UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu (Cluj-Napoca).
CFR Cluj was put straight into the semifinal of the Europa League qualifiers this season. And the host won the ticket to the final with a 0-1 win on the road against Djurgardens. They will play on the back of a 13 game unbeaten streak across all major competitions, following a goalless draw at home against Targoviste in the Romanian Liga 1 clash.
KuPS is on an unbeaten streak for the past eight games across all major contests in their schedule. They were put directly to the quarterfinal stage this season in the EL qualifiers. Their ticket to the final came with a 2-0 home win against Suduwa and will visit on the back of a 0-2 win on the road against Mariehamn last time out in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.

CFR Cluj vs KuPS Prediction
CFR Cluj looked sharp at the back in the recent EL qualifier rounds, and they are likely to rely on their solid defense in Thursday’s EL qualifier final fixture this season. On the other hand, KuPS will visit with a shaky defense on their behalf and we can expect the host to exploit that with their ground advantage.
KuPS played above expectations in the Europa League qualifiers when they kicked out Slovan Bratislava and Suduva from the tournament in the process this term. The home win in full-time is a no brainer, but the odds are pretty low. To yield decent returns, the punters can rely on the tip for Cluj to win with a -1 handicap in the encounter.
The safest bet for the punters will be the tip for under 3.5 goals to serve the requirements from the goals area of the match. Besides, the visitor is not likely to see the back of the net and hence, the tip for no BTTS stands a good chance in ninety minutes.
