However, their hosts are looking for a fourth straight victory, having racked up nine goals in their last three matches.

In September’s reverse fixture between these two teams, Arouca held out for a 1-1 draw at Estadio Do Dragao, with an Evanilson equaliser sparing Porto’s blushes deep into stoppage time after Cristo Gonzalez had opened the scoring.

Daniel Sousa’s side are enjoying a fine run of form in the Primeira Liga, where they sit seventh following three wins in a row.

Having beaten Estoril and bottom-placed Vizela, Arouca left Portimao with maximum points last time out, following a 2-1 victory over mid-table rivals Portimonense.

Gonzalez failed to score on that occasions, but the other half of Arouca’s Spanish strike force netted again, as Rafa Mujica struck just after halftime, before centre-back Matias Rocha added a crucial second.

Now, Sousa faces the considerable challenge of facing Porto back at Estadio Municipal de Arouca, where his side have won just three of 10 Primeira Liga home matches so far, while conceding more than a goal per game.

Allowing Sporting Lisbon and Benfica to stay clear at the top of the Primeira Liga, Porto dropped points at home to Rio Ave last week, as they had to settle for a goalless draw after seeing two goals disallowed for offside and having a penalty overturned by the VAR.

Although that extended Porto’s unbeaten run to eight matches across all competitions, they remain in third position, six points adrift of league leaders Benfica and four behind second-placed Sporting.

Sergio Conceicao’s side have posted seven wins from 10 away matches so far this season. They are also unbeaten in seven Primeira Liga encounters with Arouca since 2016, outscoring Monday’s hosts 19-2 in the process.

Arouca vs. Porto Head to head

In the 14 previous meetings between these two teams, Arouca have claimed one victory while Porto have won 12, and they have drawn in one. Porto have scored 40 goals and conceded seven in the process.

Porto Team News

Although star striker Mehdi Taremi may be back in contention following Iran’s Asian Cup exit, Porto full-back Zaidu Sanusi is still away with Nigeria at the AFCON and remains unavailable.

Long-term absentee Ivan Marcano also misses out for the visitors, but midfielder Marko Grujic could overcome a muscular problem to play some part in Monday’s game.
