Team News: Hermannstadt
The Hermannstadt manager Eugen Neagoe has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match with a completely healthy squad to pick from.
In our view, Sibienii look set to kick off with a 4-4-2 system featuring Catalin Cabuz, Mihai Butean, Valerica Gaman, Ionut Stoica, Alexandru Oroian, Silviu Balaure, Ciprian Biceanu, Baba Alhassan, A. Daniel Jipa, Gabriel Iancu and Daniel Paraschiv.
Team News: Voluntari
Voluntari manager Cristiano Bergodi has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. George Merloi (Unknown Injury), Naser Aliji (Foot Injury) and Lukas Droppa (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) are those who can’t be considered.
It’s our belief that Alb-Vișinii seem likely to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with Octavian Valceanu, Ricardinho, Patricio Matricardi, Igor Armas, Radu Boboc, R. Mar Sigurjonsson, Vadim Rata, D. Constantin Florea, Mihai Radut, Doru Cristian Andrei and Adam Nemec.
Voluntari have the ability to score against this Hermannstadt outfit, but that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Hermannstadt at the end of the 90 minutes. Let’s just see how this one goes.
