📋 Team News: Arouca

The Arouca boss Daniel Sousa does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free group available to select from.

We think that Arouca should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system for this game with I. De Arruabarrena, Tiago Esgaio, Robson Bambu, Francisco Montero, Weverson, Pedro Santos, David Simao, Alfonso Trezza, Jason, Morlaye Sylla and Cristo Gonzalez.

ℹ️ Team News: Vitória Guimarães

Vitória Guimarães manager Álvaro Pacheco has multiple availability issues to deal with. Telmo Arcanjo (Cruciate ligament tear) and João Mendes (Broken ankle) will not be playing here.

There’s a good chance that Os Vimaranenses seem likely to utilise a 3-5-2 system using Bruno Varela, Tomas Ribeiro, Toni Borevkovic, Manu Silva, Maga, Tiago Silva, Andre Andre, Nuno Santos, Afonso Freitas, Kaio and Jota Silva.

🔮 Prediction

In our view, Vitória Guimarães and Arouca could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.

There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. That’s why we have predicted a hard-fought 1-1 score draw after 90 minutes.
