Player to watch: Cristo Gonzalez

This will be the third encounter between these teams in the last six months, and Cristo Gonzalez scored in their previous two encounters. The former Udinese forward scored the first two goals as Arouca cruised through a comfortable 4-0 victory over Boavista in the reverse fixture.

Furthermore, Gonzalez has been in sensational form for the hosts these past few months, with 12 direct goal involvements (6 goals, 6 assists) in his last 11 matches. He'll fancy his chances of scoring once more against an out-of-form Boavista.
