Tondela have suffered the biggest defeat of 2022 at the hands of Porto, but an opponent like Arouca are unlikely to threaten the home team to a huge extent. After the managerial change that resulted in the arrival of Nuno Campos, Tondela will be lifted to a certain extent. Arouca have only picked up two wins so far in away matches this season.

Total goals under 2.5

There have been over 2.5 goals in two out of the last three matches for Arouca and Tondela. However, both teams might end up going through a difficult game where there is a limited supply of goals. In the last six matches, both teams have averaged less than a goal per game. Only the opposition have been scoring a lot of goals past Tondela and Arouca in recent weeks.

Both teams to score – yes

It would not be a huge surprise if Tondela came up with a much better performance than in the big loss at the hands of Porto. Arouca have been surprisingly decent in away matches with goals in three out of the last five.
