Sepsi form and stats

The home fans saw their team lose the first Liga 1 game of the season here at Stadionul Municipal. Last season these fans witnessed 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss from Sepsi's 6 home games.

The home team returns to Stadionul Municipal after being equal after 90 minutes with Astra (placed 15th) on their last time out; the Liga 1 game ended 2-2. A 0-0 draw away before that, with CFR Cluj the opponent.

The hometeam coach L. Grozavu made a successful contribution in the game against Astra, bringing on Pavol Šafranko who scored the equalizer in the 2-2 draw.

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

At Stadionul Municipal, Sepsi has the goal stats of 0-1 (for/against) from 1 league fixture.

Viitorul form and stats

Viitorul have played one away game so far, a loss. Last season their away games stats in the Liga 1 were 1 victory, 4 draws and 2 defeats from 7 fixtures.

The manager R. De La Barrera Fernández was unhappy after their last game, a Liga 1 match played at their home ground Baza Sportivă Campo Verde. Viitorul suffered a 1-4 loss to Universitatea Craiova (placed 1st). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against FCSB wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Viitorul playing away and similar expectations, we found six relevant matches. Results were two Viitorul wins, two draws and two defeats.

It's early days yet, but Viitorul has scored 0 and conceded 3 goals from their travels in the league so far (1 game).

Head 2 Head

Sepsi-Viitorul H2H statistics last ten meetings regardless of arena: Sepsi three wins, Viitorul three wins, four draws. seven of these ten matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
