Arouca vs Porto team news

Arouca

Arouca put in a good performance away at Portimonense and came away with all three points. The first forty-five ended goalless but Rafa Mújica fired Arouca in front three minutes after the restart. Matias Rocha doubled the away side's advantage in the fifty-second minute and although Portimonense pulled a goal back late on, Arouca held on to win the match 2-1.

Tiago Esgaio picked up an injury during the Portimonese win and looks set to miss the Porto game on Monday night.

Predicted Lineup: de Arruabarrena (GK), Milovanov, Bambu, Weverson, Rocha, Simão, Jason, Sylla, Santos, González & Mújica

Porto

Porto were expected to win at home to Rio Ave last time out but the hosts failed to take any of their chances and had to settle for a point. Rio Ave had striker Emmanuel Boateng sent off in stoppage time but there wasn't enough time remaining for Porto to take advantage.

Ivan Marcano and Gabriel Veron are expected to miss out on Monday due to injury with Marcano possibly out for the rest of the season.

Predicted Lineup: Costa (GK), Pepe, Wendell, Cardoso, Mário, González, Varela, Galeno, Aquino, Evanilson & Conceição

Player to Watch: Evanilson

Brazilian striker Evanilson has been Porto's best player so far this season netting eight goals in the Primeira Liga alone.

Evanilson has struggled to nail down a first-team position since moving to Porto from Fluminense in 2020 for one reason or another but the 24-year-old has performed really well this season and looks like he could better his goals total from the 2021/22 campaign in which he scored fourteen league goals.

We're backing Evanilson to put in another top performance for Porto on Monday night which should help guide the Portuguese giants to another three points.
