Team News: Voluntari
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Voluntari manager Ilie Poenaru to contend with from of an almost fully healthy group. Andreas Niță (Cruciate ligament surgery) is sidelined.
We are thinking that Alb-Vișinii will possibly make use of the 4-2-3-1 system featuring Jesus Fernandez, Ricardinho, Grigore Turda, Patricio Matricardi, Radu Boboc, Lukas Droppa, Ljuban Crepulja, D. Constantin Florea, Mihai Radut, Robert Popescu and Adam Nemec.
Team News: UTA Arad
Owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from, the UTA Arad boss Mircea Rednic does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match.
We reckon that UTA Arad seem most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, starting Florin Iacob, Tiberiu Capusa, Ariel Lopez, Alexandru Benga, Diogo Rodrigues, Cristian Mihai, Marcelo Freitas, Rares Pop, Andrej Fabry, Eric Johana Omondi and Kevin Luckassen.
We’ve got the feeling that UTA Arad and Voluntari should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. Therefore, we predict a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
