Chico Conceição, Folha and Gonçalo Ribeiro on the B list. All reinforcements were registered.
The extension of the FC Porto squad (30 players) forced Sérgio Conceição to make some cuts in the preparation of the list to be delivered to UEFA by yesterday and the choice ended up falling on Samuel Portugal, Francisco Meixedo and Gabriel Veron. The Brazilian’s absence can be justified by the fact that he is injured and the recovery period still takes at least another month. The two goalkeepers were passed over due to the inclusion of Gonçalo Ribeiro in the B list, which will allow the coach to always have three elements available to occupy the position if necessary, although the young Portuguese international should be an option, essentially, in the Youth League .
So that 27 of the 30 elements of the main squad can be an option in the Champions League, FC Porto included the names of Francisco Conceição and Bernardo in the B list, intended for athletes who were born from January 1, 2002 onwards. Diogo Costa, João Mário, Romário Baró and Gonçalo Borges filled the quota for athletes trained in the club, while the remaining 21 were included in two categories: athletes trained and not trained in the local association.
