Friendly Report: Poli - Mlada 3:3 (3:1)

The white-violets drew once more in a spectacular fashion, despite leading twice by two goals! Bucur opened the score after a Ganea cross in the 14th minute, and Ganea made it two after an Artavazd Karamyan free-kick in 29th minute. Mlada pegged back in a similar fashion just one minute later, before the top goalscorer in the Liga 1 (Bucur) intercepted a sloppy back-pass and scored his second of the day. After several substitutions in the second half, Poli's game became less efficient and precise, allowing Mlada to equalize - first, due to a mistake by Popa, and then after a collective defensive error.
While the result isn't fundamentally bad, especially in the context of the many "new faces", it is obvious that the defense is still just not good enough. Hopefully, things will improve in the next few friendlies.
