Romanian teams try to survive in Europa League

Dinamo vs. Galatasaray


Dinamo will play against Galatasaray in Europa League’s Group F. The game, set to be played in Bucharest, is scheduled this evening at 8 PM. Galatasaray previously defeated Dinamo, score 4-1. Only a win will keep alive Dinamo’s chances of reaching the European spring, with any other result basically taking it out of the race for qualification.


Fenerbahce vs. Steaua


Steaua left for Istanbul on Wednesday morning, with the team set to play against Fenerbahce SK this evening at 10.05 PM. Fenerbahce previously defeated Steaua, score 1-0. This is a crucial game for Steaua too. A defeat would take it out of the race for qualification for good, while a draw would leave it with only theoretical chances to qualify. Steaua’s players will leave for Bucharest immediately after the game, being scheduled to land on Bucharest’s Henri Coanda Airport at 3 AM on Friday.


CFR Cluj vs. Sparta Prague


CFR Cluj will play a home-side game against Sparta Prague in Europa League’s Group K. The Czech club won the previous encounter, score 2-0, but CFR Cluj has to win today’s game. CFR Cluj striker Yssouf Kone will miss out today’s game because of an older injury.


Anderlecht vs. FC Timisoara


FC Timisoara will play against Anderlecht Brussels in Belgium in a game counting for Group A of the Europa League. The two teams registered a goalless draw in their previous encounter. Timisoara’s head coach Ovidiu Sabau is determined to adopt a more offensive strategy but the Belgian team will do the same. Moreover, Timisoara’s opponents are convinced that they will face a defensive team and have adapted their strategy in view of that. Although Dinamo Zagreb was penalized 3 points for its fans’ violent acts before the game against Timisoara, the Romanian team faces a precarious situation in Group A. A defeat would take FC Timisoara out of the race.
