Steaua Bucharest president Gigi Becali has revealed coach Laurentiu Reghecampf's intention to use a new-look 3-4-3 system for Thursday's Europa League Group E trip to Norway.
The outspoken supremo said on Romanian television that Reghecampf felt he could afford to experiment with the new set-up, influenced by Italian teams including Juventus and Napoli, against Molde - and even went as far as naming the starting XI selected by the coach.
``Reghe will use a new system,'' he told GSP TV. ``At Molde we will play 3-4-3.
``We have never played like this, the positions and players and everything.
``He said he can afford to do it. He told me that this is the most modern system, which teams are playing in Italian football. This one is quickly replacing 4-2-3-1.''
Vlad Chiriches, who scored when the two sides met a fortnight ago, will be joined by Lukasz Szukala and Florin Gardos in the defensive trio in front of keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
Alexandru Chipciu, Andrei Prepelita, Cristian Tanase and Paul Pirvulescu line up in midfield, with Adrian Popa, Adi Rocha and Mihai Costea up front in the team announced by Becali.
The game will be Steaua's 100th in European competition and Molde's 50th.
The game two weeks ago was a one-sided encounter in which the scoreline could have been far more emphatic but for an outstanding display by Molde keeper Ole Soderberg, including a penalty save from Cristian Tanase. Raul Rusescu added to Chiriches' earlier strike.
Steaua's last six European games have brought five wins, each with a clean sheet, and a 2-2 draw against Stuttgart.
Molde impressively beat Dutch side Heerenveen in both legs of their play-off tie to reach the group stage, but their win over Stuttgart was offset by defeats to FC Copenhagen and Steaua.
They top their domestic league with only two games remaining, a point ahead of Stromsgodset and four clear of third-placed Rosenborg as they bid to retain their title.
