We said: Arouca 2-1 Rio Ave

Both teams will head into the weekend with a degree of confidence and the need for a result against a relegation rival, and we anticipate a tight contest. The appointment of Daniel Sousa clearly had a positive effect on Arouca as they dished out a 4-0 beating in their first game under the new boss last weekend, and we fancy them to make it two in a row and come out on top on home turf.
