The team comes to this match after a home win against Sepsi by (2-0). In the last 10 away matches Steaua Bucureşti has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2.

As well as his opponent, Steaua Bucharest was already playing in the Europa League, being that in the previous phase he eliminated Hajduk Split, after a draw by 0x0 and a victory by the score of 2×1. No doubt the difficulty will now be much greater and therefore needs to have much more attention than normal, because any neglect can result in goals and consequently in a possible elimination. The first match will be away from home and he surely wants the advantage, so he will try to give his best on the field to return home with at least a draw with goals.
