Andre Almeida the normal starting right back is recovery from an extended lay off due to an ankle injury and has not appeared in a game since the beginning of  February. Almeida is currently a step behind his teammates in pace during training sessions and Lage looks ready to name youngster Tomas Tavares as he clubs right back for next weeks restart game. Almeida has battled injuries all season having appeared in only 17 of the clubs games across all competitions this season while Tavares has appeared in 25. Lage hopes that Almeida will be up to speed as the training sessions continue and hope to have the vice-captain back in his regular spot after a couple of game into the restart.
