Slavia Prague News and Form – Will Prague deliver at home?

It is advantage Slavia Prague in this tie. It is a 1-0 lead that they hold and with home soil to come. Their precious away goal came from Lukas Masopust just before the half-hour mark in Romania. The Czech side were well on top throughout that first fixture, another reason why they should be confident of getting through. They were always favourites going into this tie, especially with some strong form going this season.

Slavia Prague have gone W7 D1 in their eight games played this season across all competitions. They entered the Champions League qualifiers at this playoff round. They are currently P3 W3 on home soil in all competitions this season without conceding. But if you look at their Champions League record, they took just their second win in their last nine in the competition with their first-leg victory in this tie. Their other win in that sequence was at home against BATE in 2017.

CFR Cluj News and Form – Can Cluj produce another big away game?

Can CFR Cluj be written off yet? Well, they are only 1-0 down and are out on the road. In the last round, they had drawn the first leg of their tie against Celtic 1-1 and having to go to Glasgow, they were pretty much being written off. But at Parkhead, CFR Cluj found a surprisingly good clinical edge and took a 4-3 win on the night to get through to this playoff tie.

The defeat against Slavia Prague in the first leg of this tie is their only loss in their last thirteen games played across all competitions this season. There have only been two clean sheets from them in their last eight, however. The loss also snapped a five-match undefeated streak of Champions League form that they were ticking over on. CFR Cluj came in at the first round of qualification this campaign.
