Otelul – U. Cluj 12.05.2012
Nothing at stake here , just a meaningless game, maybe 6th place should be the stake, but that’s just a small prize for 2 teams which failed to reach their objectives this season which were EL place.
But i’m gonna go with hot team here which is Otelul and which has shown finally their effective game as of late and is trailing a sequence of 2 consecutive wins.Last home win was pretty convincing against a good team like Pandurii, but juist like U Cluj, Pandurii didnt came too motivated, they scored somewhow after a defensive mistake of locals but then Otelul stepped in, put some pressure and scored two goals in the end of first half.In midweek Otelul registered another win at Sportul, which is almost relegated and attacker Didi continued his fine form.
U Cluj had managed some nice results since former attacker Niculescu made his debut on bench but for some rounds this team looks in vacation.They played the most important game of this final rounds, in midweek, against local rivals U Cluj, well it was played only 27 minutes after which some violences between players and stuff exploded and game was interruped and suspended eventually.Local comittes decided that the derby will be rescheduled from 0-0 at a date which isnt established yet, so for U Cluj the final objective of this season ending is to take points from their rivals.For that i think they wont force things here and will come with no motivation,m even their coach suggested that is hard to motivcated his players at trainigs.

U Cluj is win less for some rounds, they lost with Pandurii at home, after playing avery poor game, made a draw with relegation strugglers Sportul after using a mixed squad and also made a draw away at Dinamo with a late goal from Cristea, but Dinamo is just a mess this days.The only things i’m worried here is that Otelul has also a very important game next round,against their rivals Vaslui, and they have many players in danger of being suspended, so they might use rotation as well or play bit relaxed.Still, i think Otelul will be motivated here and should grab the 3 points against a side without motivation and poor form, and also which is waiting the far more imnportant derby game with CFR.
