It’s a Steaua-Dinamo derby in the topscorers’ list!

After tonight’s brace (the third of the season) from the mad draw against Unirea Urziceni,  Andrei Cristea joins Steaua’s Pantelis Kapetanos at the top of the best scorers’ list in Liga I, with 12 goals each. Cristea, a former Steaua forward, who’s best moment of his career was a brace against Valencia, is having an outstanding 2010 so far, with 7 goals scored in 6 matches, a record that allowed him to overcome Timisoara’s Dorin Goga and Astra’s Liviu Ganea and put under pressure Steaua’s Pantelis Kapetanos. 

Anyway, the “golden boot” has now four serious and gifted pretenders:

  • Pantelis KAPETANOS (Steaua, 27 years old, 12 goals) has consistency, physical strength, intelligence and a solid aerial game;
  • Andrei CRISTEA (Dinamo, 26 years old, 12 goals) counts on athleticisim, technique and the mistakes resulted from his constant pressure on the opposition’s defenders;
  • Liviu GANEA (Astra – on loan from Dinamo – 22 years old, 11 goals) lacks a quality team behind him, but can take full advantage of his pace in Astra’s counter-attacking style, enjoying freedom to shoot at will and an improved aerial presence;
  • Dorin GOGA (FC Timisoara, 26 years old, 10 goals) has finally got the right partner – a solid centre forward – to take full advantage of his intelligent off the ball movement, creativity and skill.

    I don’t think that Astra Ploiesti is that bad actually especially considering the form of Stratila and Seto lately. I’d personally try Stan ahead of Paulinho as he seems more straight forward and dynamic. Liviu Ganea definately benefits from being the main target man though as Silva got sent to the 2nd team last week.

    Well, I was impressed with Astra as well when the season restarted in 2010, especially with those two mentioned by you in excellent form, I fully agree. But lately they look a bit lazy and got severely punished: now the threat of relegation is back to haunt them for the rest of the season…

    well, Napoli is a pragmatic coach who can mobilize a team very well. Just the defeat vs Alba Iulia was sort of weird as I didn’t expect them to bounce back like that. I think that they could still maintain their position in the midtable if they win the crucial games vs Ceahlaul and Curtea de Arges. It’s definately going to be closer than in the last editions though.
