Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe has two consecutive defeats in the last stages of the championship, one with the leader Farul, score 0-1 and the other with the title champion, CFR Cluj, 1-2. However, the Covăsnenians come after the away victory against Petrolul Ploiești in the Romanian Cup, score 3-1.
On the other hand, FCSB managed to tie the first three consecutive victories this season, the last at home against UTA Arad. The red-blues are coming after the draw in the Cup with the Aradenians, but their objective is to access the play-offs, so they are obliged not to lose a single match until the end of the regular season.
Sepsi is in sixth place in the ranking, with 19 points obtained in 14 matches, while the Romanian vice-champion occupies eighth place, with 17 points in 12 matches. If necessary, FCSB can climb to sixth place in the ranking.
However, the statistics are not on the side of the red-blues, who have not been able to win in the championship against Sepsi Sf. Gheorghe since November 3, 2019, when they prevailed 2-1 in the duel at home. In May 2019, FCSB won on Sepsi’s field, score 5-1. The Red-Blues met the Covasnians before in the Cup final in 2020 and won 1-0 thanks to Dennis Man’s goal.
Last season, Sepsi won the play-off round match away from home, while the other three games ended in a draw.
