In the return match of the second qualifying round of the UEFA Conference League, Shakhtar from Karaganda will host the FCSB, or, to put it more simply, the Romanian Steaua. Who will pass next?
This season, the Miners are performing ambiguously. In the Kazakhstan Cup, they are still doing well-two wins in three rounds and second place in the group, but in the championship they are not getting along at all: after 19 matches, only 19 points were scored, which allow them to take only the 11th place out of 14. The first European Cup match of the season ended in disappointment, in which Shakhtar lost to Steaua (0-1).
Having achieved victory in the first game, Steaua extended its winless streak, which currently has six matches. In them, the team won five victories and drew once. As for the importance of matches and tournaments, only three were official - two in the championship and one in the Conference League, and the rest were control ones. In the first match with Shakhtar, the Romanian club performed ambiguously. It seems that he had the initiative and attacked more, but it is noticeable that the season is just beginning and there is still no lightness in his legs and speed in making decisions.
Statistics and figures:
- Shakhtar have lost in three of the last five games;
- Steaua has not lost for six games;
- In the first match, Steaua won 1-0.
In the first match, Steaua played better, I think that in the second match it will be the same, only the Romanian club will improve its performance.
