CFR Cluj Preview – Can Cluj grab the home win?

CFR Cluj have already come through two rounds of qualification in this season’s Champions League.

In the opening round, they picked up a 5-2 aggregate win over Banja Luka.

Then it was another comfortable victory for them in the second round, taking out Lincoln R I 4-1 on aggregate.

Across all competitions, this season Cluj have posted a W6 D1 L1 record.

They have won all four matches that they have played on home soil, taking a clean sheet in their last two.

In the match outright for Champions League betting, Cluj are a quote of 21/10 to win* (odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021).

The Romanians have hosted Young Boys before.

That previous meeting came recently in the 2020 Europa League Group Stage playing out a 1-1 draw at home before losing 2-1 on the road.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021)


Cluj ended up in last season’s Europa League after failing in the Champions League qualifiers.

They lost a penalty shootout against Dinamo Zagreb to move to the Europa League qualifiers when they fought through two rounds to get to the group stage.

It was only a W1 D2 L3 record that they took in the Europa League group stage.

Their overall record in the Europa League, including qualifiers is W12 D7 L17.

Against Swiss opposition, Cluj hold a positive W3 D1 L2 record.


Young Boys Preview – Visitors to gain advantage?

Swiss side Young Boys are four matches into their new season and they have remained unbeaten so far with a W2 D2 record.

They entered Champions League qualification in the previous round.

It was a 3-2 aggregate win that they earned over Slovan Bratislava there, all the goals in the tie coming in the second leg in Switzerland.

In two of their last three matches (all competitions), Young Boys have scored at least three goals.

In the match outright Young Boys are the current 13/10 favourites* (odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021).

Their European campaign last season sort of followed the same path as that of CFR Cluj.

Young Boys dropped from the Champions League qualifiers and then made their way to the Europa League group stage.

There, Young Boys earned a good W3 D1 L2 record.

The Swiss team qualified from the Europa League group stage, then beat Bayer Leverkusen in the Round of 32.

Young Boys’ European campaign ended in the Round of 16 against Ajax.

But all in all, they played through a pretty convincing season in Europe and that indicates that they could be the stronger of the two here.

There does look to be a decent chance of both teams getting on the scoresheet here.

So for Champions League betting a Both Teams To Score option is at 11/10* (odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021).

This may well be entertaining because Young Boys look like a threat in front of goal.


CFR Cluj vs Young Boys Betting Advice

This looks like one of the trickier matches to call from Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League round of football betting.

But Young Boys look the stronger of the two outfits, so it is the away win that just takes preference at 13/10* (odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021).

They were troubled at the back by Bratislava in the previous round though.


Key Facts – CFR Cluj vs Young Boys Betting Tip

  • CFR Cluj are D1 L1 against Young Boys
  • CFR Cluj met Young Boys in last season’s Europa League
  • Young Boys reached the Round of 16 in last season’s Europa League


Because of that, Both Teams To Score is at a quote of 11/10 for the fixture* (odds recorded 20:12 GMT, August 2nd 2021).

Cluj’s success in Europe this season haven’t been thoroughly convincing against weaker opposition and they shipped a goal against Lincoln Red Imps in the last round too.

We think that the hosts just come up short in this contest.
