FC Zurich vs Steaua Bucharest: Prediction
Steaua Bucharest have done well their domestic campaign despite their win-less run in Europa League group stage. They currently top the Romanian league after 14 games and haven’t lost an away game. Back in the Europa League, the Thursday’s fixture against Zurich is a must win game for them. But they are yet to win an away game against a Swiss club in a UEFA competition. Zurich are coming on the back of some fine form and we believe they look good for a win against a Steaua side, who are under a lot of pressure.
