My favorite bet for today. U.Cluj is a team on the rise. The team plays good, enjoyable football and despite the fact that they play their home games on a neutral venue they’re unbeaten for quite a while.
Youngster Cojocnean score 3 goals in their last 2 games and he looks like an excellent prospect for the future. In a league where almost every team puts too much fate in defence I really like watching U.Cluj’s games cause they’re always full of goals. Full squad available for them here.
M.Popa – Unguruşan, Abrudan, Pelé, Bazzi – Cojocnean, Menassel, Adrian Cristea, Boştină – Cl.Niculescu, Machado
Timisoara is a bleeding team. They stumble quite a lot lately and mainly against ultra-defensive minded teams. But they are at heart an attacking team and you can see that at best when they play other attacking minded teams like the 3-2 win at Sportul, the 3-2 loss at Rapid or even the 2-2 draw with Astra and the 2-1 win at CFR Cluj. They can score against anyone but they also have a big blow for this match. Goalkeeper Pantilimon, the Romania national team component is injured. His replacement Taborda is pretty much a joke if put against top strikers. And the offensive potential of U.Cluj is truely huge for this level.
Taborda – Luchin, Čišovský, Ghionea, Sepsi – Alexa, Bourceanu – Curtean, Zicu, Goga – Magera
I’m quite enthusiastic thinking of this game and I honestly don’t know which is better to take. over 2.5 is priced at 1.80, and it’s a pretty clear sign that the bookies recognise this match has big potential for goals considering odds are usually at 2.15 when it comes to overs in this league. The first match between these 2 teams ended in a 2-2 draw. Now I expect both to score, even more than once. Over 2.5 should be in the bank, but I got the feeling we could push it even more. So over 3 is worth the risk, would go over 4.5 as well considering the odds of 6.00-7.00 but I don’t want to push my luck. Still really juicy odds.
