Slavia Prague Prediction – Can Slavia Prague seal place in group stages?

Slavia Prague bring a 4-match winning streak into this important deciding leg in Prague against their Romanian opponents which includes last week’s 1-0 win away at the Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu against CFR Cluj, so the hosts have winning momentum behind them.

Domestic wins over Slovan Liberec, Ceske Budejovice and Bohemians in the Czech Liga along with a 1-0 win away at CFR Cluj in the 1st leg of this Champions League play-off tie so Slavia Prague should come into this return leg in confident mood.

An 11-match sequence without defeat also placed Slavia Prague in a strong position for Wednesday night’s clash, and along with winning their last 4 matches on the trot on home turf at their Sinobo Stadium, it looks like there can be only one outcome here.

In addition, these last 4 home wins have all been to nil, and the hosts have been a hard team to beat at home in the Champions League as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 home ties in the competition.

CFR Cluj Prediction – Can CFR Cluj turn tie around?

The Romanian visitors have reached the play-offs of the Champions League thanks to a 3-2 aggregate win over Kazakhstan side, Astana in the 1st qualifying round, and then followed that up with another 3-2 aggregate win against Israeli outfit, Maccabi Tel Aviv in the 2nd qualifying round.

Just when it looked like CFR Cluj’s run in these qualifying rounds of the Champions League would come to an end when they were due to face Scottish champions, Celtic, the Romanian outfit stunned the Scottish Premiership title holders by sending them out of the competition with a 5-4 aggregate win.

However, CFR Cluj’s one defeat during this recent solid sequence of results was at the final hurdle that stands in their way to a financially lucrative place in the group stage of the Champions League, and they now face a tough trip to Slavia Prague on Wednesday night.

The visitors do possess a decent record on the road though in this competition as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 9 matches on their travels at this level, which was a 1-0 defeat away at Astana. 10 of CFR Cluj’s last 15 away ties in the Champions League have seen both teams score, so we could see more goals in this 2nd leg as a result.


Key-Facts – Slavia Prague v CFR Cluj

  • Slavia Prague are unbeaten in their last 11 matches overall in all competitions
  • Slavia Prague have lost just 1 home tie out of their last 10 in the CL
  • 10 of CFR Cluj’s last 15 away ties in the CL have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Slavia Prague only hold a slender 1-goal advantage here and as CFR Cluj possess a decent record on the road in the competition, we could see both teams score in this deciding leg.
