Cluj vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic secured the top spot in Group E with a game to spare and they travel to Cluj-Napoca on the final day of the Europa League Group stage with no high stakes to play for. Still, they boast great team spirits and Neil Lennon will surely want to build on great performances of recent, which promises his men in a good mood once again.
Bhoys extended a 12-match winning streak across competitions since mid-October, including a League Cup Final win over Rangers (0-1) last week where a single goal from Chris Jullien made all the difference in a tense contest. They have been scoring goals on the regular and will now have ground to build on in that sense as well.
Cluj, on the other hand, have Lazio breathing down their necks and they have everything to play for as they host the Scottish rivals. They sit 2nd placed with nine points to their name and have shown great character already. However, we have seen them struggling to turn clashes their way lately and this could be more worrying for Dan Petrescu.
Railwaymen have seen a 2-1 loss at Botosani on Sunday and dropped the top spot in Liga I to Astra, which was their second loss in four games (after seeing a narrow contest at Lazio go the other way in late November). They have been tougher to score against at this ground, though, and will now hope to show it off again.
However, we don’t see them beating in-form Celtic at this point and we’ll now rather stick our necks out for a Draw at Dr Constantin Radulescu Stadium, which comes at 11/5 with William Hill and looks like a lively longshot at this point.
We feel Celtic will have to cope in the final third if they’re to snatch points on Thursday, though, and we thus hope for an exciting game with goals. With that in mind, we’re backing a Yes on Both teams to score at 19/20 with bet365!
