Arouca and Benfica will meet at the Estadio Municipal de Arouca on Tuesday (October 31) in Group B of the Taca da Liga.
The hosts failed to stop the rot in Portugal’s Primeira Liga as they succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat to Moreirense on Friday. Daniel Ramos’ men have lost their last five league games, conceding seven goals and scoring once since a 1-1 draw against Porto in August.
Arouca now turn their attention to the Taca da Liga, where they top Group B after a 2-1 win over AVS in the opening match on September 26.
Meanwhile, Benfica were left spitting feathers last time out when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Casa Pia at the Estadio da Luz. Before that, Rodger Schmidt’s side had seven Primeira victories since August, scoring 16 goals and keeping four clean sheets.
Benfica are level on 22 points with Sporting Lisbon at the top of the Primeira Liga and will be looking to start their Taca da Liga campaign on a high.
