Universitatea Craiova will be hoping to bounce back here after a 2-0 Liga I losing effort in their last game against CFR Cluj.

The only player to score from Universitatea Craiova was Valerică Găman (28' Own goal). Karlo Muhar (18') was the scorer for CFR Cluj.

It’s been all too rare in recent times where Universitatea Craiova have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Universitatea Craiova have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 8 goals on the way.

Their prior results show that Universitatea Craiova:

  • are winless against Steaua Bucharest in home games against them for the last 3 matches in the league.
  • haven't beaten Steaua Bucharest in their previous 7 matches in the league.
  • are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.

In the game prior to this, Steaua Bucharest drew 0-0 in the Conference League tie with RSC Anderlecht.

Steaua Bucharest have been dangerous up front of late, scoring 8 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Nicolae Dică will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Steaua Bucharest can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same matches. Having said that, it remains to be seen whether such a trend will be maintained in this next game.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Checking out their prior head to head duels dating back to 29/04/2021, neither club has come out on top overall with Universitatea Craiova winning 3 of those games, Steaua Bucharest 3 and 0 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.

A sum of 16 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 8 from Studenţii and 8 netted by Steliștii. The average goals per game has been 2.67.

The last league meeting between the two was Liga 1 Play Offs match day 8 on 08/05/2022 when the final score was Universitatea Craiova 0-1 Steaua Bucharest.

ℹ️ Team News: Universitatea Craiova

Andrei Ivan (Muscle Injury) and Elvir Koljic (Tear in the abductor muscle) will not be taking part for Universitatea Craiova gaffer Victor Piţurcă. Terell Ondaan is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

We are thinking that Studenţii look set to line up in a 3-4-3 formation for the game, beginning the first half with David Lazar, Paul Papp, Valerica Gaman, Bogdan Mitrea, Bogdan Vatajelu, Alexandru Cretu, Dan Nistor, Vladimir Screciu, George Cimpanu, Jovan Markovic and Nicusor Bancu.

📋 Team News: Steaua Bucharest

Thanks to a completely injury-free group available to select from, the Steaua Bucharest manager Nicolae Dică has no fitness worries to report before this game.

From our viewpoint, Steliștii will likely utilise a 4-3-3 lineup, settling for Stefan Tarnovanu, Radu Boboc, J. Dawa Tchakonte, Joonas Tamm, Risto Radunovic, Razvan Oaida, Darius Olaru, Octavian Popescu, David Miculescu, Andrea Compagno and Florinel Coman.

💭 Prediction

We feel that Steaua Bucharest and Universitatea Craiova might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.

We’ll have to see, but a draw might be on the cards. We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the match.

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