Brasov has no special injury concerns once again, recently they appointed coach Szabo who has been in the team before and is known to be capable of handling such situations. Hosts in a abd run now, although they desrved a bit more imo and players seem more focused now. They have rather good attack and a lot of players who are capable to score.
I am not quite sure if Rapid should be favourites here, I expect a 50/50 match. Visitors usually very tight in defence, although lately made too muc individual errors imo. Attack is really weak, although they create, not much players who deliver goals and so far only 14 goals have been scored by them. No big missings here two but still 2-3 starters will miss the game.
Brasov won the reverse fixture, I do not see why they should be such underdogs at home with best squad available.
Probable Line -ups:
Rapid: Buchta – Săpunaru, Cmovs, Sapina, Josl – Garai, Coimbra, Gecov – E. Oriol, D. Niculae, Meulens
FC Brașov: Iacob – Matei, Novakovici, L. Goian, Novak – Aganovici, Jurici, C. Ganea, Bencun – Constantinescu, Moraru
