Team News: UTA Arad
Due to a fully injury-free group to pick from, the UTA Arad manager has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
It’s our belief that UTA Arad appear most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Florin Iacob, Marko Vukcevic, Alexandru Benga, Andrei Chindris, Mihai Dobrescu, J. Bautista Cascini, Idriz Batha, Raul Steau, Florentin Matei, Philip Otele and Virgiliu Postolachi.
Our thinking is that UTA Arad should be able to find the back of the net against this Sepsi Sfântu Gheorghe team, but it realistically won’t be enough to avoid a loss.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 winning score for Sepsi Sfântu Gheorghe when all is said and done. Looking forward to this.
