Concordia Chiajna and Juventus Bucuresti will square off in the 6th round of the Romanian Liga 1. The two teams are currently bottom of the league and this will already be a very important clash in perspective of the relegation battle.
Chiajna, a perennial relegation candidate in Romania, had a horrible start to the season, claiming a single point in 5 rounds. However, things are actually not that bad for the hosts. Chiajna changed their manager after the first round, hiring a very capable coach in the form of Vasile Miriuta, and their level of play has gotten increasingly better. In the last two games Chiajna narrowly lost against two of the best teams in Romania (Astra and FCSB), and Chiajna deserved to get something out of both of those matches.
Juventus Bucuresti found life in Liga 1 very difficult so far, after they won the second division in dominant fashion last year. The visitors (1 point in 5 rounds) have lost in the last two rounds against relegation rivals ACS Poli (1-2) and against CSU Craiova (0-1), but they were really lucky not to lose by more in both of those games.Bet on Chiajna vs. Juventus and claim your 100% (100 Eur) bonus at Ohmbet now!
Team news: Key right back Barboianu is the only absentee for Concordia Chiajna, while Juventus Bucharest has a full squad available.
Stats are very misleading here. Looking at the results you can conclude that there is not a big difference between the two teams, but truth is a difference exists, and the two sides are also going in opposite directions.
Juventus deserved all of their losses and only some late goals allowed them to keep results respectable, while Chiajna is coming after two games against top teams in which they played good football, deserving point(s) against both Astra and FCSB. Chiajna also had a much more difficult schedule, which heavily contributed to their poor record.
The gap between the first two levels of Romanian football is massive, and Juventus is fully feeling that so far this season. A fair case can be made that the Liga 1 newcomers are the worst team in the league.
Chiajna on the other hand, despite being a rather poor team themselves, seem to be on the rise with their new manager and their clear improvements over the last few rounds. Chiajna has a better roster than Juventus and this is definitely the moment for them to claim a much needed win.
My tip on this match is Concordia Chiajna to win with a -0,25 asian handicap (half of the stakes back in case of a draw). Prediction: Concordia Chiajna – Juventus Bucuresti 1-0.
Pick: Chiajna (-0,25 Asian Handicap)
