The hosts will be looking to make it three wins in a row after having secured a comeback 2-1 win at Portimonense last week. They travel to the Netherlands in the second leg fixture of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday, so might rest their first-team players here.
Vizela's winless run in the competition was extended to five games as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Santa Clara in their previous league outing.

This will be just the fourth meeting between the two sides across all competitions. The Lisbon giants have a 100% record against their northern rivals, who have just one goal in three games in this fixture.
The reverse fixture at Estadio do Vizela in October was the first league meeting between the two rivals. Rafa Silva scored the only goal of the game in the eighth minute of injury time to seal the three points for As Águias.
