Arouca vs. Chaves (Primeira Liga)
Arouca aims to secure consecutive victories in all competitions as they host struggling Chaves at Estadio Municipal de Arouca in the Primeira Liga on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts commenced their group-stage campaign in the League Cup with a win during the week, while Chaves had a full week to reflect on a draw in the league last week, which marked their first point of the season.
Arouca, like the top teams in the Primeira Liga, has had a hectic start to the 2023-24 campaign. On Tuesday night, they faced a League Cup showdown against second-tier side AVS Futebol SAD.
Arouca vs. Chaves
Daniel Ramos’s team managed to take the lead in the 19th minute, courtesy of a goal from Jason. However, they were later equalized by Carlos Daniel.
Nevertheless, a second-half goal from Cristo Gonzalez secured a victory for the visitors, placing them at the top of their group, which notably includes Benfica, who are yet to play.
What to remember – Arouca vs. Chaves
Arouca recently put an end to their worrisome winless streak in the League Cup, and as a team that finished fifth last season, they likely have the confidence to secure another victory against bottom-ranked Chaves this Sunday.
Chaves managed to salvage a last-minute draw at home against a newly-promoted side in their previous match, but it might be a challenging task for them to replicate that outcome in Arouca this weekend.
