Shameful Cup exit for FC Vaslui, the latest “achievement” for Lopez Caro’s men

  • The sixth round of the Romanian Cup was kicked off on Tuesday, with a commanding display from Rapid Bucharest, who should get credit for this results, considering the level of their opponents, Petrolul Ploiesti, currently leading in the second division, with four wins out of four, and a team packed with experienced players and some quality youngtsers. But Rapid looks well organized at the back and can fuel the front men from the wings with so many quality balls that the strikers’ names and form aren’t that important.
  • The shock result of the round came on Wednesday, when FC Vaslui lost the momentum gained in the last two league matches (4-0 against Otelul, 2-1, away, at Dinamo), losing in front of ALRO Slatina, a mediocre second division outfit. Lopez Caro, who was very close to find some peace after the latest results, is back in deep trouble, having fielded a strong enough team, which included the likes of Kuciak, Milanov, Adailton and Wesley.
  • Unconvincing wins for Steaua (yet a first win after many games, under their young caretaker manager, Eduard Iordanescu), Dinamo and CFR Cluj, with the latter finding the winner in extra-time through the recently criticized striker Cristi Bud, while Gaz Metan Medias and Otelul Galati leave the competition, in spite of the solid form displayed in this start of season.
  • There’s a lot of work to be done in terms of attitude even in Craiova, where Universitatea put five goals past Minerul Lupeni, a result that hides the current form of Piturca’s men and their sufficient approach that almost got them relegated, at the end of last season.
