Arouca Mafra betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

This match opposes two teams that are not going through a particularly good moment in the championship, but have squads with a lot of quality. Arouca must assume the expenses of the match and have the best goal opportunities, taking advantage of the defensive weaknesses of the visiting team. On the other hand, Filipe Cândido's team must play with a medium/low block, in order to ensure the attacks of the home team and try to counterattack or set plays to open the scoreboard. Having said that and taking into account the last matches between these two teams, we would bet on "both score".
