Cluj vs Slavia Prague Match Preview
CFR Cluj will be bursting with confidence as they host Slavia Prague for the first leg of their Champions League Play-offs clash, as they look to build on a shock 5-4 aggregate win over Celtic and finally make their way to the Group Stage for the first time since 2012.
Feroviarii have started the campaign with a 0-1 Super Cup loss to Viitorul and saw a 1-0 loss at Astana immediately after it, but Dan Petrescu obviously did a great job as his men bounced back to beat the Kazakhstan rivals (3-1) and connect an 11-match unbeaten streak – with seven wins and four draws on the records.
Slavia Prague will thus have a tough task on their hands after kicking off their domestic campaign in good spirits, with five wins and a draw bagged in six Czech Liga outings. They have been tough to beat away from home and will surely want to show it off at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu as well.
Red and Whites kept clean sheets in all of their last four outings but we feel shutting down the Romanian rivals at this point should prove more of a task. They have a lot to prove but we still feel Cluj come into the match in a better mood and we feel they can cause an upset here.
We will thus back them to earn any advantage ahead of the tough trip to Prague and going for a Home win at 19/10 with William Hill looks like more than just a lively longshot as they already showed off as a tough nut to crack this term.
We should be in for goals, though, and we expect them on both ends with a lot to be played for in the second leg. We’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 21/20 with William Hill, hoping to see Cluj keep up their solid records in the final third and base such a success on it.
