Varzim vs Arouca by Garc1
2nd round of the Portuguese league cup between Varzim and Arouca played at Varzim Sport Stadium.
With the National teams playing their games for qualification to Euro 2016, the only games that are available beside those are league cups and lower division matches.
So the offering is limited to games that are more difficult to predict and were anything can happen.
It doesn´t mean that the element of surprise only happens here, not at all!! We had a lot of surprisingly outcomes in the National teams also, Iceland that only conceded 1 goal at home suffers 2 from the lowest scoring team in the group Latvia after being in the lead by 2-0,Argentina loses the game at home by 2-0 against Ecuador, Slovakia loses against a week Bielorrusia that played most of the game with less 1 player by 1-0,Hungary suffers a goal from Week Faroe islands making the game go over 2,5 goals, Portugal U21 only scored 2 against Hungary U21 with 2-0 after 50 minutes it was an highway to the 3-0 all the game but that ball didn’t go into the goal… This round of Euro qualifiers had a lot of surprises.
Back to this game, it’s a second division team against a 1st division team.
Varzim is in the 14th position of the second league with 13 points so far, with a record of 10/14, with an average of 1,1 scored and 1.2 conceded and its mainly a strong team at home because 12 of the 13 points were gained at home, this however is a league cup game and Arouca is a far better side.
Arouca is a 1st division team and by 3 rounds were in top of the league wining the first 2 games and drawing the third, even won Benfica, that was considered a scandal , but after 32 shots on target, the ball didn´t go in and the 90 minutes came. It´s football…
After this amazing start the team of Arouca waked up for reality and now doesn´t have a win in 5 straight games, so all the attentions goes for this one to boost morale, they are a very difficult team to beat, score few but difficult to beat, just see the records…Only 1 goal per match scored and 0.8 goals conceded and 70% of games under 2,5 goals.
With these numbers we might clearly say that it will be a low scoring game…I do not think so…Arouca needs this one…Varzim needs this one…Arouca to boost morale, with a very good coach Lito Vidigal, they need this one…Varzim plays at Home, 4 wins out of 4 , on the 14th position, they need this one because they have only maintenance to achieve and want to go as far as they in this competition.
So my choice goes for both teams to score and over 2,5 goals.
