Man United v CFR Cluj Betting Preview
Nothing at stake for United in this one, while Romanian side Cluj have a lot to play for. United have already secured top spot in Group H, while Cluj are third, but level on points with second placed Galatasaray. So the Romanians may push hard in this one because they have nothing to lose here and they gave United a tough time when they met on match Day Two.

Man United v CFR Cluj Recommended Bet:
You always have to weigh up the attacking quality that United can produce. They have a poor defence. There is no mistaking that, and even Sir Alex Ferguson has been vocal about how lax they have been at the back. The Red Devils were involved in a seven goal thriller at the weekend as they edged lowly Reading 4-3. That is pretty much what you are going to get from United at the moment, goals at both ends. They have produced just one clean sheet in the group stage so far, and it was an extremely poor performance from the Red Devils when they lost in Turkey against Galatasaray last time out. United have won all five previous meetings with Romanian sides, so there is history on their side as well for this one. You don’t expect them to go losing this one at home, even though it may be a relatively under strength side from United ahead of their derby match against Man City on the weekend in the Premier League. An uninteresting night from United’s point of view, so that could leave them vulnerable.

CFR Cluj are guaranteed third place in the group and the Romanians are unbeaten on their travels in this year’s competition. They picked earned two away victories during the qualifying rounds and then beat Braga in the group before earning a 1-1 draw in Turkey against Galatasaray. So there is something there and they took the lead against United when they met on October 2nd. With this match coming at Old Trafford, they may need a bit of a miracle to get into the knockout stage, they simply need to get a better result than Galatasaray manage against Braga on Wednesday night. CFR Cluj’s previous encounter against English opposition in the Champions League came against Chelsea in the the 2008/09 season, losing 2-1 in London. United should be comfortable, even of the posibility of them being under strength and Cluj having to have a go, would look at a Man United -1 Asian Handicap for a price of 21/20 at online bookmaker Bet365.
