Celtic v Cluj Tips & Predictions
13th August 2019 – 19:45
Match Preview & Team News
We are only one round away from the UEFA Champions League Qualifiers playoffs, and Celtic FC will have to work really hard in the 2nd leg this Tuesday to overcome the Romanian champions Cluj. Last week’s clash was very tense, ending in a 1-1 draw and in our opinion, the Scots were lucky to avoid a defeat. They are big favorites to achieve victory this time though, priced at 11/20 rate.
Neil Lennon was obviously happy with the result brought from Eastern Europe. Celtic were one goal down in the first half, but recovered quickly and equalized through the goal of James Forrest. This winger is having a great time in the qualifiers this season. He was the key man to help Celtic eliminate FK Sarajevo in the previous rounds. The Bhoys are doing well in the Premiership as well. During the weekend they have outclassed Motherwell on the road, winning the match 5-2.
Cluj definitely shouldn’t be underestimated here. They are having a successful season so far as well, having collected 13 out of a maximum of 15 points in the Romanian top flight. They also know how to play on the result – they advanced over Maccabi Tel Aviv even though the final score was 3-3 on aggregate.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
We believe there is a good value in backing the draw here. Cluj were more than a decent opponent to Celtic in the first match, plus the hosts don’t have to actually win this match in order to advance.
Goals Market Prediction
Under 2.5 FT is going to be our selection here. It wouldn’t be surprising to see a bit more focus on defending coming from the home side.
