Gaz Metan Mediaş will welcome Rapid Bucureşti to Stadionul Municipal Gaz Metan for a matchday 24 fixture in Romania Liga I. The last meeting on 17th September 2021 ended in a Gaz Metan Mediaş 2-1 win. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. Gaz Metan Mediaş has won 1 match, and Rapid Bucureşti triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 67% of the time.
Gaz Metan Mediaş’s latest fixture against Voluntari ended in an away 3-1 loss. I expected more from Gaz Metan Mediaş. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Gaz Metan Mediaş set the tone early and scored in the 45 minute.
Rapid Bucureşti’s recent game against UTA Arad ended in a home 1-1 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Rapid Bucureşti deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 76th minute.
Although Gaz Metan Mediaş is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 18% home clean sheets.
Rapid Bucureşti has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Rapid Bucureşti has collected 1.45 points on average per away game, compared to 1.42 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Rapid Bucureşti kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Gaz Metan Mediaş or Rapid Bucureşti to win.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.32 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 36% of Gaz Metan Mediaş’s home and Rapid Bucureşti’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
