Concordia – Dinamo Bucharest 17.08.2012
For 3 rounds both of this teams are unbeaten.I like to fade small teams in this spot, since they come with confidence, and dont act like a desperate wounded animal, in desperate need for points.
That means Chiajna will play more open and that will suit Dinamo.Chiajna is also very close to Bucharest, stadium most likely will have more Dinamo fans than locals, so home advantage not that big here.Chiajna is not the same team from last year, they are new team, with many new players and they didnt showed nothing special thus far, although they have 2 straight victories, but also with some luck, since they scored in last minutes at Severin and also locals missed a penalty in that game at 0-0.Last round they made a good first half against average traveller Brasov and main offensive player Popa scored a double.This week Popa was transfered to Steaua so now Chiajna will be weaken offensivelly.
Match: Concordia – Dinamo B. 20.30h
League: Romania A
Our prediction: Away Win Odds: 1.75
Dinamo comes rested here after postponing last round derby against Rapid since they had a friendly against Barcelona, lost 0-2.Dinamo looked shaky defensivelly thus far and for that they have transfered defender Koulibaly which played against Barca and wasnt bad, most likely he will be used here.Offensivelly Dinamo is potent, young attacker Tucudean started on fire, couple of central midfielders also very active.I think Dinamo is more of a team here and should be backed here in spite of a not such great price.
