Saturday starting 12:00 GMT, Stadium Anghel Iordanescu from Voluntari will host the match Sepsi OSK vs Concordia Chiajna. At that time there will be 7 °C and a partly sunny sky.
Sepsi OSK are ranked #12/14 but they’re just starting to look good as they’ve been “crowned mercato-champions” with 10 new players signed in the winter break, including Albert Dalmau, a 25 year-old defender raised by FC Barcelona. The others are Jure Obsivac, Daisuke Sato, Ousmane Viera, Alexandru Chirita, Yasin Hamed, Filipe Oliveira, Benjamin Kuku si Marko Simonovski, all of them playing the last game away at Craiova (0-1) except Alexandru Chirita. At home they are on a two win streak after taking down Poli Timisioara (1-0) and Poli Iasi (2-1). There are no injuries reported and they are looking to improve their home win-streak record.
Concordia Chiajna are ranked #11/14 in Liga 1 and are looking to find as many points as they can before they playout point cut. They are coming after a crazy home game against Dinamo Bucharest, which exploded after a goalless first half into a 7 goal fest ending 3-4. Dinamo never lost the lead but Concordia showed what they are capable of. After 8 away games in a row in which they managed to score, this task proved to be too hard for them in their last two games against Viitorul Constanta and CFR Cluj, where they only had 5 shots on goal without scoring in both games combined. However, they seem to find the net against lower-mid tier teams, destroying the likes of Juventus Bucharest (5-0), a team similar to Sepsi in regards to points and goals scoared. Their last visits to Bucharest produced a shock after they took down Dinamo (3-2) and lost to FCSB (1-2) even though they had a higher possession and more shots on goal in the second half.

In conclusion, i think both teams are eager to get points and will find themselves attacking and looking for the victory rather than locking themselves up.
