U Craiova 1948 CS vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
The German side leaves as favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that it possesses, which allowed it to win the first leg game by a considerable difference. However, if we consider your highest collective and individual hierarchy, we believe that you have what it takes to win at this opportunity. Remember that Romanians are not compact between lines, lacking solvency when marking and defending. Of course, paints to be a game fought at times, but favorable to the visit for its higher quality.
U Craiova 1948 CS:
The Romanians have played 4 matches for their domestic tournament so far, standing out for being combative but very limited at the time of elaboration. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that their results have been disappointing in general terms (0-0 home draw against Poli Iasi, 1-0 defeat against Sepsi as a visitor, 2-2 draw against Botosani at home and 1-3 win in front to Calarasi as a visitor). Before these games, the team played the Romanian Super Cup against Cluj and lost it by 0-1. If we analyze these results and the two friendlies that he could not win either, we believe that the performance of the squad is very poor (1-0 defeat against V-Varen Nagasaki and 2-3 against Ufa). His goal for this presentation is to stand well between the lines, not receive an early goal and score at least one goal in favor. Winning the game is a complicated thing to do, since the hierarchy difference is abysmal.
Continuing with the analysis, you should know that U Craiova 1948 CS is coached by the Italian Mangia, who is known for capturing a risky proposal on the pitch. It is enough to know that it uses systems 4-3-3 and 3-4-3 to corroborate this affirmation. The first of them used it in Germany and yielded 3 goals in total. Now his goal is to fight the game as far as he can, trying not to leave spaces when marking. The logic indicates that the Romanians risk and remain badly unemployed across lines. A detail to consider of this squad is that it has few foreigners, a fact that makes it impossible to improve their football performance.
After having won the first leg by 3-1, the classification of the Germans to the next round is practically sentenced. The difference in level between one team and another is wide, and this can be noticed from the initial stage. Of course, the boys of Professor Rangnick will seek to completely liquidate the key with a goal as a visitor, since that discount scored at 48 ‘of the second half put some suspense to the tie. Remember that a hypothetical 2-0 in favor of U Craiova 1948 CS would give his place to the next round of the Europa League.
For this exit is expected to continue playing a mixed team, noticing the presence of substitutes and some starters in the initial lineup. Therefore, we are confident that the Klostermann side, the Konate and Orban defenses, the Saracchi side, the Ilsanker, Kampl and Demme, as well as the strikers Cunha, Augustin and Bruma will start. From the bench will surely be the stars of the team, who will enter at some point in the game. That is, Poulsen, Forsberg and Timo Werner. As an added fact, remember that Leipzig has caught football pace with the previous stages of the Europa League, since he only played 3 friendlies in total. His best presentation so far was against the Swedish Hacken. In the first leg he won 4-0 and in the return he drew 1-1 after winning 0-1 until the minute 40 ‘of the second half.
The only confrontation between Germans and Romanians took place last Thursday and the result was a 3-1 victory for the boys of Professor Rangnick. That match was already won by Leipzig at 25 ‘of the first half, then scoring two more goals (77’ and 87 ‘of play). If we refer to the statistics, the Germans had 60% of the possession, they completed 23 auctions and obtained 16 corners in total.
