Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio Municipal de Arouca will host Friday’s football game between Arouca and Tondela. The newcomers have recorded no more than one win in the 2021/2022 Primeira Liga campaign, and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Tondela. Ghana international Yaw remains in the recovery room, while Velazquez is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the match.
The Yellow-Grees, on the other hand, failed to upset title-chasing Porto in their last league match, and, to make things even worse for boss Pako Ayestaran, midfielder Iker Undabarrena was sent off after 27 minutes. The 26-year-old misses the Arouca game through suspension, while Goncalves remains in the recovery room. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Estadio Municipal de Arouca, and we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 10.
