Nacional and Arouca meet at Estádio da Madeira, in a match for the 15th round of the Primeira Liga. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 5 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 08‑02‑2015, and ended in a draw by (3‑3). In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Nacional

After 4 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses, the home team is in the 13th position, havinf won 15 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Moreirense by (2‑0), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑2) at home, against Porto. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 30 goals scored and 8 conceded. They come to this match after a away loss against Benfica by (1‑0). For the league, Nacional won 11 points out of 18 possible points, after 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 6 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 7 of their 14 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Nacional come discouraged to this match after 5 consecutive matches without winning. So, it's foreseen that the team led by Manuel Machado will play in an offensive way to turn back to the victories' path. Nacional show great quality in the defense-attack transition. Willyam is a very faster and technically skilled player.
To this match, Salvador Agra and João Aurélio are in doubt by physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: Rui Silva, João Aurélio, Zainadine Junior, Rui Correia, Sequeira, Edgar Abreu, Ali Ghazal, Nenê Bonilha, Salvador Agra, Tiquinho, Willyan.
Coach: Manuel Machado.

Analysis of Arouca

The away team is currently in the 8th position of the league, with 19 points won, after 4 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Rio Ave, by (3‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Marítimo, by (4‑1). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 16 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça da Liga, they got an away loss against Portimonense by (4‑1). In the last 7 away league matches Arouca has a record of 1 win, 5 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 8 points out of 21 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 6 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 18 of the last 24 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Arouca come discouraged to this match after the 4-1 defeat against Portimonense. So, the coach Lito Vidigal will choose a defensive approach and based on the counterattack, to take advantage from the opponent back space. However, it's important to note that Maurides is the best visiting team scorer with 6 goals scored. Nuno Coelho won't play this match by suspension. 

Confirmed Lineup: Rafael Bracalli, Lucas Lima, Jaílson , J. Velázquez, Hugo Basto, Artur Moreira, Nuno Coelho, David Simão, Zequinha, Maurides, Ivo Rodrigues.
Coach: Lito Vidigal.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that Nacional will win. Despite don't win for 5 consecutive matches, we believe that Nacional will take advantage from the bad moment and from the lack of opponent's weapons to go back to the victories path. So, it's foreseen that Nacional will have more initiative of game and will take advantage from the best opportunities to win the match.
