Arouca to Win

Reason for tip

Arouca built last season’s stellar record on their home form, winning 10 of their 14 games against sides from fourth down. Estoril didn’t finish far above the drop zone and they lost 11 of 17 trips, so back them for a defeat at Arouca.

Arouca vs Estoril Predictions

  • Arouca finished fifth last term, winning 10 of 14 home games against sides fourth and below
  • The visitors lost 11 of their 17 away trips last term
  • Arouca have won five of their last six home games, starting this campaign with two wins from two

What next for Arouca?

Arouca had an incredible season last year, finishing only behind Portugal’s Big Three and Braga to secure a European place. Their fifth-place finish saw them rack up 54 points, which they did by exploiting the sides behind them.

While Arouca lost heavy to all of the top three, their form outside of that was incredibly consistent, especially at home. They won 10 of 14 home games outside of the top three teams.

While the summer has brought changes on the pitch and in the dugout, they’ll hope they can start the league campaign with a victory having won two from two so far in the cup and Europa Conference League.

Arouca can secure victory

The hosts have lost coach Armando Evangelista, but new boss Daniel Ramos has worked his way up over the course of a two-decade managerial career. He can make his mark with an Arouca side who moved quickly to replace their summer departures, while they’re boosted by a good opening fixture.

Estoril finished 14th in the Primeira Liga last term, losing 11 of their 17 away trips. That includes losses to each of the top six, while they scored just 0.76 goals per trip. With Arouca winning five of their last six at home, back them for the points.
