Champions League / Slavia Prague vs CFR Cluj – It was predicted that this could be an uncertain duel in the Champions League play-off where the Czech team will enjoy a slight advantage but the Czech champion has nice advantage before the rematch. They won the 1st leg in Romania by 1-0 and that is difficult to annul for Cluj although we shouldn’t forget how they eliminated Celtic in the third qualifying round. In the meantime both teams won in their respective national championships and are leaders in standings.
Game Slavia Prague vs CFR Cluj begins 28.08.2019 at 21:00 CET
Slavia plays flawlessly for the time being and it drew only once with Karvina in the Czech championship, which can be characterised as a weaker result. Slavia won all six remaining league matches and received just one goal in seven rounds, or more precisely they drew only one out of eight matches as they didn’t receive a goal when they played with Cluj away. The only scored has brought them great advantage in the rematch. In the meantime Slavia won Bohemians 4-0 with the reserve team but now the strongest one goes on the pitch.
Probable lineups Slavia Prague: Kolar – Coufal, Kudela, Hovorka, Boril – Soucek, Traore – Masopust, Stanciu, Olayinka – van Buren
Cluj has passed three obstacles before facing Slavia and it seems they don’t have enough strength to eliminate the last rival in the qualifications and reach the group stage of the Champions League. Neither Astana nor Maccabi Tel Aviv were easy opponents and Cluj struggled to eliminate them. When they faced Scottish Celtic everyone saw the end of round for the Romanian champion. After 1-1 at home their situation was even more complicated but then they won 4-3 away and reached the play-off. That is why Cluy shouldn’t be written off in advance. Cluy won the previous match with Botosani by 4-1.
Probable lineups CFR Cluj: Arlauskis – Susic, Cestor, Burca, Camora – Aurelio, Bordelanu – Deac, Djokovic, Omrani – Tucudean
Betting Pick: Slavia vs Cluj
Slavia has advantage and is great favourite to win, but Cluy has proven itself as a tough opponent when playing away and we believe that the Romanians will play on all or nothing. It means they should score and that will, if for nothing else, make the match interesting.
Pick: Both teams to score
Odds: 2.10 at bet365 (down to 2.00 can be played)
