Arouca to Win

Arouca landed what could prove a decisive blow in the battle to beat the drop this term with an unexpected 3-1 win at Vitoria Guimaraes last weekend and the surge of confidence created by that result could set them up for more success against Moreirense. The visitors have been toppled in four of their last five Primeira Liga assignments and we recommend siding with a more buoyant Arouca as a result.

Both Teams to Score

As two of the division’s prime relegation candidates, clean sheets have been few and far between for both Arouca and Moreirense this season. In fact, the strugglers have kept just three each in 23 fixtures respectively since August. Neither defence can ever be relied upon to remain solid for 90 minutes, so back both to concede again on Saturday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Arouca’s fixtures at the Estádio Municipal have been high on excitement this season with 64% of their league matches on home soil producing over 2.5 goals. The host’s defensive issues are one of the factors behind that high-scoring trend, though we could also be treated to plenty of action at the other end on Saturday when a Moreirense outfit that conceded five times in their last away test come to town.

Arouca vs Moreirense: Match Preview and Team News

Arouca

Arouca’s triumph at high-flying Vitoria Guimaraes last weekend was one of the surprise results of the campaign so far in Portugal and the impressive win allowed the Arouquenses to jump from second bottom up to the relative safety of 15th position. Arouca have now lost just two of their last five top-flight matches, though coach Armando Evangelista will realise that standards cannot drop from here on in if survival is to be achieved.

Moreirense

Following their 5-0 drubbing at Famalicao, Moreirense showed some fight in their next game against league-leading Porto, though their efforts ultimately ended in another defeat (1-0). Sá Pinto’s charges have slipped to second last place in the standings following their dismal run of four defeats in five matches and with his team averaging less than a goal per 90 minutes, it’s difficult to see how Os verdes e brancos can turn things around.
