The result was unexpected, especially since Medias surpass a few days ago Dinamo 4-0 in the championship.
Transylvanians to forget as quickly defeat the “dogs” and try to win the last game of the year, with the champion Astra Giurgiu. There are 18 points at stake until the end of the regular season, and the team Tarnava Mare has 11 points ahead of third place 7 Astra. In case of failure, Natural Gas will have 8 points advantage, but changes can occur in batch, stars Eric de Oliveira and Azdren Llullaku the desired stronger teams.
Medias are likely to finish the year in first place in the rankings if he wins the game with Astra Giurgiu FC future will not beat FC Botosani. It’s unlikely to happen, the future is clear favorite with his Moldovan Grozavu.
Players have a moral slightly lower, because they did not expect to lose at home to Dinamo in the Cup, but will do everything possible to defeat the Romanian champions, to depart as nice of supporters and solve largely qualification play-off.

Astra Giurgiu got lucky victory at home to Steaua Bucharest, who beat her 1-0 (Constantin Budescu 90 + 3). FCSB had several chances to score but we missed and finally Budescu scored the winning goal. It was the second consecutive success of the champion, after that 2-1 FC Volunteers.
After 20 rounds, the squad coached by Marius Şumudică begin to hope again in the play-off because it won two successes in a row, while CFR Cluj won only one point from six possible). At the end of the 20th stage, giurgiuvenii CFR were 4 points, 6th place, the last play-off.

2016 was fantastic for “devils black” because they won the first title, eliminated her in the play-off Europa League West Ham United, qualifying groups and more have come down to 16 -I. What will be the winter break is not yet known. Will remain Şumudică? Leave after Alibec and Budescu, Morais Júnior, Filipe Teixeira or Săpunaru? The fact is that the “black and whites” have to force victory in Medias (especially since the Volunteers lost CFR), to be able to hope in the last five rounds of the regular season to catch a play-off place.
