Indications on whether there will be room for the match between Estoril and Porto, on Saturday, in Amorera, are still less encouraging, and talks between the institutions continue.
Despite the fact that the Estorist administration has activated all precautions and emergency plans so that the Covid-19 outbreak does not spread through the structure, the number of infected people increased again after a new set of tests.
Estoril now has over thirty injured pros, including items linked to the under-23 chassis, which means, as A BOLA knows, there are very few players available at the moment.
This Tuesday, the number of athletes who have tested negative and are therefore available to face FC Porto does not exceed ten and a half, which represents a huge risk of not respecting the regulation.
With the team on the brink of failing to secure a minimum number of 13 athletes (12 field players and one goalkeeper), Estoril decided to go ahead with an official application for progression, which had already been submitted to the league and also to FC Porto.
Thus, since there must be an understanding between the clubs, it is up to the Dragon to decide whether or not the match will be postponed, and if so, when.
