CSM Iaşi form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Liga 1 this season. CSM Iaşi, who have the most conceded goals (53) in Liga 1, have only managed 2 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses from their games here at Stadionul Emil Alexandrescu. With eight home Liga 1 games in a row without a win, the CSM Iaşi fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the FCSB game long ago, can be stopped today.

The Iaşi crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 2-3 to Astra here at Stadionul Emil Alexandrescu in a Liga 1 match. A Romania Cup defeat was the result before that one, 0-3 away at Petrolul 52.

This is expected to be a close game, with Iaşi perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with CSM Iaşi as a small favourite), we find eight games. CSM Iaşi has won two of these, drawn two and lost four.

Iaşi has scored 12 league goals at home this season, in 12 matches. Goals are flowing in at the wrong end for Iaşi with 25 goals conceded in these matches.

Voluntari form and stats

Voluntari have only collected 10 points from their away games in the Liga 1, after 2-4-6 (12 played).

Voluntari have been frustrated by their lack of goals lately, as they haven't scored in the league since they found the net 265 minutes ago. Jefte was the goal scorer.

The manager B. Andone was unhappy after their last game, a Liga 1 match played at their home ground Stadionul Anghel Iordanescu. Voluntari suffered a 0-1 loss to Arges (placed 7th). Preceding that game, the 0-0 draw paying a visit to CFR Cluj.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found ten similar matches played by Voluntari in our archives, and the results are: four wins for Voluntari, three draws and three defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Voluntari are hosting Dinamo Bucureşti in the Liga 1 only four days away.
