Viitorul Constanța will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 1-2 Liga I defeat in their last game at the hands of CSM Politehnica Iași.
Their latest results reveal that not much more can be done by the Viitorul Constanța defence. Puștii lui Hagi have given the opposition little, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous six clashes standing at 4. It will be interesting to find out if that trend will be sustained here.
Going into this contest, Viitorul Constanța have left without a victory over Gaz Metan Mediaş in their last 2 matches in the league.
Gaz Metan Mediaş
In their previous fixture, Gaz Metan Mediaş drew 0-0 in the Liga I match with Astra Ploieşti.

Pre-game facts show that Gaz Metan Mediaş:
- have not beaten Viitorul Constanța when having played them away from home in the previous 6 league matches. Not the best of away records.
- are without a win away from home in their last 8 league games. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.

Team News: Viitorul Constanța
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Viitorul Constanța boss Gheorghe Hagi to contend with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Carlo Casap (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Gaz Metan Mediaş
Thanks to a fully healthy group available to choose from, Gaz Metan Mediaş boss Edward Iordănescu has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
In our opinion, Gaz Metan Mediaş could find themselves struggling to be putting a goal past this Viitorul Constanța lineup who will likely emerge victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 1-0 win for Viitorul Constanța when the full-time whistle blows.
Looking forward to this.
