There should be a significant difference in quality between these teams based on table positions so far, with Hermannstadt leading UTA Arad by 2 points.

Hermannstadt and UTA Arad should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

12-13-15 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for UTA Arad when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 40 matches are 53-50 (scored/conceded).

Hermannstadt form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Hermannstadt's two home games in the Liga 1 so far this season, having collected 4 points here at Stadionul Municipal Gaz Metan.

Hermannstadt drew their last game, 1-1 away at Gaz Metan Mediaş (placed 11th). Before that, Hermannstadt played out a draw 1-1 when visiting Gaz Metan Mediaş.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Hermannstadt have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found six games) they have won three times, drawn two and lost one.

At Stadionul Municipal Gaz Metan, Hermannstadt has the goal stats of 4-3 (for/against) from 2 league fixtures.

UTA Arad form and stats

UTA Arad are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Liga 1, having played 3 games and collected 5 points (1 win, 2 draws and 0 losses).

Did you know that the longest clean sheet streak is 1816 minutes? This record is held by Mazaropi when he played in Vasco da Gama. Arad goalkeeper Denis Rusu is eager to challenge this, with his 186 minutes of keeping balls out from the net.

Arad played 0-0 against Academica Clinceni in their previous match. Prior to that result Arad won their away game at Dinamo Bucureşti. The scoreline was 1-0.

We have checked recent matches where Arad have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those four games were zero victories, one draw and three defeats.

Arad have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 3 league away games 3 goals have been scored. It's not easy to score on UTA Arad as they have only conceded 2 goals from these away games.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last two meetings): Hermannstadt won one game, one match ended with a draw and UTA Arad has zero wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: zero / two
