Slavia Prague vs Cluj Match Preview
Slavia Prague have been in fine form early in the new campaign and they now hope to capitalize on it as they look to make a return to the Champions League Group Stage 12 years after their debut, with a 0-1 win in Cluj-Napoca to build on as they host the Romanian rivals for a return match on Wednesday.
A peach from Lukas Masopust was enough for the Red and Whites to snatch an advantage at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu, as they build on an 11-match unbeaten streak since early July. They’ve beaten Slovan Liberec (1-0), Ceske Budejovice (0-3), and Bohemians (4-0) in their last four outings too, keeping clean sheets on all of the occasions.
Cluj will now have to look for an upset but they’re obviously in for a tough task despite returning to the winning ways with a very confident display against Botosani (4-1) over the weekend, where Michael Pereira, Ciprian Deac (x2), and Adrian Paun all made it on the scoresheet.
Feroviarii have been scoring on the regular and will now have high hopes they can do the same at Sinobo Stadium, having found the net on all of their last five trips with a great total of 15 goals along the way. They will obviously be no sitting ducks and Dan Petrescu has a lot to build on as well.
Still, we don’t see them causing an upset and we’ll now back Slavia Prague to punch their ticket to the Group Stage in an exciting contest, going for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to an enticing 11/4 with Paddy Power.
With that in mind, we’re hoping for more goals this time around and we’re also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 21/20 with Unibet. We’ve seen both sides enjoying such clashes lately and this does feel like a solid approach to the fixture just as well.
