Botoşani form and stats

Botoşani's struggle is real here at Stadionul Municipal with only 7 points collected from 7 Liga 1 games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 1-4-2. The home fans are hungry for more even though Botoşani have been steadily collecting points here at Stadionul Municipal through three straight draws.

The home supporters saw a 1-1 draw versus Voluntari in the Liga 1 last time out and are looking for a win here. Before that match, a win away at Viitorul.

There will be little rest for Botoşani after this match as they are travelling to CSM Iasi for a Liga 1 game in only four days.

The Botoşani fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 8 in 7 matches. Botoşani have conceded 7 in these home matches.

Argeş form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Argeş, who have the fewest points (3) away in Liga 1, so far with only 3 points returning home. The records show 0-3-4 (win-draw-lose).

Argeş has to pack their bags again for the second away game in a row. Last time they traveled to Chindia Targoviste for a Liga 1 game that ended a draw (2-2). A draw for Argeş before that, at their own venue hosting Hermannstadt (2-2).

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Gaz Metan Medias in just three days.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Argeş as they have only managed to score 5 times from 7 away games in the league. Argeş have conceded 12 goals in these games.
