The wins are piling up for Uhrin's men and if there is to be another one next week, against Gloria Bistrita, this winning streak will become the longest winning streak in the club's history!
The white-violets managed their sixth consecutive win today, in match in which they overpowered the home side, a team in dire need of points. Bucur was, once more, the player to watch, and it was he who scored the first goal of the match in the 40th minute, after having come close on two previous occasions. The goal was the result of Bucur's persistance, as he intercepted a sloppy back-pass to the goalie and in a very Inzaghi-ish kind of way opened the scoreline!
Arman Karamyan, who replaced his injured brother, could and should have made it two in the beggining of the second half, but his shot was deflected wide by the goalie. As Poli Iasi couldn't muster the strength to come close to scoring, the white-violets had few problems in staying ahead and until trembled slightly when Balba got away on a one on one situation with Pantilimon in the 87th minute, but the young goalie was inspired enough to hamper the striker in his attempt to put the ball past him. And then, in the 90th minute, Dorin Goga received a wonderful assist from Magera, controlled the ball well and stormed towards the penalty area, before managing to place his shot perfectly and round off a solid performance by Politehnica.
Poli: Pantilimon (6) - Bonfim (5), Luchin (6), Cisovsky (6,5), Milhazes (6) - Stancu (5,5), Alexa (6), Borbely (6), Arm. Karamyan (5,5) - Bucur (6,5), Magera (6).
Bădoi (5), Goga and Rusic came on to substitute Bonfim, Arm. Karamyan and Bucur.
This win would have basically put us first in the standings, were in not for the infamous six point penalty imposed by CAS.
