Luciano Spalletti’s side has made a pretty bad start to the new campaign overall. Their domestic league form hasn’t been bad, with three wins, a draw, and two defeats putting them 4th in the table, but they will have been hoping for better in European competitions. They were drawn against Porto in the Champions League Playoff stage, and whilst it was a difficult fixture the Serie A side should have been able to go through. In first leg they settled for a 1–1 draw in Portugal, but a complete failure at home turf saw them receive two red cards and lose 3–0 to send them into the Europa League. It didn’t start much better there either, with them having to settle for a 1–1 stalemate at Viktoria Plzen in their group debut match. They did respond with a 4–0 thrashing of Crotone in Serie A, but Sunday saw them lose 3–1 at Torino to make it one win from their last four matches.
On the other hand, Astra haven’t done particularly well in the domestic Romanian Liga I. They have won just three of their ten fixtures, losing five times and drawing the other two. Two of these victories have come in their last two matches, so they could be on the verge of turning it around.
