Insights:
  • UTA Arad have won at least twice as many corners as they have conceded at home.

UTA Arad and Argeş 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.

1-0-0 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Argeş when playing away games on artifical turf, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has grass). Their goal statistics from those one match are 2-1 (scored/conceded).

UTA Arad form and stats

3 victories, 3 draws and 2 defeats. That’s what UTA Arad have to build on here at Stadionul Motorul in the Liga 1.

I. Hora was the last player to score a league goal for Arad and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as UTA Arad haven't scored in 315 minutes. Arad are confident in defense, having played 180 minutes without conceding a goal in the league.

Arad travelled for their previous game, a trip to SSC Farul that ended 0-0.

Preceding that game was the away draw at Mioveni that finished 0-0.

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 UTA Arad have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found 13 games) they have won five times, drawn three and lost five.

Arad have scored 7 league goals here from 8 matches, not a lot. Arad have only conceded 6 from their league home games. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. It's worth mentioning that 3 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Argeş form and stats

The visitors are W4-D2-L2 on the road this term. That's in the Liga 1.

Argeş had fun at their own home (Stadionul Motorul) last time out, beating Universitatea Craiova 3-2. Jafar Arias, Kehinde Fatai and Said Ahmed Said scored. World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager M. Ianovschi when Said Ahmed Said scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 46th minute.

A 0-1 loss hosting Botosani before that.

Argeş are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, one draw and four defeats. From a total of eight matches.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Argeş manager M. Ianovschi as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against ASU Poli Timisoara.

The visiting Argeş have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 10 goals from 8 games. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (5 so far).

Head 2 Head

The two teams in this fixture also encountered each other earlier this match year: Argeş - Arad 0-1. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Arad won one game, three matches ended with a tie and Argeş have six wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: four / six
