Team News: Hermannstadt
The Hermannstadt manager Eugen Neagoe will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to choose from.
We think that Sibienii should use the 4-3-3 system for this game, utilising Plamen Iliev, Mihai Butean, Florin Bejan, Ionut Stoica, Raul Oprut, Ciprian Biceanu, Sota Mino, Baba Alhassan, Petrisor Petrescu, Daniel Paraschiv and Alexandru Oroian.
Team News: Botoșani
Thanks to a fully healthy squad ready to go, the Botoșani manager Marius Croitoru doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this match.
We are inclined to think that Botoșănenii could decide to elect for a 3-2-3-2 formation, starting the game with Eduard Pap, Victor Dican, Alin Seroni, Alexandru Tiganasu, Shaquill Sno, Andrei Dragu, Elad Shahaf, Ovidiu Perianu, Eduard Florescu, Sekou Camara and Sebastian Mailat.
It’s looking like Botoșani and Hermannstadt should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore anticipating a hard-fought 1-1 draw when the full-time whistle blows.
