Porto and Arouca will face off in the Primeira Liga on Wednesday at the Estadio do Dragao after a lengthy layoff.
The hosts have won their last two games and are unbeaten in three games. Ivan Marcano, Stephen Eustaquio, and Galeno scored goals to give them a 4-1 victory over Boavista. In last Thursday’s Taca da Liga quarterfinal match, they defeated Gil Vicente 2-0. They are currently 2nd in the table behind Benfica.
Rio Ave defeated Arouca 1-0, ending their six-game league winning streak. In the Taca de Liga, they beat Moreirense 2-1 to get to the last four. Arouca are 10th in the standings with 19 points.

Due to a severe muscle injury, Porto will play without midfielder Eustaquio.
He is joined on the team’s injury list by Nigerian fullback Zaidu Sanusi, who has been out since suffering a muscle injury in November’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid.
Vitinho, the 22-year-old striker who hasn’t played since October, will be missed by Arouca, who will have to do without him.
Since Mujica has been on fire for the Arouquenses lately, the Spanish striker should once more spearhead the visiting team’s attack.
