You can pick your own Arouca vs Pacos Ferreira prediction, or you can read below our 3 free betting tips and choose one of them.

Arouca to Win

We think that the hosts have enough to triumph in this Arouca – Pacos Ferreira clash. Arouca achieved 7 of their 10 league wins at home. They sit only 3 points outside the top 5 and are buzzing at the prospects of qualifying for Europe for the first time in the club’s history. Arouca also enter this match on the back of 3 wins in just the last 5 rounds. At the same time, Pacos are in the bottom 2 for a reason with their away record so far nothing more than dismal – (W2 D1 L8).

Under 2.5 Goals

Arouca are so high in the standings because of their solid defence. Our second Arouca vs Pacos Ferreira prediction is for the game to have fewer than 3 total goals scored. This has happened in all of Arouca’s last 6 league matches. Also, 4 of the last 5 H2H clashes between the sides went under 2.5 goals.

BTTS – No

In a somewhat logical continuation from the previous betting tip, we also think that not both teams will be able to score in this match. All of Arouca’s last 5 games went without both teams scoring. Arouca also enjoy a run of 3 clean sheets at home in their last 4 matches. Add to that the fact that Pacos have scored just 9 goals in 11 away matches so far and a braver punter could even consider a bet on Arouca keeping a clean sheet.

Arouca vs Pacos Ferreira Lineups, Team News and Analysis

Arouca

Arouca achieved a decisive 2-0 away win against Vitoria Guimaraes last weekend. The players were excellent both in defence and going forward. The result moved Arouca just 3 points exactly behind Vitoria and resurrected the team’s top 5 ambitions.

The only defeat in the last 6 rounds was against high-flyers Braga. At home, Arouca won 3 of their last 4 league matches, with the only home defeat in that stretch against the runaway leader Benfica.

Continue to be missing 3 players through injuries. The most serious absentee is the regular right-back Opoku. However, the defensive stability has remained great even while he has been out.

Pacos Ferreira

Pacos moved away from the last position with a scrappy 1-0 home win against the team that replaced them there Santa Clara. The performance was very nervy but still, the win gives a glimmer of hope.

However, with only 15 points after 24 games and sitting 11 points adrift from safety Pacos can only hope to avoid direct relegation and fight for a place in the survival play-off. All season the displays had been shaky and especially going forward Pacos have looked pretty toothless.

The manager is likely to consider keeping the starting lineup unchanged for this one. He has no fresh injury issues. In fact, Pacos are at full strength right now with no first-team players missing. In attack continue to rely heavily on the Spanish striker Butzke, who is the team’s top scorer this season with his 5 goals.
