A hard week on all Poli fans came to a happy ending with this impressive victory over Universitatea Craiova.
The white-violets played some very good football in the first half, but could not convert their chances. Craiova managed to get back into the game in the second half, and after missing some great opportunities, Badoi fouled Dina to gift the home side a penalty, which was converted by Stoica. Despite the late goal (79th minute), Dusan Uhrin Jr. proved very inspired and sent Gigel Bucur on the pitch before a corner kick. The Poli striker scored at the corner and then offered two assists to Parks and Karamyan, for the third and fourth goals of the evening. Ultimately, a well fought victory by the guys, who deserve our thanks for a more soothing weekend than others, of late.
