underdogs of the quartet.
Portugal (the head coach Rui Vitória)
the beginning of new season the hosts of Estádio da Luz had won four
matches out of five and now are taking the second place with 13
points next to Sporting (15 points). The team of Rui Vitória is
using classical scheme 4-4-2 with the following squad:
– Almeida, Luizão, Jardel Lopez, Eliseu – Salvio (Živković),
Pizzi, Augusto (Fejsa), Cervi – Jonas, Seferović.
best forward – Brazilian forward Jonas (5 matches, 6 goals).
Moscow (the head coach Viktar Hancharenka)
Friday Benfica and CSKA had gained new victories in their national
Leagues. But if the victory of Portuguese grandee over Portimonense

consider the team of Rui Vitória to be the bright favorite of the
forthcoming battle. And here, bearing in mind absolutely different
game level of the opponents it is hard to find any serious
that is why, it is necessary to admit that the team of Viktar
Hancharenka has no chances to gain positive result in the first away
meeting against Portuguese grandee in Lisbon.
