FC Viitorul - Gaz Metan Medias
For this match i am making a risky bet, but that has in my mind a solid motivation.

Pick: Viitorul -2
Fc Viitorul are the defending champions in Romanian League and i think they will have an easy start. During the off season they have brought some players with a lot of experience and many seasons played in the first league : Herea, Constantin and Eric. Many people are sceptic about this tranfers but i think they are good additions and they create depth to the squad. They have not made any system changes and still play 4-3-3 and their game plan is based on exploting the flanks. They have two very offensive fullbacks Ganea and BEnzar, who go up very often and they create superiority in the offence. Both also have crossing skills that are above the league level. All their wingers are very fast, with very good tehnique and they can easily break free from their opponents. The players up front often switch places and make it dificult for the opponents defence to make a strategy to mark them. They finaly have in Tucudean a central forward that can score and can be dangeorus inside the penalty box. In their friendlies they proved that they can play very good offensively, scoring 10 goals and to note that they scored twice against teams like Marseille or TSKA Moscow. Viitorul lost the Supercup last week against Voluntari, but they did not put their best team on the field. In the second half of that match they were one man down, but still dominated the match and had chances to equalize.
Gaz metan Medias has lost a lot of valuble players in the off season. Their biggest problem is there defence, where they lost many players and they have only two solutions for central defenders. They lost many players from their flanks where Viitorul is so strong. Both their regular fullbacks have left and winger Munteanu. They brought replacements for them but is hard to create a chemistry in this positions in such a short time. Biggest blow for them is the transfer of Eric to Viitorul. The brasilian was their playmaker and was the guy that always was pushing the team forward. Up front they really lack firing power. They brought striker Golubovic form IAsi, who is a good striker but he is dangerous inside the penalty box and not in this kind of matches when you play on the counterattack.
Viitorul can score at least two goals here and my only concern is if they want to go for a big win. I think that Gaz Metan is a lot more weaker then last season both in defence and attack and i do not see them scoring here.
Viitorul -1 or -1.5 handicap would be the best choice here, but i cant get away from this big odd :)))
