Arouca v Braga Match preview
The home side have been struggling in the league of late and had to settle for a draw against Portimonense at home a couple of weeks back. Armando Evangelista’s men were on a four-game unbeaten run which was ended by Santa Clara prior to their latest outing. They’re now outside the top half of the table and are precariously close to the relegation zone.
Carlos Carvalhal’s side were dumped out of the Taca de Portugal by Vizela last time out. They’ve now lost four of their last five games in all competitions. Os Arcebispos are in fourth place in the league standings at present but trail league leaders Porto and Sporting by 13 points.
