Cluj knocked out Astana and Maccabi from the tournament. But it played a draw in Israel and lost in Kazakhstan. Celtic is at least not weaker than these rivals are, and it is much more experienced in European battles. By the way, it is stronger than Cluj either.
If we look at the result of the 1st match, the visitors’ tactics for the upcoming match are also clear. Romanians need to score. Sooner or later, they will begin to attack with greater forces. At the same time, they will leave more and more free zones in their rear areas. And it is just a gift for Celtic. The club’s game style is primitive (long passes behind the defenders and crosses), but it brings a positive result. Especially at home. And the Scots have enough target players in the attack. Forrest scored 11 goals in the last championship. And it was he who leveled the score in Romania. Christie scored 9 goals in 23 rounds of the last championship and hit the opponent’s net 4 times in 2 matches of the new season. French forward Odsonne Edouard scored 15 goals in 32 rounds of the last season, and 2 goals were scored in the new championship. He also sent the ball to the net of Sarajevo. Putting it all together, we can assume that the Romanians, who need to win back, will miss more than one counterattack of the hosts, which will result in the victory of Celtic.
Prediction for the match: Celtic to win
