The club does not have a good time, with only one win in the last five games, and now comes from three consecutive defeats, the last of which was precisely against Sporting in the first leg of the Europa League 16-game final, where it left much to be desired and was unable to take advantage of the field goal, letting the Portuguese score three goals, which almost sealed Sporting’s classification.

Several tactical schemes have been tested by the coach, who will not have at his disposal the defender Logvinenko, due to suspension.
