Leixões will receive FC Porto on Tuesday in the quarter-finals of the Portuguese Cup, at 19:30, at the Estádio do Mar in Matosinhos. Leixões, currently ranked 11th in the second league, comes from a home triumph against Penafiel by two balls to one. FC Porto, leaders of the first league, have just drawn to zero in the stronghold of Sporting. To reach this point, Leixões had to overcome four qualifiers, having eliminated Leça (3-0), Amarante (3-1), Anadia (1-0) and Tondela (3-2), while FC Porto only had to knock out three opponents: Vila Real (0-6), Belenenses (2-0) and Moreirense (4-3). It is worth noting that Sérgio Conceição will not be able to count for this match with the injured Danilo and Maxi Pereira, and also the Algerian Brahimi in doubt. The most recent meeting between the two formations took place in late October 2017, with Leixões getting out of Estádio do Dragão with a draw to zero in the League Cup game. Will Matosinhos’s team be able to catch the dragon again?
