In the second round in group B of Portugal League Cup, Estoril host Gil Vicente.
In the first round Estoril shared points at home against Maritimo 1-1, while Gil Vicente lost in the match against Covilha, the team from the Segunda.
Estoril play very solid this season in Portuguese Liga and they are standing at the middle of the table. They played in the group phase of Europa League this season, but they failed to qualify in the next round.
The big blow for home side is the absence one of their best players this season and top scorer Kuca (15/5 f) who left the club and joined Karabükspor.
Filipe Gonçalves (9/0 m), Babanco (11/0 m), Balboa (6/0 f) and Arthuro (7/0 f) are also out.
The visitors are very poor this season. Gil Vicente stand at the bottom of the table and they are one of the main candidates to relegate, so I believe this competition is not very important for them.
They have one of the worst attack and defences in Portuguese Liga.
Gil Vicente also have some problems with the absences.
The first goalkeeper Adriano Facchini (16/0 gk), Enza-Yamissi (14/0 d), Evaldo (12/1 d), Jander (12/0 m), Joao Vilela (11/1 m), Diogo Viana (16/0 f), Caetano (14/1 f) and their top scorer Nwankwo (12/4 f) are all out.
Without any doubt, Estoril is better team and I expect their easy win tonight.
