CFR Cluj vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic travel to Romania for their 3rd Qualifying Round Champions League clash at CFR Cluj on Wednesday evening, looking to build on a great streak of recent and earn an important advantage at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu with their fifth consecutive win early in the new campaign.
Bhoys have beaten Sarajevo (5-2 on aggregate) in 1st Qualifying Round and Nomme Kalju (7-0) in the 2nd, boasting great goalscoring records and building on them as they opened the new Premiership campaign with a 7-0 win over St Johnstone. They’ll now want more of the same and it feel they have a lot to look forward to.
CFR Cluj do come into the match on the back of an unbeaten streak of their own, including a convincing 1-4 win Chindia Targoviste – which has them sharing the top spot in Liga I with ten points to their name. They’d edged past Maccabi Tel Aviv (3-2) in the 2nd Qualifying Round and will want a similar quest in front of the home fans.
Railwaymen have been scoring goals on the regular and will now hope to build on such records too, but coping with Celtic should prove much more of a challenge. They will still be motivated to make the home turf count and we thus hope for an exciting contest in Cluj-Napoca.
However, we do see Celtic turning another exciting game their way and while we hope to see them outgun the rivals in a narrow occasion, going for an Away win at 8/5 with bet365 feels like great value at this point.
With that in mind, we hope to see goals and with both sides coming off some great performances in the final third, we’re now just backing them to more of the same as we back a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 6/4 with William Hill.
