CFR Cluj vs Petrolul Ploiesti by Sors
In the matter of fact, the hosts don’t play outstanding football, but is obvious that Toni Conceicao is doing great in Cluj-Napoca and CFR Cluj turned into a well balanced team, with a solid defense, but still with some problems in attack, even though the hosts have enough options in that zone, especially with the new signings Juan Carlos (midf. / 1 goal) and Cristian Bud (forw. / 2 goal).
Vitor Bruno (midf. / 4 goals) returns to the squad after suspension, but Andrei Muresan (def.) will serve a one-match ban.Muresan is key player at the heart of CFR’s defense, but I doubt that his absence will be so big problem against the last team in the standings.
The guests look to avoid a tenth consecutive loss in the league and sixth in 2016 after those against U. Craiova (0-2/away), Viitorul (1-2/home), Poli Timisoara (0-1/away), Botosani (0-1/away) and CSMS Iasi on March 11 (1-2/home).
Petrolul is going through a difficult period, as this team is on the last spot in the standings, without real chances to avoid relegation at the end of the season.A lot of changes have been made in the squad during the break, but the guests continue to struggle.
However, there are some things that should be taken into account here: the guests are not as helpless as probably look like, they lost only once with more than one goal difference in the previous five rounds in 2016, the defense is on a relatively good level and they still have many players with big experience in this league.
In addition to that, Ionel Gane will make his debut as Petrolul manager in that game, he’ll has a full squad to choose from and is well known that motivation of the players is usually on a high level in such moments.
Last time then Petrolul won points in the league was exactly against CFR Cluj (1-0 at home on Nov. 27), the hosts traditionally have problems against this opponent and although I doubt that CFR Cluj will fail to win three points today, I don’t think that this will be an easy task for the home team.
