Gaz Metan Mediaş
Gaz Metan Mediaş will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-1 Liga I defeat in their last game at the hands of Botoșani.
It has been seldom in recent games where Gaz Metan Mediaş haven’t conceded. The reality is that Lupii negri have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals along the way.

Throughout their six previous matches, CFR Cluj have found the net 8 times - earning them a goals scored per game average of 1.33.
Looking at the pre-match facts, CFR Cluj:
- are winless against Gaz Metan Mediaş in away games against them for the last 2 league games.

Team News: Gaz Metan Mediaş
Gaz Metan Mediaş manager Edward Iordănescu has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Cluj
Thanks to a largely available group, there’s only the sole fitness issue for the Cluj gaffer to contend with. Mike Cestor (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be playing here.
We envisage that Gaz Metan Mediaş are certainly able to breach the defence of this Cluj side, although one goal probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a 1-2 victory for Cluj after the 90. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
