Posts Tagged ‘Andrei Cristea goals’

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

March 28, 2010 3 comments

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.

Round 23 – match highlights

  • Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt – FC Brasov 2-1 (Mulisa 16, Cebotaru 24 / Savic 23)

First win for Filipovic and Ceahlaul, undefeated in four games now, keeps working and hoping for a miraculous feat. It’s getting pretty embarassing for FC Brasov though, who were tipped with a shot at a European spot, after the first half of season and, without losing players (they even spent some money to enforce the team), coach Viorel Moldovan needs to take some blame for thie very poor start of 2010. After three defeats in a row, Brasov is in no man’s land and the lack of perspective will probably further damage the players’ morale and motivation. After Mulisa‘s opener (nice volley with his right foot, from inside the box), Dusan Savic scored his first goal for FC Brasov, but the Moldova international Cebotaru cancelled immediately the equalizer, in a mad first half. The second one was terrible, but right now both teams will gladly put results above the quality of the display.

  • CFR Cluj – Pandurii 1-0 (Alcantara 25)

Unconvincing win for CFR, but a vital one. Poor match decided by the Brazilian centre back who now has the same number of goals scored (4) like his team-mate Yssouf Kone, who’s considered the best striker in the league, but has disappointed this season and will probably part ways with the Romanian club in the summer. Bud has won again the fight for a place in the first elevn with Lacina Traore, who is unsettled by the constant discussion regarding his future, and the Romanian centre forward offered a decent display, going close to a goal in the first half. Pandurii, on the other hand, came looking for a draw, having back on the bench the defensive architect Sorin “Sorinaccio” Cartu, but the experienced coach has a lot of work to do, in order to keep his team above the relegation zone.
