Estoril - Arouca
Estoril - position 7, points 25, GD 24:22; 6-7-5
Arouca - position 17, points 14, GD 17:35; 3-5-10
Estoril have failed to win seven of their eight home Primeira Liga games this season (Five draws).
Arouca have avoided defeat in three of their last five away games (Three draws). Both Andre Silva and Oday Dabbagh missed last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Benfica – that made it three home defeats on the trot – through suspension. The sharpshooters were missed as Arouca, despite being major underdogs to get anything from the game, gave the Lisbon giants a hard time and should have drawn level from the penalty spot. The Arouquenses can take heart from that spirited display when they head to Estádio António Coimbra da Mota to face an Estoril side sitting seventh in the table. But any aspirations to bring European football to the ground next season have been tempered by a shocking run of results that have seen Arouca earn one point from the last 12 on offer.Arouca’s two leading strikers Andre Silva and Oday Dabbagh are back from suspension for this.
