Tonight, CFR Cluj and FC Brașov will meet in a match that counts for the 13th stage of Liga 1.
CFR Cluj are currently sat on the second place in the rank, being at five points margin from Steaua. The team from Cluj haven’t scored in the previous round but a tie on the pitch of Concordia Chiajna, but today they have pretty high chances of winning all the three points. They have excellently played this season and on Thursday they have managed to qualify in the quarterfinals of the Romania Cup, after defeating Rapid in an away match with the score of 2-1.
Deac and Negruț are injured and will return on the pitch only in 2015. Likewise, Susic and Dore will be missing, they have been left outside the lot because of some suspensions. Gregory Tade have great chances to leave the team, the attacker having offers from Qatar and China.
FC Brașov were defeated in the previous round by CS U Craiova on their own pitch and thus ended a series of five consecutive matches without a single defeat. They are currently sat on the ninth place in the rank and the distance from the relegation zone is of three points. They have been eliminated from the Romania Cup by Universitatea Cluj, so for the rest of the season they will only be playing in the championship. FC Brasov have scored in four of the previous five away matches.
Grigorie and Bruno Madeira have been experiencing some medical problems and are uncertain for today’s meeting. Diogo Santos is suspended for all the yellow cards received, while Mugurel Buga will be missing because of an injury.
CFR have won in the previous five direct matches that took place at Cluj. In the last ten years, FC Brasov haven’t defeated even once the team from Cluj in a match played in Liga 1.

Our tip suggestions
Both teams score
FC Brașov have played pretty well on the offensive line in the away matches of this season. The team coached by Adrian Szabo has impressed now on the offensive line, but they have major problems on the defense line. CFR is an excellent team on the construction phase, managing many times to throw in a show on their own pitch. Surely the team from Cluj will have an easy match, most probably FC Brasov attempt to score through Felgueiras’s goal. We believe that today’s match will be a spectacular one, in which both teams score.
