It’s the final play-off round of the Champions League as the remaining sides battle it out over two legs to reach the group stages. That’s where the big boys drop into the competition and the prize money escalates rapidly. For a select few teams, the dream will become a reality. Here are our top CFR Cluj v Slavia Prague betting tips.
A Closer Look
Romanian side Cluj upset the odds to knock Celtic out of the running on the previous round, winning 4-3 at Parkhead seven days ago. The sides drew 1-1 in the first leg and that gave Neil Lennon’s troops an advantage going in but they couldn’t make it pay. Both sides went at each other from the first whistle with the game swinging back and forth.
Cluj scored first to take an aggregate lead and also had the last say, winning 5-4 on aggregate. Neil Lennon said his team threw away a chance and he wasn’t wrong. Supporters raged at the manager’s team selection and at the board’s lack of spending. All the time Cluj marched on smiling. Confidence is high in the camp, but it’ll all be for nothing if they don’t beat Slavia Prague over two legs. We’ll get an idea of their chances on Tuesday.
Cluj Favourites to Win
The betting has Cluj priced as favourites to do the business in front of their own fans and backers can get their hands on a decent 6/5 when betting at Unibet. That’s not for us, however. They drew the first leg at home vs Celtic and another draw is 23/10 with the same firm. That’s market best price. The away win looks value and is where our stake money goes. Back Slavia Prague at Unibet and get a cracking 23/10. That’s bigger than it should be after Celtic scored four goals in two games.
