Team News: Chindia Târgoviște
The Chindia Târgoviște manager Viorel Moldovan has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of before this game owing to a fully healthy group available for selection.
We are thinking that Micul Ajax may well go for a 4-2-3-1 system featuring Catalin Cabuz, Tiberiu Capusa, Daniel Celea, Deian Boldor, Denis Dumitrascu, Juan Pablo Passaglia, Modestas Vorobjovas, Cristian Negut, Nasser Chamed, Andrei Serban and Daniel Popa.
Team News: Cluj
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there is only the one fitness problem for the Cluj gaffer Dan Petrescu to be concerned with. Florinel Mitrea (Ligament Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re of the thinking that Ceferiștii will likely make use of a 4-3-3 system with a starting lineup of Simone Scuffet, Christopher Braun, Daniel Graovac, Andrei Burca, Camora, B. Adjei-Boateng, Mihai Bordeianu, Alexandru Paun, Ciprian Ioan Deac, Gabriel Debeljuh and Claudiu Petrila.
Chindia Târgoviște will need to put in a solid display to break down this CFR Cluj outfit who we think will manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a narrow 0-1 advantage for CFR Cluj when all is said and done.
Should be interesting.
