On the other side, a late goal by Sebastian Coates helped the Primeira Liga team avoid a loss in the first leg. Nonetheless, Sporting are a stronger team than Midtjylland, and as the Danes have not yet resumed play in the national championship, an away win should be taken into account.
Speaking of the away team, Essugo and Morita are both considered to be serious doubts, and midfielder Daniel Braganca is still in the medical room. The visiting team’s line leader is likely to be Paulinho.
Specifically the captain Coates, who seized the equalizer in the first match, will be filling in the defense. Both the highly effective midfielder Pedro Gonçalves (10 goals and 5 assists in the league) and the English winger Edwards are in attendance, which is very good news for the visiting team.
