Arouca is one of the teams at the Portuguese Cup Quarter Finals after beating Amarante by 1-2. Despite being on a similar position of his opponent in this fixture, Arouca is showing many difficulties in all departments of the game. The young portuguese Ivo Rodrigues is their main offensive reference but continues with some issues to finish the plays with goals. Nuno Valente is the great piece of their midfield despite his physical weaknes. His vision is vital for the team. The defender Gêgê is unavailable to this match because is suspended.

Marítimo is starting to produce some very good results as we watched in the last fixture when they beated Guimarães away from home by 4-3. The giant Diego Souza is their main offensive reference thanks to his good aerial game. Against a strong opponent, we expect Marítimo to explore the quick transitions, keeping his defence tight and then trying to attack quickly. The goalkeeper Romain Salin is suspended and won't play.
