Inconsistent since the start of the Portuguese Liga NOS season, Arouca will be looking to get all three points against a relatively weaker Estoril side when they former host the later at the Estadio Municipal de Arouca in the 17th round of the Portuguese top flight.
The hosts have been in solid condition since the start of the season, however the team have failed to string the wins together in the past few weeks. Arouca have won three games in their last 5 league fixtures with each two wins are separated by a loss. Arouca have collected 9 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Tondela away from home where they won 2-1.
Arouca are sitting in 10th place in the Liga NOS table with 20 points from 6 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 15 goals and conceded 20 since the start of the season.
There is no real reason for Vidigal to change his XI after a good showing in Tondela last time out.
The visitors are only 5 points behind the hosts in the league table, but they are in a much worse situation than what just 5 points can resemble. The team have failed to add any points to their tally in the last 5 league games. They have collected only one point from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against CS Maritimo at home where they lost 1-0.
Estoril are sitting in the 14th place in the league table with 15 points from 4 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 11 goals and conceded 19 since the start of the campaign.
Indio should return to the wing with one of Bazelyuk or Gomes starting up top. Diakhite and Dankler partnered up at the back for the first time since João Afonso’s arrival to the club and they could continue in defence.
