Celtic – CFR Cluj Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 15:00

However, that game took place over 6 years ago. Therefore, I based my decision on other factors, rather than blatantly looking at their H2H records. Furthermore, in their recent matches, the Railwaymen and the Hoopsaveraged 3.1 and 3.5 goals, respectively. Therefore, I suggest combining the option of a win by the visiting side with over 3.5 goals scored. With the help of my fellow Mighty Tips experts, I analysed their recent performances and styles of play. These clubs fought just once in the past.

It was in 2013 friendly match when the Romanian team celebrated a 2:1 win. Online cricket betting sites are giving solid odds to back Scottish team to win, even better than odds found at football sites, and I recommend you to take it. The Romanian team is also in a nice form currently. Apart from the game they played last week, these teams met one more time. They would really want history to repeat itself, but it is hard to expect that the hosts would miss this opportunity. They are undefeated in the last eight matches in all competitions. In two out of the last three games, we saw over 2.5 goals.

In their last home game in the Champions League qualifiers Celtic crushed Nomme Kalju 5-0. Cluj face an uphill task in the Celtic Park clash and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Hoops party in Glasgow. Celtic are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesdays football match and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

The first game, played lat week at the Dr Constantin Radulescu Stadium in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, ended in a draw as the teams managed to bag a goal apiece. Scottish champions Celtic are set to take on Romanian title holders CFR Cluj at the Celtic Park on Tuesday evening, in what will be the second leg of the third round of this years qualifications for the Champions League.

Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo should come in to replace him at left-back, though his performances so far havent been exactly convincing so far. Christopher Jullien could start in the heart of defence. Kieran Tierney, of course, isnt an option anymore as he joined Arsenal last week. Lennon made several changes against Motherwell on Saturday but he is expected to pull out all the stops for this one.

The visitors are returning as champions of Romania, having built their run in this competition with some strong results at home. They were without key duoEmmanuel Culio and Michael Pereira in their first leg, with both potentially missing out on Tuesday. Cluj beat both Astana and Maccabi Tel Aviv in home legs in order to make it this far, but the fact that they came up short against Celtic could point to problems for them in the second leg.

The hosts have an odd situation where everything is riding on their campaign in the qualifiers. Celtic know that the pressure is on in their bid to land a place in the Champions League proper. While they are enjoying their current spell of domestic success, the ease with which theyve dominated in Scotland has raised the stakes in Europe. This is the only area where Celtic can progress, so it would be huge for Neil Lennon to inspire this side to the group stage after Brendan Rodgers fell short last term.

Meanwhile, Celtic have a strong home record in Europe. That fine form has got to make Celtic the firm favourites, so were backing them for a result in this second leg. They won three of five here in the Europa League last term as they went to the first knockout round, while they have won 12 of their last 14 home qualifying ties in this competition. Theyve won four of their last five in this competition at Celtic Park.

Highlighted Player (Mikael Lustig):

After playing out a 1-1 draw with Cluj at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu in the Champions League third qualifying round, first leg, Celtic will be looking to get their job done in the tie against the Romanian outfit at their Celtic Park on Tuesday evening. The Hoops came from behind to share the spoils with Cluj in the first leg, but it is well known that the Scottish champions produce much better performances at home than on the travels.

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. Theyd edged past Maccabi Tel Aviv (3-2) in the 2nd Qualifying Round and will want a similar quest in front of the home fans.

History shows that once they navigate the third round they tend to make it, while they crashed out at this stage last season. Theyve managed to win four from four in Europe, a run which has seen them score 12 times and concede only twice. The Bhoys are now only two rounds shy of making it to the group stage, while theyve won four of their last six playoff ties in this competition. Celtic certainly took a step up under Rodgers, but they have shown some strong form this summer.

Cluj face an uphill task in the Celtic Park clash and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Hoops party in Glasgow. Celtic are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesdays football match and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. In their last home game in the Champions League qualifiers Celtic crushed Nomme Kalju 5-0.
