Rapid Bucharest vs Astra Giurgiu by Peter
Rapid Bucharest still have financial problems even if they have a new owner, they lost in the League Cup with 2-1 at home against Steaua Bucharest, in the first stage they lost with 3-1 at home against Steaua Bucharest, in the second one they won at FC Viitorul, in the third one they made 1-1 at home against Gaz Metan Medias and in the fourth one they made an 0-0 at Petrolul Ploiesti. They didn't lost or brought any notable player.
On the other side Astra Giurgiu have an fantastic start of season, they won the Romanian Super Cup against Steaua Bucharest, after 1-1 in regular and extra time they won at penalty kicks, in the League Cup they won with 4-1 at FC Brasov, in the first stage they won with 2-0 at Concordia Chiajna, in the second one they won with 5-0 at home against FC Brasov, in the third one they lost with 1-0 at FC Botosani and in the fourth one they won with 2-1 at home against CSMS Iasi. They also play in Europa League, they eliminated FC Slovan Liberec after 3-0 at home and 3-2 at Liberec and 4 days ago they won with 2-1 at Olympique Lyon.They brought some valuable players like Laurentiu Rus (29 years, right-back), Elliot Grandin (26 years, right wing) and Kehinde Fatai (24 years, centre forward) returned from the loan at Club Brugge KV. They lost Karim Yoda who was transferred to Getafe CF.
I'm sure that Astra Giurgiu will rest some players for the upcoming game against Olympique Lyon but I'm sure that they want to equal Steaua Bucharest in the championship.
In my opinion Astra Giurgiu will win with 2-1 or 3-1.
