Of course Astra are the better team here as they are the defending champion, but as you can see from the rankings this season is with a lot of problems for them. Most of them because their owner doesn't want anymore to invest in the team. The bonuses for the league title are not paid yet, coach Sumudica is not paid as well. He went to the LPF because of this, but it seems he will wait until 1 December after the money from UEFA will come. Their best player Denis Alibec is suspended after his red from the last round. They have also problems with the pitch from Giurgiu and because of this they have decided to move this game in Bucharest on the stadium of Dinamo. They want to protect the playing pitch for the Europa League game against Plzen
Chiajna are a village near Bucharest. So we can say they have the home advantage somehow not Astra. Concordia are not a great team, but they are not a bad side. They have some experienced players and they are coming after two positive results against better sides like Dinamo and Pandurii. Against the team from Targu-Jiu they should have won as they were clearly the better side. I think this handicap on them is good.
