- Rui Silva
- Youssouf Sabaly
- Luiz Felipe
- German Pezzella
- Alex Moreno
- Guido Rodriguez
- William Carvalho
- Luiz Henrique
- Sergio Canales
- Borja Iglesias
Luiz Henrique is the key player to watch out for. He dropped a very good game in the previous meeting against Roma, even though he came off the bench. Henrique was involved in the two goals scored, with a goal and an assist. He should be able to get a starting spot in this fixture.
