Unless this will be fixed I don't expect a trashing. Astra most likely will win because ASA are in big financial problems and their players are unpaid for months. They need to make money from somewhere and this can be a solution, but I hope they will be fair and will play seriously. Yes, ASA have changed a lot, but even with these financial problems they have managed to sign some decent players like former Brasov man Javier Velayos, former Romanian international Banel Nicolita or Viorel Ferfelea, a very skillfull player. Very good player when he was playing for Sportul Studentesc in the past. Young coach Dan Alexa also left the team. Was replaced by Ilie Stan, which is not very well seen by the Romanian football fans, but he has plenty of experience and I think it's a good choice for a team like ASA. Also, the likes of Marius Constantin, Gabi Muresan, Emil Dica or Andrei Ciolacu remained at the club. After all the first 11 tomorrow shouldn't be so bad. Astra financial problems seems to be solved. I mean the players were paid and the other employees as well, but the coach Marius Sumudica was not paid and of course he's very upset about this. He's in conflict with the moron who leads this club and that's why he was not paid. Sumudica was sued by his own club few months ago despite he's still in charge. He said he will leave for sure in the summer when his contract ends. I should say that the performances of Astra from the last two years is up to Sumudica which is a very motivational coach and of course to Alibec who almost did the difference in key games, but the striker left the team this winter. They managed to retain Budescu. He is a quality player, but he's lazy and you don't know what to expect from him. Astra are clearly the better team, but having in mind the internal issues between the coach and the board I don't see a trashing of ASA in this match.
