FC Botosani vs Dinamo Bucharest by Peter
FC Botosani has a bad season start, after 10 rounds they are on 12th with only 7 points, it seems that the participation in the Europa League qualifiers affected them in the championship, in this season they won 1 match, made 4 draws and lost 5 matches.
This week, the coach Leontin Grozavu was fired from FC Botosani, Mugur Cornăţeanu remain as interim until the board will find somebody competent.
On the other side Dinamo Bucharest has a very good season start, after 10 rounds they are on the 4th place with 17 point, in this season they won 4 matches, made 5 draws and lost 1 match.
In the last match, lost with 2-0 at home against CFR Cluj, 3 main players of Dinamo Bucharest received red cards and they will be suspended for this game, also Dinamo Bucharest coach, Mircea Rednic was sent in the tribune and he's also is suspended for this game and he can't stay on the bench.
The players that are suspended are:
Steliano Filip (21 years, Left Back) who played in 9 of 10 championship matches this season and managed to score 1 goal and delivered 1 assist.
Patrice Feussi (28 years Right Back) who played in all 10 championship matches this season.
Cosmin Matei (23 years, Right Wing) who played in all 10 championship matches this season and managed to score 2 goals and delivered 2 assists.
Also Harlem Gnohéré (27 years, Centre Forward) will miss this game due to an injury. Harlem Gnohéré played in 8 of 10 championship matches this season and managed to score 3 goals.
Dinamo Bucharest scored 11 goals this season and 6 of them were scored by players that won't play today.
Even in full formation Dinamo Bucharest didn't impressed in the away matches this season, in 5 away matches played they got 5 draws and managed to score 3 goals and also received 3 goals. In the away matches they attack in the first 30-45 minutes and after that they only defend.
Also, the central referee in this match will be Istvan Kovacs, a referee who had disadvantaged Dinamo Bucharest last season in 2 matches, there were a lot of of disputes with the referee after each match, a lot of bad words and accusations. I believe that the referee didn't forgot the reactions after that matches and for sure he won't whistle in the advantage of Dinamo Bucharest.
Even if I'm a supporter of Dinamo Bucharest I can't see a positive result for them in this match, 4 main players are missing, the coach won't be on the bench, the referee has disadvantaged Dinamo Bucharest in 2 matches last season. All this things aren't so positive for Dinamo Bucharest, and also, Dinamo Bucharest, even in full squad, made 5 draws in 5 away matches this season, so today, with so many problems even a draw seems hard to obtain. Even if FC Botosani didn't impressed this season, they lost their coach, they know they play against a weaker Dinamo Bucharest and this can be their chance to get an impulse for the upcoming matches.
