Viitorul form and stats

The story so far in the Liga 1 for Viitorul, who have the fewest clean sheets (1) at home in Liga 1, at their home stadium (Stadionul Central) is 3 wins, 7 draws and 3 defeats. Their last two home games have resulted in two points, meaning they were both draws.

Viitorul are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 270 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by J. Tsoumou).

In their previous game, the manager M. Rednic led his Viitorul to a defeat in the Liga 1 match away at Botosani. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Stadionul Central. 0-0 away at Hermannstadt before that.

There's a new fixture coming up fairly quickly for Viitorul, as the Liga 1 home game vs Gaz Metan Medias is only one day away.

The Viitorul fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 20 goals in 13 league matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 20 goals have been conceded.
