In their last game, Arouca drew 0-0 in the Primeira Liga tie with Estrela Amadora.

In that game, Arouca managed 71% possession and 23 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. At the other end, Estrela Amadora had 6 attempts on goal with 1 on target.

In the course of their 6 latest matches, Daniel Sousa's Arouca have fired home 10 times, giving them a goals scored per game average of 1.67.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Arouca:

  • are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

An examination of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 10/02/2017 shows that these fixtures have been miserable for Arouca. They have not been able to register any wins whatsoever while Benfica have remained in the ascendancy, winning in 100% of those games where they have faced each other.

17 goals were scored between them in this period, with 17 of them from Benfica and 0 created by Arouca. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.83.

The previous league encounter featuring the two was Primeira Liga match day 16 on 06/01/2024 when it ended Arouca 0-3 Benfica.

On that day, Arouca had 52% possession and 11 shots at goal with 1 on target.

Benfica had 11 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Rafa Silva (39'), Orkun Kökçü (48') and Petar Musa (85') scored.

The match was refereed by Fábio Veríssimo.

🗞️ Team News: Benfica

Alexander Bah (Muscle injury) and Tomás Araújo (Ankle injury) are unavailable for Benfica gaffer Roger Schmidt.

We are thinking that Benfica may well opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one featuring Anatolii Trubin, Fredrik Aursnes, Antonio Silva, Nicolas Otamendi, Alvaro Carreras, Joao Neves, Florentino Luis, Tiago Gouveia, Rafa Silva, Angel Di Maria and Arthur Cabral.

ℹ️ Team News: Arouca

Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the Arouca manager Daniel Sousa doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.

From our viewpoint, Arouca might play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with I. De Arruabarrena, Bogdan Milovanov, Matias Rocha, Francisco Montero, Quaresma, Oriol Busquets, David Simao, Alfonso Trezza, Jason, Morlaye Sylla and Cristo Gonzalez.

⚡ Prediction

Arouca have it in them to score a goal against this Benfica outfit, but that probably shouldn’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.

We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Benfica when all is said and done. Should be a good one.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
