Seven years have passed since FCSB won the last title in Romania. After four rounds in the new season, it seems that this drought will continue. They collected only three points so far and they still haven’t won a game. All this affected a lot of things within the club.
Due to a poor start of the season in domestic league and disagreements with owner Gigi Becali, former head coach Anton Petrea resigned three weeks ago. He was succeeded by Nicolae Dica. In Europe it’s a completely different story. FCSB eliminated Saburtalo and Dunajska Streda in the Conference League qualifying so far. They will play against the Viking in the playoffs and will have a chance to play in the group stage for the first time since 2017.
Before first leg against Viking, FCSB will try to achieve their first triumph in the Romanian League this season. Chindia Targoviste is the ideal opponent for them to do so as they are one of the weakest teams in the championship. It is possible that Dica will rest some players for Thursday, but most of the starters will be in the team.
Chindia Targoviste avoided relegation last season thanks to Nasser Chamed last-minute goal against Concordia in the relegation play-offs. With that goal, he took the match first to extra time and then to penalty shooutout where Chindia Targoviste was better than the opponent.
They are hoping that this season will be a lot less stressful, but it doesn’t look like it will be. In the first four rounds, Chindia Targoviste collected only two points and they still don’t have a win. Now, they are visiting Bucharest to play against FCSB and unless a sensation happens, they will still be without a triumph in 2022/2023 season. One of their best players from last season Marco Dulca signed for FCSB this summer, so he might now play against his former club.
After this round, Chindia Targoviste will have several games in which they can hope to win. Against FCSB, even a point would be a successful outcome, knowing how they played against this opponent in the past.
FCSB won last four matches against Chindia Targoviste. In total, they played six times in the Romanian League. It was a draw once and FCSB won five times.
Ionut Pantiru, Iulian Cristea, Ovidiu Popescu, Andrei Dumiter, David Miculescu and Adrian Sut are injured and won’t play for FCSB in this match. All players are available for Chindia Targoviste.
FCSB vs. Chindia Targoviste Prediction
Most absent playerss haven’t played for FCSB for a long time so they are used to it. This match against Chindia Targoviste is a great opportunity to further boost confidence before a key match in Europe. Coach Dica certainly won’t calculate too much and FCSB will do everything they can to achieve the first triumph in domestic championship this season.
