Mamadou Cande (Guinea-Bissau) - chunky home left wing-back, goes forward readily, left foot delivery, often involved.
Mama Samba Balde (Guinea-Bissau) - Aves tall midfielder, ranged across the middle, some pacy driving surges forward, had a chance in the first half, less active in the second period, subbed on 83 minutes.
Carlos Ponk (Cape Verde) - right centre back for the visitors, solid, some sharp interceptions, did get a yellow card for reaction.
The nearest either side got to breaking the deadlock was a first-half Santa Clara header that clipped the post.
Brazilian Bruno Lamas was the standout threat for the home side with his left foot deliveries.
Aves produced a few half chances but otherwise would be happy with a point from their visit to the Azores.
Much to the home crowd's annoyance, the match eventually fizzled out into a goalless stalemate.
