Astra are struggling in the championship group and sit in 5th position since the league has been split into two places. They have two defeats and a draw from their last three games although the draw did come in their last game away at CFR Cluj which is no small feat. They will be hoping to build on that result against a back to form Steaua Bucharest side.
FCSB finished second in the preliminary rounds but will move top with a win in this game and a chance to be campions is sure to appeal to Steaua as a whole. With four wins and a draw in their last five games, they are in pretty good form ahead of this game and will be pushing all out to get the three points on offer for this game.
Steaua have been made 1.57 favorites at Bet365 and I quite agree although they are a bit short on value. A better bet could on be an away win with both teams getting on the scoresheet though as Astra are no pushovers, especially on this ground and I expect them to get on the scoresheet at least once in this game but ultimately, Astra should prevail in an entertaining win.
