Corona Brasov vs. Astra GiurgiuReally high odds for such a match ! A X-mas gift in August in my opinion to be honest.
Although only two matches have passed, I can say that Corona is currently the weakest team from the Romanian first league. I've watched both of their games, againt Otelul and Ceahlaul. Conclusions ? Their attack is very weak, they rely on one man : Ioan Coman. I know this guy very well. He played for my former local team, Vointa Sibiu two years ago for half a season. He isn't a goal scorer, he's more likely a center, a man who can drag players with him in order for someone to shoot the ball in the net. Ok, sound exciting. The main problem is that Corona doesn't has a man who can shoot the ball in the net.
Also, they don't have a very solid defence, against Otelul and Ceahlaul, they really made some blunders that cost them.
Astra are in a very good form. I waited to post this pick because of their match in Europa League against Trencin. 3-1 victory and the tickets for the play-off are very close. Because of this victory, they can focus on this match and gain some easy 3 points. Tembo, Fatai and Budescu, their main firepower in attack are in a great form, and in my opinion it will be very easy for them to score against the weakest team in the league. So, in conclusion, an away victory is very likely the happen here, I have really high expectations from this match, especially from Astra.
