FCSB Team News
The home team was very close to winning the title last season. However, they ended the season in second place in the table, with one point less than CFR Cluj.
Decisive was the failure against Voluntari in the penultimate round, so we are sure that FCSB footballers will pay special attention to the “small games”.
Objectively speaking, FCSB has the best offensive line in the league. They demonstrated this in the second part of last year’s championship, when they scored 24 goals in 10 matches.
We believe that they will start the new season in a dominant way, and the new first league team is the ideal opponent to start the winning streak.

U. Cluj Team News
The visiting team is a new member of the highest quality level of Romanian football. With a lot of difficulties, they managed to eliminate Dinamo Bucuresti.
We have to be objective and say that they were very lucky because Dinamo was in complete disintegration last season. If we tried to describe the U. Cluj team with two words, it would be “tough team”.
In 10 matches in the fight for promotion to the first league, they scored 13 and conceded 9 goals, which shows enough that this is a team with very limited offensive qualities.
This year, there will be really big competition in the fight for survival, and the visiting team will have a very hard time preserving the first league status if it focuses only on the defensive segment of the game.
These two teams competed in the same league 7 years ago, so the history of their duels is not too significant.
Injuries and suspensions
There are no significant absences.
FCSB vs. U. Cluj Prediction
Failures against weaker teams cost the FCSB team too much last season. They lost the title due to a few “stupid” failures, so we believe that they will be much more careful this season.
This means that they will not underestimate their opponents lightly, and that they will play every game against outsiders with special focus. We are expecting a duel between two completely different teams, where the home team is offensively oriented, while the guests pay special attention to defense.
As FCSB was great at home last season, this time we are not giving the U. Cluj team too many chances. We believe that the home team will start the competition in the new season with a convincing and sure victory.
