Steaua vs Sporting Prediction 23 August 2017

Tournament: Champions League Qualification
Location: National Stadium, Bucharest
Match date: 23.08.2017 at 19:45

On August 23 2017 at 19:45 in the upcoming second leg game of the final stage of the UEFA Champions League qualification at the National Stadium in Bucharest Steaua will host Portuguese Sporting.

Even though the results of the starting games of Steaua were rather controversial, they still managed to avoid serious mistakes and losses too. In the national championship Steaua won 4 times, drew 3 times and took the third place in the standings. In the first leg qualification game Steaua managed to draw Sporting without scoring or conceding a single goal which is a rather good result for the team. Yet, we shouldn’t forget that Steaua can’t rely on one of their defenders, who can’t play in the forthcoming game because he was sent-off.

As for Sporting, they are doing a bit better at the beginning of the current season. The victory against Guimaraes 0:5 in the latest match was the third one in a row in the first three matches played in the new season. Moreover, Sporting managed to keep their goal dry as they haven’t conceded a single goal and have +8 goal difference now. The draw in the first leg game against Steaua was an actual sensation for Sporting and they will have to try their best in the second leg match.

The match last week was the first one played between the teams. The Romanians aren’t very reliable or confident at the beginning of the new season even at home as they drew in their four home matches played with the same 1:1 score. Anyway, it seems to us that the visitors are more likely to win in the upcoming match.
