After a 1-1 draw with Maritimo postage will try to get back to winning ways immediately if welcome Arouca on Saturday at the Estadio do Dragao.

The guests won their first win of the season in a 2-1 win against Famalicao at home and want to build on this performance.


Prediction for this match

Porto were denied a third win last Sunday in a 1-1 draw against a strong Maritimo team in Funchal.

The hosts showed a defensive class in the second half to deny Porto all three points Bruno Xadas canceled Luis Diaz‘s start after half time.

Before, Sergio Conceicaos team took two wins in the first two games of the season, defeating Belenenses and Famalicao and scoring two goals in both duels.

The Dragoes have avoided losing in their last 15 games across competitions, following a 2-0 loss to Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals in April.

After seven wins from the last eight encounters, Porto will be confident of beating Arouca, who had an unconvincing start to the season.

Saturday’s guests took their first win since returning to the Portuguese top division when they beat Famalicao 2-1 at the Estadio Municipal de Arouca last Friday.

After falling back to Bruno Rodrigues‘s opening game in the 23rd minute, Arouca increased the stake in the second half, forcing an impressive comeback with goals from the defender João Basso and Portuguese midfielder Leandro Silva.

Previously, the Arouquenses lost each of their last three games in all competitions, including a 1-0 loss to Rio Ave that sentenced them to a Taca da Liga second-round qualification.

Despite victory on Friday, head coach Armando Evangelista will worry about his failed strikers who haven’t found goals on the net in any of their last four games.

However, after closing the 2020-21 season with 11 straight wins, 24 goals and eight goals conceded to end his four-year absence from the Primeira Liga, Arouca will be optimistic about improving the table in the coming weeks.

Porto will go back to the pitch without the services of the former Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujicwho suffered a muscle injury in a friendly against Lyon in May.

Argentine goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin will go under the knife after a meniscus injury, ie Diogo Costa starts on Saturday between the sticks.

After their solid defense last time, we expect Conceicao to name an unchanged back four with full-back Ivan Marcano in line for its second consecutive debut.

The Arouquenses are expected to face a similar foursome defense Mateus Quaresma, João Basso, Sema Velazquez and Thales shielding Fernando Castro between the sticks.

Goalkeeper first choice Victor Braga will be serving the second of his three games suspension after receiving a red card within the first 10 minutes of Arouca’s game against Benfica.

Probability: Porto 3-0 Arouca

Fresh from the campaign’s first win, Arouca will go into the game with a positive feeling. While they’ll try to cause a surprise, we’re giving Porto a tip for a comfortable win as they have a much stronger and more experienced squad.

Given Arouca’s difficulties in front of goal, we also expect the hosts to go away without conceding.
