Astra Ploieşti head into this fixture coming off the back of a 0-0 Liga 1 Play Offs drawn match vs Chindia Târgoviște.
Games with Astra Ploieşti have proved to be fairly ponderous affairs of late with ineffective forward attacks almost becoming expected. Over their past 6 games, a miniscule aggregate goal total of 5 has been yielded between both them and their opposition at an average of 0.83 goals per game.
CSM Politehnica Iași
Since a loss in their previous game against Chindia Târgoviște in Liga 1 Play Offs competition, CSM Politehnica Iași and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
It has become apparent that CSM Politehnica Iași have suffered from a lack of goals over their previous 6 games, contributing the poor return of just 4. In those fixtures, Alb-Albaştrii have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 6. Putting that to one side, it remains to be seen whether the trend will be maintained in this next game.
Team News: Astra Ploieşti
Astra Ploieşti boss Bogdan Andone doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match with a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: CSM Politehnica Iași
Owing to a fully injury-free group available for selection, CSM Politehnica Iași manager Mihai Teja doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
It looks to us that Astra Ploieşti will probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the same time, CSM Politehnica Iași are also probably going to find it difficult to score a goal of their own but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Astra Ploieşti by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
