Steaua Bucaresti Preview – Can FCSB cement top four finish?

Friday’s hosts, Steaua Bucresti (FCSB), currently occupy 4th place in the Championship Round standings ahead of this important clash with CFR Cluj at their Arena Naţională with both teams needing the three points to boost their European hopes.

FCSB hold a slender two-point lead over 5th placed Botosani though, so the hosts know that they must get a result of sorts here in order to stave off the challenge from Botosani but to also further strengthen their claims for a top four finish and a spot in the Europa League qualifiers.

However, recent results have failed to match up to FCSB’s ambitions as the hosts have managed to pick up just one win from their previous six matches and indeed, just two from their last 11 matches overall in the Romanian Liga 1, so it may not be plain sailing for FCSB here.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

CFR Cluj Preview – Can CFR Cluj nick top spot?

CFR Cluj sit in 2nd place in the Championship Round group and just a point behind the current leaders, Univ. Craiova, prior to making the the trip to the Arena Naţională to face FCSB, so the visitors know that all three points in this clash would see them top of the group.

With just two matches remaining of this second phase of the Romanian top flight season, this could be a pivotal result for CFR Cluj as they chase the coveted Champions League qualifier spot and they bring a decent sequence of results into this encounter too.

CFR Cluj have suffered just one defeat out of their last 14 matches overall which was a 3-2 loss at home to Univ. Craiova, while on the road they’re unbeaten in their previous six matches having collected wins at Voluntari, Univ. Craiova and Botosani all to nil in 4-0, 2-0 and 2-0 wins respectively.
