Counting down to the Alvalade classic, the FC Porto squad held this Thursday another training session at Olival, a session that featured two heavyweight ‘reinforcements’ for Sérgio Conceição.
Pepe and Sérgio Oliveira returned to integrate the works after being called by Fernando Santos for the commitments of the National Team, now placing themselves at the disposal of the Porto technician.
Absent remain Zaidu (Nigeria), Loum (Senegal) and Medhi Taremi (Iran), in transit after having also been called up for the respective teams.
The clinical record remains unchanged, with Marchesín (gym and treatment), Mouhamed Mbaye (treatment) and Marcano (treatment and gym) out to recover from their injuries.
For tomorrow, Friday, a new training was scheduled from 10.30 hours, again at Olival, the last rehearsal before the clash with Sporting, on Saturday (20.30 hours). At the end of the season, Sérgio Conceição goes to the press room to preview the classic, head game of the 4th round of the League.
