Din. Bucuresti vs Ceahlaul
Dinamo changed the coach after just 8 rounds (2W 3D 3L), as the board decided to replace Gigi Multescu with second team`s coach, Flavius Stoican. Stoican is the youngest coach in Liga 1 and so far, he had good results: 4-0 in the Cup vs third division side Sanatatea and a precious 2-1 away win at Otelul on last match (2-1). The hosts were 1 goal down at the break vs Otelul, but showed great character and scored twice after the break. Youngster Rotariu scored again a great goal and he is the nice surprise of the team this season, being the topscorer of the team.
The guests have fought against relegation on last season and for most of the season they were involved in the battle from the lower part of the table. This term, though, under new coach Miriuta and with Canu, key player in defense and with Jula leading the attack, they are having a great campaign and have only lost once in 9 rounds (4W 4D 1L). On the road, 3 draws and a narrow defeat vs champions Steaua.
The hosts have just commemorated 13 years since the passing of their emblematic player, Catalin Haldan, at just 24 years old, so they will be really eager to get a win in his memory. Ceahlaul had impressive stats this season: only Steaua have conceded less than Ceahlaul`s 6 goals tally, while the guests have scored in all their matches, but the scoreless draw vs Astra. However, they are traditionally poor on the road, with their last away win coming back in May 2012 and they are even worse on their head-to-heads vs Dinamo: 3 draws and 7 defeats on their last 10 visits to Stefan cel Mare.
Pick: Dinamo B.
