FC U Craiova and Ripensia Timisoara will face Severin today at 7.30 pm, in a match initially postponed due to the infection with Covid 19 of the Oltenian players.
FC U Craiova
It is a newly promoted team in the second echelon of the 2nd League, but it aims to evolve on the first stage of local football from next season.
He made his debut at Miercurea Ciuc against Csikszereda where he obtained a good result, 1-1, despite the fact that his players had at the start of the Thracian match, but Marian Anghelina scored a generic goal and Oltenia won a point.
With 14 successful transfers this summer, a serious candidate for the podium is announced, in Banie arriving experienced players who have evolved in League 1 or good teams of the second echelon.
The situation of the players tested positively with Covid 19 is still uncertain: Taborda, Diallo, Diakite, Avram, Cristiu, Campagno, Stoenac, Munteanu or Baeten being important pieces in the team’s gear.
He comes with a good morale at Severin, the guest technician declaring that his students are eager to make their debut in the new competition season.

Football Prediction of the Day FCU Craiova vs Ripensia
I expect an offensive approach from the Oltenians who come loaded with energy the position after the draw from Miercurea Ciuc.
The guests are at the first official match and could encounter real difficulties in front of a motivated opponent who will definitely start very strong. FC U has a good team for the second echelon, which can pass any opponent, and in attack Nicolo Napoli has inventive, fast and very technical players, I expect them to prove their qualities in front of Banat. Ripensia did not shine on the defensive side in the previous championship, scoring 10 goals in the last 4 away games of the 2019/2020 season.
Bet Tips: FC U Craiova scores over 1.5 goals
