U Craiova Viitorul betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario will be the home team to win the with some difficulty to  and continue in the fight for the title. Playing at home, it is expected that Corneliu Papura's team will dominate the match and create the best goal opportunities, as they present more technical / tactical arguments than their opponent. On the other hand, FC Viitorul should adopt a defensive mentality in search of the opponent's error to go out on the counterattack and surprise the rival defense. Having said that and taking into account the recent results between the two teams, betting in favor of Universitatea Craiova is a worthwhile option.

Analysis U Craiova

The home team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 34 points won, after 10 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Sepsi, by (0‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Astra, by (1‑1). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss in away matches; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium. For the league, Universitatea Craiova won 13 points out of 24 possible points, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 8 home matches. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). In their home matches for this competition there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 17 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

The group led by Corneliu Papura should present themselves in a 4-3-3, privileging the defensive organization and the counterattacks, mostly, channeled through the side corridors. The three most advanced players responsible for making sense tormenting the rival defensive structure are George Cimpanu, Ivan Mamut and Reagy Ofosu. As far as the midfield is concerned, it should be formed by Dan Nistor, Alexandru Mateiu and Alexandru Cicaldau. Apparently, the Universitatea Craiova coach should have all the players available.

Confirmed Lineup: Mirko Pigliacelli, George Alexandru, Marius Constantin, Stefan Vlădoiu, Paul Papp, Nicușor Bancu, Reagy Ofosu, Alexandru Cicâldău, Alexandru Mateiu, Dan Nistor, Ivan Mamut.

Analysis Viitorul

The away team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 22 points won, after 4 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against UTA Arad, by (0‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against FCSB, by (2‑2). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 19 conceded; against 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 21 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Viitorul has a record of 1 win, 4 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 24 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 4 away matches. In their away league matches there are a few frequent results at half‑time: 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and 0‑1 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 16 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 7 of their 20 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

On the other side of the field, FC Viitorul should line up in the usual 4-3-3 tactical system to promote supported football. Alexandru Matan, Kevin Luckassen and Ely Fernandes should be the visiting team's offensive references. For its part, the central corridor should be formed by Andrei Artean, Andrei Ciobanu and Cosmin Matei. For this match, the helmsman of the visitors has the team in maximum strength for the duel with Universitatea Craiova.

Confirmed Lineup: Valentin Cojocaru, Radu Boboc, Virgil Ghiță, Sebastien Mladen, Romario Benzar, Cosmin Matei, Andrei Artean, David Babunski, Kevin Luckassen, George Ganea, Ely Fernandes.
