Rapid Bucharest won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-1 Liga 1 Play Offs defeat in their last game at the hands of Universitatea Craiova.

In that match, Rapid Bucharest managed 60% possession and 18 shots at goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Rapid Bucharest was Funsho Bamgboye (48'). On the other side, Universitatea Craiova got 7 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Alexandru Mitriţă (66') scored for Universitatea Craiova.

It’s been all too rare in recent games where Rapid Bucharest have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Rapid Bucharest have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 9 goals along the way.

Last time out, Cluj drew 1-1 in the Liga 1 Play Offs tie with Sepsi Sfântu Gheorghe.

In that match, CFR Cluj had 54% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 8 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for CFR Cluj was Matija Boben (21'). Sepsi OSK had 10 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Marius Ștefănescu (9') was the scorer for Sepsi Sfântu Gheorghe.

In their previous six clashes, CFR Cluj have bagged a tally of 10 goals. CFR Cluj have also scored on each one of those occasions. Over that period, their defenders have had 6 goals scored by their opponents. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this game, of course.

👥 Head to head

An examination of their prior head to head meetings stretching back to 16/07/2022 tells us that Rapid Bucharest have won 4 of these games and Cluj 1, with the number of draws standing at 1.

An aggregate of 17 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 11 for Giuleștenii and 6 netted by Ceferiștii. That is an average goals per game value of 2.83.

The previous league meeting between these sides was Liga I match day 25 on 10/02/2024 which ended up with the score at CFR Cluj 0-1 Rapid Bucharest.

On that day, CFR Cluj had 66% possession and 13 shots at goal with 3 on target.

Rapid Bucharest had 15 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Damjan Đoković (9') was the scorer.

ℹ️ Team News: Rapid Bucharest

Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Rapid Bucharest gaffer Cristiano Bergodi to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. Mattias Käit (surgery) won’t play.

In our view, Giuleștenii should make use of the 4-2-3-1 system for this game and select Mihai Aioani, Christopher Braun, Iulian Cristea, Paul Iacob, Andrei Borza, Jakub Hromada, Damjan Djokovic, Funsho Bamgboye, Florent Hasani, Jayson Papeau and Albion Rrahmani.

🗞️ Team News: Cluj

Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the Cluj manager Andrea Mandorlini has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.

From our viewpoint, Ceferiștii will likely utilise a 4-3-3 formation, going with Razvan Sava, Cristian Manea, Vasile Mogos, Matija Boben, Camora, Karlo Muhar, Kader Keita, Durel Avounou, Ciprian Ioan Deac, Peter Michael and Philip Otele.

✨ Prediction

We are of the inclination to think that CFR Cluj and Rapid Bucharest could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.

It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter, finishing with a score draw when the full-time whistle blows.

Our expert partners are tipping under 3.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
