AFC Hermannstadt vs FC Academica Clinceni (By: Bogdan)
Hermannstadt (Sibiu in German Language) will play against Academica Clinceni in Targu Mures on Friday.
Both sides have really struggled to get points this season and after 5 matches they have only one win each.
The difference between these results is that Hermannstadt had matches only against very good sides in Liga I, like CFR, FCSB, Craiova and Viitorul. They managed to beat Craiova and they have shown offensive football, like all the teams that their coach, Enache, has managed in the last years.
Scoring 3 against FCSB, 2 against Viitorul and 2 against Craiova is not easy and they clearly did it! 0-3 to CFR was an accident and they have been very positive anyway in that match.
Sibiu should be:
FC Hermannstadt (4-2-3-1): Cristiano - Mățel, Dandea (Luchin), Viera, Opruţ - Buzan, Romário Pires - P. Petrescu, Caiado, Jô Santos - Debeljuh
Academica has won Liga II last year, but they are far from the quality required in the Liga I. They have been making huge efforts to rise their level and played well in attack. They won with Chindia and their attitude makes the difference. The 4 defeats they have came naturally as they have poor defensive game play.
Academica Clinceni (4-2-3-1): Vâlceanu - G. Matei, A. Răuță, Patriche, Dobrescu - Şut, R. Ion - Nsiah, B. Barbu, Buziuc - Vojtuš
No notable absentees for the two sides so far.
As history the two sides never met in Liga I, but in Liga II and Romanian Cup there were 3 matches and all of them have been won by Hermannstadt Sibiu, conceding no goal from Clinceni.
Seeing all the matches of these sides so far I can guarantee that Sibiu is the value here. There is a big difference of quality between the two sides and only a very bad day for Sibiu would make them not to win this match.
I also recommend over 2.5 goals or Sibiu to score at least 2 goals, but the banker for me is the Home Win.
