Astana vs CFR Cluj Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 9th July 2019
Astana vs CFR Cluj – UEFA Champions League :The path towards the Champions League kicks off in Kazakhstan for both of these clubs
With the team from Kazakhstan being slightly favourites, since they are a complicated team to face at home and play on synthetic turf.
The hosts have, in my opinion, an advantage over the Romanians, since besides playing at home, with the support of their fans, they already have their league underway, being more used to their routine.
In the league, Astana hasn’t been doing well at home, only having won 2 of their last 5 matches. However, this is a different competition, being a knockout competition, with 2 legs, with the team wanting to take an advantage to Romania,
and with the disappearance of the away goals rule, this is a match where avoiding to concede is goo in order not to be at a disadvantage, trying to recover against a team that is always difficult at home.
I expect an Astana side that despite having lost the last match at home against K. Almaty have done much better and conceded on the counterattack and therefore, I expect them to take control of this match.
The visitors from Romania are a difficult opponent, and that is what they want to be.
This is a match where scoring doesn’t offer that extra advantage, which means that drawing with or without goals doesn’t matter, and therefore, the important thing here is avoiding a loss.
Taking into account that Cluj’s entrance on the new season wasn’t good, with the team losing right at the end against Viitorul by 1-0 and that way losing the SuperCup.
On the matches they’ve played on the preparation stage, they didn’t score a lot of goals and therefore, I expect that to happen here, on a match where losing is not an option.

Astana vs CFR Cluj– Prediction and Betting Tip: :
This is a tight match between two teams that come into this encounter with a mindset of a single match with two halves of 90 minutes each
and therefore I don’t expect them to try really hard to score, since their final objective is qualifying for the Champions League.
