Astana – CFR Cluj
The Romanian champion will start his European adventure today and the first opponent of CFR Cluj is Astana, Kazakhstan champion. The first match of the two clubs will take place on the Nur-Sultan Arena and we have to emphasize that Astana is much more physically fit because this summer they played several matches in the domestic championship. The victories in the last five matches increased the morale of the players trained by Roman Grygorchuk, while the confidence of those from CFR Cluj was affected by the failure of the Romanian Supercup match.
During the pre-season period, the Romanian champion won several matches against strong opponents such as Sparta Prague and Mlada Boleslav, which means that the level of footballers at CFR is quite high. A very large influence in determining the final result may have the surface of the field, the arena on which Astana plays does not have natural grass and CFR Cluj will have to adapt its strategy for the synthetic field.
In this summer CFR Cluj brought several players from Gaz Metan Medias, young footballers who want to affirm and become favorites in the opinion of Dan Petrescu. The favorite to win in this confrontation is Astana, but the option under 2.5 goals scored, which is quoted with 1.50, is our recommendation for those who want to earn some extra money.
