Sixth seed Sousa and wild card Machado are two of three Portuguese looking to win on home soil in Oeiras. Gastao Elias was also granted a wild card.
Sousa, who became the first man from Portugal to win a tour-level title in Kuala Lumpur last year, opens his quest against a qualifier. Machado faces fifth-seed Dmitry Tursunov. Both players' best results in Oeiras have been quarter-final finishes, with Sousa advancing as far in 2012 (l. to Ramos) and Machado in 2010 (l. to Gil).
