(Matheus Pereira 12', 17', Bruno Paulista 40', Gelson Martins 75')
We start defending our Cup title against a 4th tier side in neutral ground, as they chose to play at Estoril in order to get more money.
JJ will rest most of the starters (Jefferson, Naldo, João Mário, Adrien, Gelson, Teo Gutiérrez and Slimani) and will field two players that have been regulars in our B side (Bruno Paulista - first match as a starter in the first team - and Matheus Pereira). Rui Patrício and Bryan Ruiz are injured and Ewerton and Paulo Oliveira are both back from injuries.
Here's the starting line-up:
22 Marcelo Boeck
21 João Pereira - 26 Paulo Oliveira - 5 Ewerton - 3 Jonathan Silva
14 William Carvalho
30 Bruno Paulista - 6 Aquilani
36 Carlos Mané - 10 Montero - 73 Matheus Pereira
26 Azbe Jug, 47 Ricardo Esgaio, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 28 André Martins, 27 Ryan Gauld, 60 Gelson Martins and 8 Tanaka.
