Last season´s Liga 1 runner´s up FCSB will be keen to pick up their form when they take on Voluntari at the Arena Naţională.

Returning from London following a 3:1 loss in the ECL against West Ham on Thursday, FCSB have now won just 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions while they have claimed just 1 win from 7 league outings so far this season.

Visiting Voluntari are in even poorer form, having failed to win any of their last 6 league matches, including a 4:0 loss at Cluj last time out.

FCSB vs Voluntari Betting Tips: BTTS/Over 2.5 goals

Defensive issues have been the main issue for FCSB in recent outings, with the hosts leaking 13 goals in their last 6 matches (all competitions) while they have managed just 1 clean sheet in their last 7 home fixtures. As a result of those defensive issues, FCSB have seen BTTS in 9 of their last 11 matches, including each of the last 6.

Unfortunately, the visitors are not in great goal-scoring form, yet with FCSB likely to have some fatigue issues, both physically and mentally, following back-to-back 3:1 losses, Voluntari might fancy their chances against an inconsistent home side.

Historically, this fixture has tended to produce goals, with BTTS occurring in 7 of their last 10 meetings. Going back to 2015, 7 of the last 8 meetings saw over 2.5 goals scored, while 6 of those saw BTTS. 

Indeed, it might not be a banker pick by any means, particularly considering the visitors' recent form, which has seen them score just twice in their last 6 league outings, however, FCSB can´t buy a clean sheet at the moment, and over 2.5 goals have been scored in 14 of the last 17 meetings between these teams since 2015. As such, we´ll take both of the goals selections with both sides very much in need of a win to ignite their season.

Liviu Ciobotariu could also be tempted to shake things up with Voluntari struggling form and goals in recent outings. 

Marcelo Lopes and Hélder Tavares are two players who could come into the manager's thoughts, with veteran forward Adam Nemec potentially dropping out, having failed to score in his last 5 appearances.
