Champions League predictions for CFR Cluj vs Slavia Praha
CFR Cluj faces Slavia Praha at the start of the Champions League playoffs. The match will be played on 20 August, Tuesday, starting at 20:00 UK at Dr. Constantin Rădulescu in Cluj-Napoca.
Champion of Romania CFR Cluj took the big surprise in the third preliminary round of the Champions League. Dan Petrescu alumni sacked Scottish champion Celtic after winning 4:3 at Celtic Park a week ago. Cluj lagged 2:3 until the 80th minute and was out of the tournament, but French striker Billel Omrani signed for the second time in the match and made the result 3: 3. Celtic have embarked on attacks since, after a 1-1 draw on Romanian soil, they needed a goal to move forward. At the end of the match Cluj used one of his chances to counter-attack and George Țucudean brought the success of his team. Thus, the CFR Cluj team will struggle to enter the group stage of the tournament against Czech Slavia Praha. Dan Petrescu’s team has had two wins in their last three Champions League home games, all of which are from this season. Cluj began its participation in the first preliminary round of the tournament, eliminating more teams from Astana and Maccabi Tel Aviv, making a serious request to participate in the group phase.
The team of Slavia Praha reached the Европа-finals of the Europa League last season, where it was eliminated from the English Chelsea. Jindřich Trpišovský’s team left a mark on the second-most club tournament in Europe this spring, and this autumn has ambitions to compete with the strongest teams on the Old Continent, qualifying for the Champions League group stage. The Czech champion begins participating in the tournament directly from the playoffs. CFR Cluj matches will be a serious test for the Czechs, who are in good form with 4 wins in their last 5 games. In my opinion, Slavia Praha will be able to score in this match, as he has gained a lot of experience in Europe last season and played strongly as a guest, but I expect the team of Cluj to sign, which is why I will bet on Both Teams To Score.
