- Football - Romania - Liga I
A very interesting match will be ending the 2011 year in Liga I. Vaslui will be hosting Rapid in a game that is very important for the first place battle. The teams witch loses today has a good chance of getting out of this battle in the next two or three stages. The difference between these two and the first place it is pretty big at the moment and a failure here will dim the chances.
SC Vaslui comes after a hard loss in Europa League and payback will be their aim. This time they will have their main scoring men in the field and losing just a game at home until now is a big thing.
Rapid on the other side wasn't so shinny in away games. They won hard and they are unconformable when playing away. Visitors will miss Burcă, Herea, Glauber, V. Creţu and Surdu. Also Coman might not play this game after the injury from the match against PSV. This will be a big blow for coach R. Lucescu as they don't have a goalkeeper with the same value on their squad.
All this being said it looks like the chances are favoring the home side. Also knowing that they mobilize very well against good teams I like to bet on them. Rapid has problems in scoring and they will face a team that has a tremendous attack. Also owner Adrian Porumboiu was very critic at his players performance along side with coach Viorel Hizo after the elimination from Europa League. So I expect a very motivated side to face Rapid.
