding a much-needed option in attack for Os Verde-Rubros. The hosts will also be boosted by the returns of Claudio Winck and Edgar Costa, after the pair served one-match suspensions in the loss to Vitoria. Sporting picked up the biggest deal of deadline day in the Primeira Liga, smashing their transfer record to bring in forward Paulinho from Braga. He joins a strong attack including Pedro Goncalves, who leads the league’s scoring charts with 12 goals in 14 Primeira Liga appearances since his move from Famalicao in the summer. The away side will be without experienced centre-back Luis Neto, who is suspended for this game after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the win over Benfica.
