Marcel Keizer announced his roster for the match on Saturday night up north at C.D. Aves (20:30, Sport TV 2).
He confirmed Acuña is ready to travel with the team and play, while Bas Dost and Borja will not make the trip, as they need more time to recuperate and not risk any injuries.
Sporting find themselves eight points behind first place and will play an Aves team in a relegation battle during these upcoming last six weeks.
“It’s a different match, they are still battling to stay up. We have to treat this match with great carefulness, because they are a dangerous club.” – Keizer
