Arouca preview: Hoping to avoid another loss against Braga

While Arouca have done well this season as they sit in the seventh place in the standings, they are far behind the teams fighting for European football. Still, with five wins in the last eight games and a spot in the top half of the table, Arouca's fans can be pleased with the season overall, but a good result against their bogey team would be a cherry on top.

Another positive for Arouca is their clean bill of health, but Alfonso Trezza will miss this match through suspension.

Predicted LineupArruabarrena – Esgaio, Montero, Galovic, Weverson – Simao, Santos – Jason, Gonzales, Sylla – Mujica

Player to watch: Simon Banza

The experienced forward from Congo is having one of the best season's of his career as he managed to score 21 goals in Primeira Liga so far, just one goal fewer than the league leader Viktor Gyokeres.

Second-half merchant?

Only three of 21 goals that Banza scored in the league this season have been scored in the first halves of matches. So, betting on Banza to score first might not be the safest of bets, despite his prolific overall record so far.
