CFR Cluj News and Form

CFR’s record against Czech teams is W2 L2 and it has been a challenging campaign for them so far in this season’s Champions League. They have gotten past Astana, Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Celtic. They lost their away leg against Astana but recovered back at home. Then they just edged Maccabi Tel Aviv 3-2 on aggregate after a tense 2-2 second leg away draw. But Cluj did compose themselves pretty well to get past Celtic.

After a 1-1 home draw in the first leg, they looked in trouble. But they took their chances superbly at Celtic Park to get a 4-3 win there against the Scottish Championship. That is just one clean sheet in six European games from them this season though. In all competitions, this season Cluj are W7 D4 L2. They are unbeaten at W4 D2 at home. CFR Cluj have scored one goal exactly in four of their six home fixtures this season.

Slavia Prague News and Form

Czech champions Slavia Prague are stepping out into action here in the Champions League for the first time this season. They have gotten some domestic action under their belt, so shouldn’t be rusty or anything. They are W5 D1 in their six league games played this season and they have only conceded one goal in that sequence of games. Slavia Prague are undefeated in six previous games against Romanian Clubs (W2 D4).

It was 12 years ago that Slavia Prague made their sole appearance in the group stage of the Champions League. Last season they fell in the Champions League third qualifying round and then made it to the Europa League group stage, going on to make a run to the quarter-finals where they were stopped by Chelsea. Slavia Prague has claimed just one win in their last 15 UEFA Champions League matches (D7 L7).
