Europa League

2013-02-21 - Steaua Bucuresti v Ajax Amsterdam

A Sports Betting Preview by ROzsolt

Steaua Bucuresti v Ajax Amsterdam
Football : UEFA Europa League: Round of 32
Venue: "National Arena", Bucuresti
Thursday 21th February – Kickoff time: 21:05 GMT+1


Steaua Bucuresti



Steaua Bucuresti will look to turn things around after losing the first leg in Amsterdam (2-0), but the absences of two important midfielders should diminish their chances to get back in this tie.

The Romanian side pulled off one of the greatest comebacks from their history after going down 2-0 in the first leg of 2005’s UEFA Cup round of 32 against Valencia, eliminating the Spaniard at penalties.

That performance has been the subject of a lot of discussions in the Romanian media this week, but the general impression is that Steaua will not be able to pull off another surprise, not without central midfielders Gabriel Bourceanu and Pintili who are both suspended for this match.

The good news for Steaua Bucuresti is that attacking midfielder Cristian Tanase is back after serving a one match ban which means that Steaua’s offensive compartment should look better than it did in Amsterdam, where they couldn’t convert some good chances.

Ajax Amsterdam



Ajax is obviously in the leading seat of this tie, they did exactly what they were supposed to in the first leg, build an advantage without conceding goal or goals.

The Eredivisie champions controlled the game from the off, so Toby Alderweireld’s goal before the half-hour mark and Ricardo van Rhijn’s second half strike came as no surprise.

Ajax Amsterdam holds a solid record in the competition, they’ve lost just once in their last eight UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League away ties, recording five victories in that run.

Coach Frank De Boer rested his attack line in the weekend victory aganst RKC Wallwijk, but Sightorsson, Fischer and Cuenca will all return to the starting line-up in Bucharest.

The Betting Verdict


Steaua shouldn’t be too confident before this second leg, they’ve lost their last six games in the round of 32 without scoring, four of those matches being against Dutch opposition.

The humiliating 1-5 home defeat against VFB Stuttgart in the group stage is also fresh in their memories, so I don’t think Steaua Bucuresti has what it takes to get back into this tie.

The Romanians will come flying out of the blocks and things may get interesting if they’ll manage to take the lead, but Ajax will more than likely punish them on counter attack and that will be the end of it.

Steaua Bucuresti 1-2 Ajax Amsterdam
