Unirea Tricolor București


Pandurii Târgu Jiu


  1. The Divizia A 1940–41 was the last season before World War II and the Divizia A 1946–47 was the first one after, so the appearances during this period for Unirea Tricolor București are not official with the exception of the 1945–46 regional championship. [2] [3]
  2. The 1957 championship called Cupa Primăverii is unofficial, so the appearances and goals scored at that competition for Jiul Petroșani are not official. [2]
  3. The statistics for the 1957–58 and 1958–59 Divizia B seasons are unavailable. [2]
