Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
Estadio Municipal de Rio Maior will host Saturday’s Taca da Liga game between Vilafranquense and Vitoria Guimaraes. Filipe Gouveia’s troops are doing well in Liga Portugal 2, with the team sitting just one point behind the playoffs berth, and they must be high on spirits following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Torreense. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team, but Ivory Coast international Balla Sangare should be recalled to the starting XI after scoring a late winner at the weekend.
The Primeira Liga side, on the other hand, aim to build on a 1-0 win over Maritimo. Guimaraes have been in a fine form of late, and seeing that Vilafranquense are fully focused on league matches, away win should be considered. Andre limped off with injury in the triumph over Maritimo, with Silva likely to step up. Midfielder Ibrahima Bamba is back from suspension for the away team.
