Craiova University-FC Argeș: Match view, teams and Picks

Universitatea Craiova-FC Argeș

U Craiova

1 March 2023


FC Arges

It will be a very nerve-wracking match on March 1, in Bănie. CS Universitatea has less and less chances to dream of the title, the fans of the “juves” are already starting to challenge Eugen Neagoe, who arrived in the winter. The Doljeni are in 5th place, with 45 points, a victory being crucial for staying (at least) around the podium. Beyond, FC Argeș is in the playoff spot, 14th, with 26 points, Marius Croitoru being asked to resign from the stands in the last round.

In terms of direct games at the official level, CS Universitatea has a 4-3 advantage in victories, out of eight confrontations. But, the people from Pitesti won in the last two “direct games”, both scheduled in Trivale. In the fall of 2022, the “purple and white” won 1-0 in the SuperLiga, respectively 2-1 in the Romanian Cup.

  U Craiova In the last round, it was confirmed that the Oltenians are doing very poorly “outside”, losing 0-1 to FC Voluntari, a team that had lost in all five matches played until then, in 2023!

Olteni hopes to confirm their good record at home, where they have collected 29 points so far. And Neagoe’s students have three clean-sheet victories in a row, on their own ground. The last team defeated in Bănie was the title champion, CFR (2-0).

It is curious that although it has many offensive players in its composition, CS Universitatea is one of the teams with matches with few goals. In total, we find only nine games with “Over 2.5 goals” in this championship against the “white-blues”.


FC Argeș is not getting out of the crisis. The last win in the SuperLiga dates back to October 30, 1-0 at UTA, in Marius Croitoru’s debut on the bench for Pitesti. The “white and purple” lost in the last round, 1-2, at home against FCSB.

The only positive thing for the Argesans would be that they still collected four draws in the last seven rounds.

Away from home, FC Argeș recorded only two victories in the current season. However, it is interesting that the “white-violets” scored a goal in six of the last seven trips.
