Unirea Urziceni vs. FC Brasov in Romanian Cup last-16 stage today

The game that pits Unirea Urziceni against FC Brasov and that counts for the last-16 stage of the Romanian Cup – Timisoreana is scheduled today and will be refereed by Sebastian Coltescu. Also on Tuesday Gaz Metan Medias will play against FC Vaslui.

The following games will be played on Wednesday: Astra Ploiesti vs. FC Timisoara, Poli Iasi vs. Universitatea Craiova, Gloria Bistrita vs. Steaua Bucharest.

The following games will be played on Thursday: Gaz Metan CFR Craiova vs. CFR 1907 Cluj, International Curtea de Arges vs. Rapid Bucharest, Dinamo Bucharest vs. Otelul Galati.

The games will consist of a single, eliminatory leg. If the two teams are in a tie at the end of the 90 minutes two extra 15-minute halves will be played. If the tie still holds the game will be settled through penalty kicks.

Viorel Moldovan, the head coach of FC Brasov stated on Monday in a press conference that Unirea Urziceni is the game’s favourite because it will play at home. ‘Unirea Urziceni is a very good team, very well organized, showing a lot of aggressiveness, but I believe that if we manage to be aggressive too and to control the midfield then we could qualify. We badly want to reach the Romanian Cup final and to win the Cup but we have to take it gradually. The game in Urziceni won’t be an easy game; I consider Urziceni to be the favourite because it plays at home,’ Moldovan stated.

The head coach added that he has prepared his team for the possibility of extra time and penalty kicks. ‘We surely trained from all points of view and yes we thought about both extra time and penalties. It will surely be a heated game because we both want to qualify for the next stage. I hope we will manage to have a better performance and to win. It will be tough but if we are determined and focused on what we have to do it won’t be impossible to register a good result,’ the head coach explained.
