CFR Cluj – Astana
For many years, no club in Romania has managed to qualify for the Group stage of UEFA Champions League and CFR Cluj is forced to win today against the Kazakhstan champion Astana to continue its European tour. For CFR Cluj, the last two weeks were very crowded after the Supercup game followed the Astana away match where CFR was defeated by 1-0 and Sunday the Romanian champion record a draq against Poli Iasi in the first round of the new Liga I season.
Probably many players still do not have the physical condition to cope with this program with a very short break between matches and Dan Petrescu must choose very carefully the line-up of this match. Astana has the big advantage of not having had a confrontation scheduled this weekend, so the footballers prepared by Roman Grygorchuk have had more time to prepare for this second leg.
Astana succeeded in 2015 to qualify for the Group stage of UEFA Champions League, a historic performance for a Kazakh club in view of the conditions of this country. However, the experience of CFR Cluj and fans’ support should be two strong arguments that will lead you to a success of the champion of Romania, a forecast that will bring the 1.65 odds and can bring CFR a qualification in the next stage of the competition .
