Dinamo Bucureşti form and stats

Dinamo Bucureşti's struggle is real here at Stadionul Ştefan cel Mare with only 8 points collected from 8 Liga 1 games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 2-2-4. When Dinamo Bucureşti hosts teams that live in the bottom of the table (like Dinamo Bucureşti, Gaz Metan Medias, Mioveni, Academica Clinceni and Sepsi), they have won 1 of 2 matches! All in all it has been a very rough period for Bucureşti who hasn’t won a league-game in their last 13 attempts. Their previous win was against Academica Clinceni, 116 days ago.

In their previous game, the manager M. Rednic led his Bucureşti to a defeat in the Liga 1 match away at Voluntari. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Stadionul Ştefan cel Mare.

Preceding that match was a defeat to CFR Cluj (0-3).

The Bucureşti fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 10 in 8 matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 14 goals have been conceded.
