Academia Clinceni will be hoping to bounce back here after the 4-3 Liga 1 Play Offs loss in their previous game against Gaz Metan Mediaş.
Academia Clinceni haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics in recent times. Their sum of goals equals just 4 vs opposing sides during the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those games, Academia Clinceni have also seen the number of goals scored against them come to 24. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, though.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Dinamo Bucharest in Liga 1 Play Offs competition, Botoșani and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The numbers tell their own story, and Botoșani have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 9 goals in all. At the back, Botoșani have been far from perfect.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 20/09/2020, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Academia Clinceni winning 2 of those games, Botoșani 2 and 2 being draws in normal time.
17 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 8 of them for Academicienii and 9 for Botoșănenii. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.83.
Team News: Academia Clinceni
The Academia Clinceni manager Marin Dună will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
It seems likely that Academicienii look set to use the 5-3-2 formation this time, beginning the first half with Andrei Ureche, Andrei Iana, Catalin Ion, Aleksandar Tsvetkov, I. Cristian Stefan, Marcel Holzmann, Luca Florica, Mario Vrdoljak, Robert Ion, Valentin Dumitrache and Robert Jerdea.
Team News: Botoșani
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Botoșani manager Marius Croitoru has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this clash.
From our viewpoint, Botoșănenii appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup using Eduard Pap, Christopher Braun, J. Dawa Tchakonte, Alin Seroni, Alexandru Tiganasu, Denis Harut, Victor Dican, Enriko Papa, Andrei Tircoveanu, Mihai Roman and Jaja.
We’re inclined to think that Academia Clinceni should get enough chances to get a goal against this Botoșani outfit, although just one goal is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 1-2 winning score for Botoșani at the end of this one. Looking forward to this.
