Arouca to Win

Both Arouca and Estoril enter this fixture after being dumped out of the Portuguese League Cup by their fellow Primeira Liga outfits. The defeats in the first round would be swatted aside as they look to ensure survival in the top-flight. The odds are in favour of Arouca, who have the upper hand in their last four meetings. The Arouquenses have won twice and lost once in this period and will be boosted by their favourable form against them.

Under 2.5 Goals

Arouca has scored three goals in their two competitive outings this season, one more than Estoril after the same amount of games. However, their respective last outings saw them shut out. As they come together in their Primeira Liga season openers, we expect a low scoring affair where advantage secured is kept close.

Correct Score: 1-0 Arouca

A 1-0 scoreline was read against both Arouca and Estoril in their defeats to Rio Ave and Famalicao. Interestingly, this was the same result that they have registered against each other in their last two H2H duels. With the fixture at the home of Arouca, we favour a repeat in favour of them.

Arouca vs Estoril Fixture Preview

FC Arouca

The Arouquenses will feel fortunate to be in the Portuguese top-flight after their play-off win. Manager Armando Evangelista will be well aware that the hard part of his job starts now as surviving in the top-flight is no mean task. It will be a trial by combat of the squad, especially the attacking lineup. In Adilio, Or Dasa and Andre Bukia, they have three strikers not known for their proficiency in front of the goal as they prepare for the test amongst the best.

GD Estoril Praia

While Arouca had to fight their way to the Primeira Liga, Bruno Pinheiro’s Estoril romped to it as Liga Portugal 2 champions. It was the exceptional backline that allowed them to achieve promotion and the club has done a remarkable job in retaining the likes of Africao Lucas and Vital Bernardo. Like Arouca, they are haunted by their vast assortment of forwards and whether they can be relied upon to hit the back of the net regularly.
