U Craiova 1948 CS – RB Leipzig Prediction & Picks (16.08.2018)


U Craiova 1948 CS – RB Leipzig FREE PICKS

Also the German Europa League representative RB Leipzig must compete on Thursday evening for his second leg in the third qualifying round. After a 3-1 win against Leipzig in the first leg at home, the return leg at CS Universitatea Craiova is now in the stadium Ion Oblemenco. The away goal of the Romanians, which fell in the fourth minute of stoppage time, the duel remains exciting. But the hosts hardly believe that they can annoy the big favorites from the Bundesliga. Too big were the differences in the first leg. Also Ralf Rangnick is very confident in the progress. The betting base analyzes the return match between Craiova and RB Leipzig and reveals a lucrative tip and the best odds for the game.


As the successor of FC Universitatea Craiova there is the club CS Universitatea Craiova only since 2013. Since 2017, the club is trained by the Italian Devis Mangia. The past season was definitely the most successful in the still young club history: The league ended with third place as well as never before and also won the trophy for the first time in Romania. This allowed CS Universitatea ran the second time after 2016/17 in the European Cup. At that time they were eliminated in the second round of the Europa League qualification against AC Milan. In the Romanian Liga I four game days have been completed in the new season. On Sunday, Craiova scored the first win of the season with a 3-1 win at Dunarea Calaras. Previously, there had been two draws and one defeat. With five points from the first four games CS currently occupies the eighth place, three points behind champions and leaders Cluj. This ended a series of five competitive games without a win for the team of coach Mangia. In the first leg against Leipzig was actually nothing to see by Craiova. The Romanians responded only to the pressing of Rangnick-Eleven. Only two times did the Romanians score on goal from Leipzig. RB, on the other hand, scored 23 shots on goal. The coach will be without right back Radoslav Dimitrov and midfielder Fausto Rossi in the second leg.

RB Leipzig:

In the first leg coach Ralf Rangnick left his team in 4-4-2. Rangnick initially set his sights on the Frenchman Jean-Kevin Augustin and the Brazilian newcomer Matheus Cunha. The goal was the Swiss World Cup driver Yvon Mvogo, who is now to represent the number one Peter Gulacsi in the European Cup. Actual regulars like Forsberg, Sabitzer or Poulsen sat first on the bench. The Bulls took control from the start and put the opponent under pressure. But RB dealt with his chances partly very negligent. Only in the 25th minute did the hosts take the lead through Konaté. In the second round, Leipzig continued to control the game, albeit at a slower pace. The 2: 0 fell in the 77th minute by Cunha. In the 87th minute Joker Poulsen even increased to 3: 0. When everyone had expected the final whistle, Martic could still score in the 94th minute, possibly the most important away goal for the guests.

Nevertheless, coach Ralf Rangnick was very satisfied with the appearance of his team over long distances. As can be seen, the transition coach also works on a weakness of the bulls: Last season conceded Leipzig a total of 18 goals conceded by standards and was far too dangerous even in these situations. In the first leg against Craiova resulted in two hits by RB from standard situations. Rangnick hopes to turn the standards into a weapon. Also at the Football World Cup 2018 73 goals in 64 games had fallen in this way. The philosophy of the coach is also the recognition that possession of the ball as an end in itself or ideology does not win games. If you want to score goals, you need speed, depth and wit. Striker Timo Werner is expected to miss the second leg because of muscular problems in the thigh. Marcel Halstenberg is not fit yet. However, this does not change the fact that the Germans are the clear favorites for betting on the win in the game of Craiova against RB Leipzig betting odds.
