Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Famalicao and Arouca face each other at Estadio Municipal de Famalicao in the Primeira Liga round 6 curtain-raiser. The hosts have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Sporting CP, beating Farense, while sharing the spoils with Rio Ave. Theo Fonseca continues to miss out with an ACL injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Arouca, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run in the Portuguese top flight. Considering that Famalicao are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Daniel Ramos’ men are going to return to Aveiro empty-handed. As for the visiting side, forward Benji Michel continues to miss out with an ACL problem. In their last meeting at the venue Arouca defeated Famalicao 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
