Defending champions last season, Porto missed out on retaining their crown by just two points, finishing as runners-up to Benfica. But they have got their quest for a 31st Primeira Liga title off to the best possible start. After three games, Porto are still perfect in the league, bouncing back from their Portuguese Super Cup defeat to Benfica. The Dragons have so far beaten Moreirense, Farense and Rio Ave and will be hoping to make it four wins from four ahead of the international break.

But they face an Arouca side still unbeaten in the league, despite woes elsewhere. Arouca finished fifth in the league last season and qualified for the third qualifying round of the Europa Conference League but lost over two legs to Brann. After winning the first leg, Arouca also claimed a victory in the league, opening with a 4-3 win over Estoril Praia. However, the second-leg defeat halted their momentum with Arouca drawing their past two matches against Vizela and Portimonense.

Porto vs Arouca match tip

A red card to be shown

Arouca’s three league games this season have been a bit tasty when it comes to cards. In the opening win over Estoril, there were six yellow cards and one red, while the 2-2 draw with Vizela brought 12 yellows and two reds. Things did calm down slightly last time out with just three yellow cards, but who knows what will happen next.

Porto to win, Rafa Mujica to score anytime & BTTS

Porto have a fantastic record against Arouca that they will be looking to extend this weekend, winning 12 of their 13 games across all competitions. However, they are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and Arouca have a few goal threats including Rafa Mujica who has two goals from four shots on target.

Matias Rocha is available for Arouca once again having missed last week’s draw with Portimonense through suspension. However, Weverson had to come off in that game due to injury and doesn’t look likely to make it back in time for this match, joining Vitinho on the sidelines.
