Team News: Hermannstadt
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Hermannstadt boss Eugen Neagoe to be concerned about from an otherwise complete set of players. Dragos Iancu (Broken fibula) is out of contention.
We are thinking that Sibienii may well line up in a 4-4-2 system for this game, beginning the first half with Catalin Cabuz, Paolo Medina, Valerica Gaman, Florin Bejan, Mihai Butean, Silviu Balaure, Sota Mino, Baba Alhassan, A. Daniel Jipa, Cristian Negut and Daniel Paraschiv.
Team News: CSM Politehnica Iași
Thanks to a completely healthy squad ready to go, the CSM Politehnica Iași manager Mihai Teja doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game.
We believe Alb-Albaştrii appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Silviu Lung Jr., Marius Martac, Nicolas Samayoa, Matija Katanec, Rares Ispas, Andrei Ciobanu, Mihai Bordeianu, Julian Marchioni, Andrei Gheorghita, Shayon Harrison and Luis Phelipe.
Our feeling is that CSM Politehnica Iași should be able to score against this Hermannstadt outfit, although that probably shouldn’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re predicting a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Hermannstadt by the conclusion of the game. Could easily see this go either way.
