Our Prediction:

Celtic will win

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

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.

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.

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. 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. After playing out a 1-1 draw with Cluj at Stadionul Dr.

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.

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.

A single goal difference was all it took for them to be here today. In my opinion, the Scottish champions are bound to come out on top. Anyhow, they will be facing a much stronger side, and I dont expect to see them making an upset. They triumphed in the 1st leg and drew in the 2nd. CFR Cluj, universally known as the Railwaymen, have triumphed in 4 of the last 5 matches, with the 5th ending as a stalemate. Furthermore, in them, they scored 12 goals while conceding 4. In order to be in the Semi-finals, they got the better of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Their clear step up in continental competition brings pressure for Lennon, who is worked on a limited budget unless he can secure a bright European future for the Bhoys. Will Celtic continue their march towards the Champions League group stages? Neil Lennon is hoping to go one better than Brendan Rodgers last season by guiding them into the last 32 of this competition. However, Rodgers made the group stage twice in three years at Celtic Park, while he made it into the Europa League knockout round last term.

They have racked up 13 points out of the possible 15 so far, and they eliminated Astana and Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the first two rounds of these qualifications, earning the right to take on Celtic in the third. Like Celtic, Cluj are also top of the table in their domestic championship, though their season is a little more advanced with five league games already behind them.

Because of their recent performances, they are my pick for this Wednesdays fixture. The Hoops, as they call them in Scotland, completely out-matched Kalju in the previous qualification round. On the other side, Celtic have triumphed in their previous 4 matches. They triumphed by the total aggregate of 7-0 and showed all of their might. Moreover, in the 2nd leg match, they fired 17 shots, 7 of which were on target, with 2 crossing the goal line.

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.
