Tonight Rapid Suceava and Petrolul Ploiesti will meet in a match in the round of 16 of Romania football Cup.
Rapid Suceava is one of the revelation of this competition. The second league team reached the round of 16 after they won against Stiinta Miroslava, Cetatea Targu Neamt and Gaz Metan Medias, they were defeated only one time this season, but they rank 5 in the championship. The last 6 official matches played by Rapid Suceava ended with goals scored by both teams, the hosts of today’s meeting having one of the best offensive line in the second league.
Dorin Semeghin said that his team from Suceava didn’t have nothing to lose, Petrolul being the team which will be under pressure. The match will took place in Botosani, but a lot of Rapid Suceava’s fans will be on the stadium.
Petrolul is at the moment one of the best teams in Romania. Gigi Multescu’s team is undefeated in the previous 5 official matches, and now starts with the first chance in order to qualify in the quarter finals in Romania Cup. “Yellow wolfs” eliminated Unirea Jucu in the previous tour, wining with a score of 3-0 in away matches. The hosts made a pretty good offensive game this season, their main player being Toto Tamuz, player which is in excellent shape.
Fanchone is injured and won’t play until spring next year. Also, Mustrivar is in recovery and Gigi Multescu might let him stay home for this match.
Rapid Suceava – Petrolul Ploiești betting odds:
Final results: 7.50 4.75 1.33
Total goals (under/over 2.5): 2.10 1.70
Our tip suggestions
Under 2.5 goals
Even though at the first sight they seem to be the favorite team to win, Petrolul won’t have a pretty easy mission. Most probably Gigi Multescu will send on the pitch more spear players, so Rapid Suceava have the chance to make a surprise tonight. Most certainly they will prefer to defense themselves and strike on the counter attack, just like they did in the previous tour. We expect to see more problems at Petrolul in this match especially because they are going to play with spear players, so tonight we bet on an under 2.5 goals.
