Unirea Slobozia uses the Romanian Cup to see the potential of the players, who are not planned for the first team, as well as young players. Coach Adrijan Mihalcea doesn’t have a wide squad, which is why he wants the players to be 100% ready for matches in the championship, especially for the hard away match against Chindia Targoviste on Sunday morning. So they will approach the Romanian Cup by using players who are not counted as starters in League 2.
„The Romanian Cup is a secondary goal, as evidenced by the first game in which we used players with less playing time. We will do the same in the second match. We take the competition seriously, but we can’t focus on it“ said coach Adrijan Mihalcea.
On the side, we have the first league team Hermannstadt, who aims to go as far as possible in the Cup this season. Official Radu Neguț stated at the press conference: “We want to go as far as possible in the cup. The biggest success of the club is reaching the final of the cup, and every year we want to surpass that achievement, that is, to win the trophy.”
All in all, Unirea Slobozia is undefeated this season in the 4 second league matches, but so far they have not met with the candidates for promotion, so this match is a real test for them, because the first league team is visiting them. A test that is also too demanding, because the coach is not interested in this competition, so he will send young players and players with little playing time. On the other hand, the situation is completely different with Hermannstadt, because they are also focused on placing in the group stage of the cup. Therefore, I expect a win for Hermannstadt
