2012-03-18 - Steaua Bucuresti v Astra Ploiesti

A Sports Betting Preview by ROzsolt

Steaua Bucuresti v Astra Ploiesti
Football : Romania : Liga 1
Venue: Stadionul Ghencea, Bucuresti
Sunday 18th March – Kickoff time: 20:30 GMT+2


Steaua (4th W-11 D-5 L-4)



Steaua is the only team from the top 4 that won both games since the second part of the championship began. Both were narrow wins (1-0) and their game wasn’t impressive, but they got the job done and managed to recover some of the difference that stands between them and rivals Dinamo.

Ilie Stan’s team will return to Ghencea, the stadium where Steaua won their most important matches in their history. Steaua’s owner refused to pay the overpriced monthly rent and which resulted in Steaua playing their home games in Ploiesti, but it seems that the issue has been solved.

If Steaua continues this winning trend they could have an important role in the battle for the title. In fact, as a result to Rapid’s loss to Chiajna on Friday Steaua could make their way up to the podium for the first time since September.

Cristian Tanase will be back for Steaua after serving a one match ban in the match against Universitatea Cluj.

Steaua’s home form:

19.12.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 18 Steaua 1 - 0 Vointa Sibiu
10.12.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 17 Steaua 1 - 1 CFR Cluj
26.11.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 15 Steaua 1 - 0 FC Brasov
06.11.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 13 Steaua 2 - 1 Concordia Chiajna
24.10.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 11 Steaua 0 - 0 Rapid

Astra Ploiesti (9th W-7 D-7 L-6)



There’s been a lot of changes at Astra in the winter break, the most important being Antonio Conceicao’s arrival as the head coach. Conceicao is CFR Cluj’s former coach, he actually worked for CFR in the season they’ve won the title (2010).

I think bringing him was a good decision, he always new hot to form competitive teams, it remains to be seen if he can do the same here. With Conceicao Astra lost their first match on the road to Vointa Sibiu, but managed to collect all three points last weekend against Mioveni, despite conceding a goal in the first minute of the match.

Astra signed some interesting players as well, one of them is Juliano Spadacio, the Brazilian midfielder who played 93 games for Rapid Bucuresti scoring 21 goals in the process. He should add a lot of quality to Astra’s midfield, he was one of Rapid’s best players in the last decade.

Astra’s away record:

03.03.2012 Liga 1 Etapa 19 Vointa Sibiu 1 - 0 Astra Ploiesti
03.12.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 16 FC Brasov 2 - 0 Astra Ploiesti
21.11.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 14 Concordia Chiajna 0 - 1 Astra Ploiesti
30.10.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 12 Rapid 3 - 2 Astra Ploiesti
14.10.2011 Liga 1 Etapa 10 Otelul Galati 1 - 1 Astra Ploiesti

The Betting Verdict


Antonio Conceicao recorded one of the most important results in his coaching career here in Ghencea, he managed to humiliate Steaua in Bucharest with an amazing 3-0 victory on 6th of March last year as Brasov’s coach. As a result of that match Steaua’s coach Marius Lacatus was sacked.

I’m sure that repeating that results is almost impossible at the moment, as Astra’s main striker (Fatai) is suspended for this match. Conceicao may have to move midfielder Rui Miguel to a more advanced position in order to fill the gap.

The 1-0 victory in Cluj against Universitatea was a huge boost to Steaua’s morale, but their game is not too convincing at the moment and they’ve always had problems against Astra Ploiesti. Steaua only won one of the last 5 clashes with Astra and the team from Ploiesti won the reverse fixture earlier this season.

I’d say that there are enough reasons to back Astra not to lose here, I wouldn’t risk betting on Steaua at 1.5 even though a home win by one goal wouldn’t surprise anyone. I’m saying that the odds do not reflect the strength of these two teams at the moment, which is why I’ll take Astra on handicap.

The Pick :

Steaua Bucuresti 1-1 Astra Ploiesti


HANDICAP BETTING :

Take Astra AH +1.25 at 1.81 at Pinnacle
Confidence: 7/10
