With 24 players working on the pitch – among which the summer signings Chiquinho, Caio Lucas, Cádiz, and Raul de Tomas – Bruno Lage, on the other hand, could not count on Jonas, André Almeida (recovering from a stress fracture of the right tibia) and Gedson (recovering from a fracture of the right foot).
Among the internationals – Pizzi, Rúben Dias, Rafa, Fejsa, Seferovic, Samaris and Odysseas – only Zivkovic is missing and he will only arrive on July 14 because he represented Serbia in the U-21 European Championship.
