Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Following a hard-fought 2-1 win over Rio Ave, Porto will be aiming to keep their 100% record intact when they host Arouca to their Estadio do Dragao on Sunday. The Dragons are determined to regain the trophy, but they must improve offensively if they are to turn the dream into reality. All Romario Baro, Evanilson, and Gabriel Veron are out of contention with injuries, while midfielder Andre Franco could sneak into the starting XI after impressing as a substitute in the last league match.
Arouca, on the other hand, kicked off the new Primeira Liga season with a 4-3 win over Estoril, but they head into Sunday’s clash following back-to-back draws against Vizela (2-2) and Portimonense (1-1). Given Arouca’s attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Forward Benji Michel should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Toni Martinez):
Born in Barrio del Progreso, Spain, on June 30, 1997, Toni Martinez is a forward who plays for Primeira Liga side Famalicao. Martinez is a product of Real Murcia football school, but in 2013 he moved to Valencia youth academy.
After scoring two goals in 16 appearances for Valencia B, the Spaniard signed a deal with West Ham United in April 2016 for a fee of around £2.4 million. However, he did not see any game action in the Premier League with the Hammers as he was immediately sent on loan to Oxford United.
Toni Martinez played for the likes of Real Valladolid, Rayo Majadahonda, and Lugo on loan as well before signing a three-year deal with Famalicao in the summer of 2019. He made his debut with the Azuis e Brancos on August 3, 2019, in a 2-0 home defeat to Covilha in the Taca da Portugal. Toni Martinez has two caps with the Spain U19 team.
