Astana vs CFR Cluj Football Betting Tips and Prediction
The game that counts for the first preliminary round of the Champions League, to be disputed in Kazakhstan on “Astana Arena”, where we expect the balance to be the word of order.
Astana: Form of the moment, the latest results, statistics
Astana is by far the most important team in the Kazakhstan championship, if we relate to its performance. He won the last five championship titles, looking for the sixth, given the fact that he is the first in the domestic championship, fighting with Tobol, who is on a draw with two draws in minus.
The team prepared by Roman Hryhorchuk has a lot of experience in European competitions, given that from 2015 until now he has taken part in a Champions League edition, playing three times in the Europa League, in the 2017-2018 edition by playing in sixteen. It is worth mentioning that in the 31 European games played in the field, Astana lost only six times, earning 16 victories.
The hosts of this defeat have a good morale ahead of this duel, given that they come after an important success on the Tobol field, winning 0-2.
CFR Cluj: Form of the moment, the latest results, statistics
CFR Cluj is outsider in this confrontation, as was expected in terms of value being close to its opponent, but is disadvantaged by the fact that it is playing on a synthetic ground where it will not be easy.
After seven years of absence, the Cluj tries to return to the European competition groups. The last time they played in the Champions League in the 2012-2013 season, shining in a group with Galatasaray, Braga and Manchester United, finishing in third place, playing in the sixteen European League. Since then, they played twice in the preliminaries, the last time in the previous season, when they were shamelessly eliminated by Dudelange in the Europa League play-off.
The team prepared by Dan Petrescu started as he could not get worse in the new season with a defeat, losing with FC Viitorul in the Romanian Super Cup, in a game ended 0-1, which seriously affected the morale of the team.
