Astra form and stats

4 victories, 6 draws and 5 defeats. That’s what Astra have to build on here at Stadionul Marin Anastasovici in the Liga 1. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Astra, their manager E. Neagoe and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

The Astra fans got no joy from their last match, a Liga 1 game also here at Stadionul Marin Anastasovici: A 1-2 defeat against CSM Iasi. A 0-0 draw away before that, with Chindia Târgovişte the opponent.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Astra as they are travelling to their away game against Gaz Metan Mediaş in the Liga 1. That match is three days after this one.

The Astra fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 18 in 15 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. 18 goals have been conceded.

The manager L. Balint was unhappy after their last game, a Liga 1 match played at their home ground Stadionul Motorul. Arad suffered a 0-1 loss to Chindia Târgovişte. Preceding that game, the 1-4 loss visiting Arges's place.

After this away game UTA Arad return home for a Liga 1 game against CSM Iasi. That game is only four sleeps after this.
