Primeira Liga table-toppers FC Porto host Sporting Braga in a crucial encounter that could rearrange the appearance of the top half of the table.

A win for FC Porto will keep them at the top of the table. However, if the Portuguese giants fail to beat Braga, and Sporting wins the Lisbon derby, the latter will ascend to the top of the Primeira Liga. Bearing in mind the costly consequences of losing this crucial fixture, Porto will most likely go all out looking for a win.

Team news 

Meanwhile, Porto president Pinto da Costa has insisted that Ruben Neves is not for sale, despite gaining interest from top English clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool. The highly-rated midfielder has been compared by his Barcelona counterpart Sergio Busquets on several occasions. Pinto da Costa has previously confessed that he would want to see the 18-year-old Portuguese spending his entire career at Porto, just like former Portugal defender Joao Pinto.
