CFR Cluj vs Celtic Glasgow Today’s Betting Tips
Cluj struggled to beat Astana and Maccabi Tel Aviv in the first two rounds. The basis was the victories in their own arena. Therefore, it is not out of the question to make a home win victory in the first leg between CFR Cluj and Celtic Glasgow. The Scottish champion had the easier way in the first two rounds, winning two wins against Sarajevo and Nomme Kalju. With a white waistcoat, the Scots go into this first leg of the third round. Therefore, we do not consider an away win excluded. We think that it is quite possible that both teams can score a goal. For the winner of this duel it is then still a step up to the group stage. The opponent in the playoffs is already firmly established with the Czech champions Slavia Prague. This is not the very hard touchstone. Both in Cluj, as well as in Glasgow will therefore be dreamed of the group stage of the premier class. First of all, however, it is important to prevail in this duel and it is not so easy to place the right tip before the first leg between CFR Cluj and Celtic Glasgow. The kick-off to the first leg in the third qualifying round of the Champions League in the stadium Constantin Radulescu takes place on 07.08.2019.
CFR Cluj – Statistics & Current Form
The Romanian football has experienced great times. Just think back to the triumph in the European Cup of Champions of Steaua Bucharest, or to the great times of the national team led by Gheorghe Hagi. The CFR Cluj has had nothing to do with all this. The railroad workers have only appeared on the radar screen since 2002.
After all, the coach exudes but this flair of the great times, because Dan Petrescu was one of the stars of the national team around the turn of the millennium. Since March of this year, the coach is in office and led the club directly to the second championship in series.
Currently the railway workers are in a very good early form. In the still young season in the Romanian league, the defending champion is after four matchdays with ten points in second place. Overall, the Romanian champions are unbeaten in seven games in a row. This is a balance sheet that could well prompt us to intensively test the odds of a home victory in the first leg between CFR Cluj and Celtic.
The dress rehearsal last Saturday could not have gone any better. Promoter Chindia had a 4-1 win, but it was not until after some initial difficulties that it could be sealed. Chindia went after half an hour with 1-0 lead. Dan Petrescu obviously had the right words during the break.
“Dan Petrescu knows how to motivate players. He has analyzed Celtic’s team and will certainly find the weak spots to defeat this team. ” – Sports Director Bogdan Mara
George Tucudean, Alexandru Paun and twice Ciprian Deac shot out the tall away win. Then the preparation for the game against Celtic started directly. Sporting director Bogdan Mara has great confidence in his coach, because he believes Dan Petrescu will find the Scots vulnerability to win home on Wednesday.
Personnel are expected in comparison to the weekend a few changes. Maybe Dan Petrescu will play with a similar formation, as against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the premier class.
Expected formation of CFR Cluj:
↪ Arlauskis – Camora, Burca, Paulo Vinicius, Susic – Djokovic, Bordeianu – Omrani, Cullo, Deac – Rondon
↪ Coach: Petrescu

Celtic Glasgow – Statistics & Current Form
Celtic Glasgow had a cold start in Champions League qualifying. The Scottish Premier League had not even started yet as the first two hurdles had to be taken in the premier class. However, the Scots mastered this mission with flying colors and confidently qualified for this third round with two victories over FK Sarajevo and Nomme Kalju. Thus, the Scottish champion and cup winner has won all five competitive games this season. The Bhoys are no longer just practicing the primeval British style.
Neil Lennon lets his players act much more vertically and pays off through a multitude of goals. Celtic have scored 14 goals in just the last three games. It is almost unthinkable that the Scottish champion will not meet in Romania on Wednesday. Before the first leg between CFR Cluj and Celtic Glasgow a prediction on many goals and also hits of both teams would come as no surprise.
It sounds like the audience could look forward to some hits. They also played last Saturday in the league start in the Scottish Premier League. Celtic hosted St. Johnstone and defeated the adversary according to all the rules of the arts. At the end there was a 7-0 victory on the scoreboard. Already at break, Michael Johnstone and Ryan Christie made it all clear with a brace. After the change Ryan Christie, Olivier Ntcham, Leigh Griffiths and Odsonne Edouard again scored the goals to 7: 0.
“It gets harder and harder from round to round. But we are ready for the challenge. ” – Scott Brown
You can hardly start a new season better. No wonder the focus was on the game in Transylvania early on. Captain Scott Brown is expecting a tricky affair in Romania, but sees himself and his comrades well-equipped to compete in Cluj on Wednesday.
Left-back Kieran Tierney will not travel to Romania for hip problems. In addition, central defender Jozo Simunovic, who is still locked in the Premier League from the previous year, likely in the thoughts of Neil Lennon play no role.
Expected lineup of Celtic Glasgow:
↪ Bain – Bolingoli, Ajer, Bitton, Abdelhamed – McGregor, Brown – Johnstone, Christie, Forrest – Edouard
↪ Coach: Lennon
