Viitorul vs Pandurii by AlQahira

In the last match of the regular season in Liga 1 Viitorul Constanta will host Pandurii Targu Jiu. Both these teams have pocketed their tickets for the play-off. Viitorul is placed 3rd at the moment and a win would propel them to the second place after Dinamo only drew in Giurgiu with Astra yesterday. Pandurii on the other hand is placed 5th with 44 points and if they win they will clinch a place on the podium at the end of the regular season.


Since the teams will enter into the play-offs with their points tally halved, a draw today wouldn't benefit at all either of the teams. Viitorul has assured at the moment 23 points for the play-off, while Pandurii 22. Lose or draw they will not gather any other points but a victory will add another point to their dowry. So I'm expecting both teams to take more risks in order to win.


Pandurii have been dealt a major blow last week when it was announced that the state owned mining company that's their many sponsor will cut the financing of the team and if they don't find miraculous other financing sources ASAP they will be relegated at the end of the season. The overall picture for this team is very bleak, they seemed to really be affected against Craiova last round when they really played bad. For Viitorul the match lost against Iasi in the first game of the new year was an wake up call; Hagi's foals seemed to get ahead of themselves, but they bounced back with a victory against Petrolul on the road. I belive Viitorul has what it takes to fight for the title, a victory today means they will enter into the play-offs only one point behind leaders Astra and they should win today against a team plagued by worries.

No offense intended, but the Romanian league smells.
