Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
Vitoria Guimaraes will be looking to retain top position in Group B when they welcome Sporting Covilha at their Estadio do Bonfim on Saturday evening. Os Vimaranenses have been impressive at home ground in the Primeira Liga this season, and it is no surprise they are seen as favourites to win their third group game. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be England rising star Marcus Edwards, who found the net in a 2-2 draw with Gil Vicente at the weekend.
As for the away side, Sporting Covilha are on a six-game winless run in Segunda Liga. The visitors did well to hold Benfica to a 1-1 draw in their last group game in Taca da Liga, but we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Guimaraes’ party at Estadio do Bonfim.
