First of all, it is a miracle that Astra Giurgiu reached this qual. round in Europe's League. There were not big investitions made for the team since they went back on their foot again. What I'm tryin' to say is that the team had the luck of having promising low-paid players and few out of contract one camed from other teams and reformed the team. After the first good resulting season, they started to make few transfers bringing young romanian talents and few regardless arabians or french colonies in team testings. It was a team made that fighted for championship but never maintained the progress line like steaua bucharest but finished not much under so far winning the title. The team grew in the same time like Petrolul Ploiesti, but never made big investments like they did it. Despite the money fact, they still have better co-efficiency than them. Team struggled many times last year in relative easy matches, this year they resolved the scoring issues but still have to work in defensive organising as well. It is the conclusion after results like: Rapid Bucharest 0-2, 2-1 CSMS Iasi, Botosani 1-0 or Liberec 2-3. We can observe how much efforts they made in Euro Cups but couldn't stand against teams with salaries less than 100 thousand euros. Lyon has the decadence period as well, lost against new promoted Lens (i remarked and liked the team since 2009) but saw the whole match against Toulouse and saw how many times Ben Yeder&co. could've scored. Mlada Boleslav scored on Lyon's field, Liberec scored 2 in the match. More turn-around situations in chosing the pick can be seen in results like Copenhaga 0-2 or Debrecen 4-2. Oh comon', Hungary to score 4 goals with Lyon??? This must be the rain of goals I need, Lyon without Lisandro Lopez or Gomis must fortify this last chance in this last call or team will see a non-profit season this year, lucky they selled best players to save themselves from total collapse. Qual. is still played, this can only lead to goals.(phone)
