CFR Cluj hosts Lazio in round 1 of the Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, September 19th at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu (Cluj-Napoca)
Cluj is a rather strange team. At first, the Romanians managed to eliminate Celtic in the Champions League, but then they lost the ticket to the main tournament of the Old World to Slavia Prague, that is, to the weaker team. It will be very difficult for CFR Cluj at the group stage of the Europa League. The Romanians got into the group with Lazio, Rennes and Celtic, and each of these teams can count on the further promotion more than Cluj. However, CFR always has a chance to score a goal in its field because there is no point in closing - it is foolish to believe that Lazio will not manage to break the most elaborate bus of the Romanian team in 90 minutes. I’m sure that the hosts will try to play their football, which contains sharp counterattacks through the flanks, and they should score their goal. After all, Lazio’s defense is not a bulwark of reliability...

The Eagles started the current Serie A draw very well. In the first match, Lazio managed to beat Sampdoria away (3-0), but then the results went down - a home draw in the Roman derby (1-1) and an away loss to SPAL (1-2). There are still no questions about the attack, which is understandable - Immobile, Alberto, Leiva, Parolo, Correa, Milinkovic-Savic can break any opponent’s defense. But the defense of the metropolitan team frankly suffers because Lazio does not have particularly high-profile players in this area. Of course, the visitors only count on 3 points in a duel with the group’s main outsider, but Cluj can show its teeth, and how are Romanians inferior in attacking potential to the same SPAL?
The fact that a fun match awaits us is obvious. Lazio simply does not know how to play conservatively, so the Eagles are unlikely to pus a bus near their box even after one goal scored. I am sure that Cluj will initially set itself up for an attacking game because there is no other way to beat Lazio. Both teams to score - yes!
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
