CFR Cluj vs Dinamo Zagreb
Europe- Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 26 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu (Cluj-Napoca)
The current Romanian champs were able to progress to the second round after an away win over Floriana. They had to fight for goals against the team from Malta who had kept more ball possession. But Cluj was able to create more chances and chip in two goals, one of those coming late in the second half. But they have to keep their players under control and prevent them from committing silly fouls and getting yellow carded.
The Blues have been prolific in their domestic season last time around. They would want to repeat that in Europe as well. The team from Croatia is known for its attacking unit. In the recently started league season, they have already netted 7 goals in two matches. But playing away from their safe zone may turn out to be a disadvantage against an unknown enemy.

- In that game held at Croatia, the Blues won by a score of 4-0.
CFR Cluj vs Dinamo Zagreb: Prediction
The home team has never failed to score in their last ten competitive fixtures. They score at an average of two goals per game which is why they have been successful in the domestic season. At the same time, Dinamo is also capable of breaking any defense which they have proved time and time again. So we can expect goals at both ends of the field this Wednesday.
The chance of finding a winner in ninety minutes will be very low. But we can expect a lot of goals in this tie since both sides are scoring at a good rate in their recent matches. In their only previous clash, we saw a score of over 2.5 goals also. So I am backing a high scoring game with both teams scoring the goals.
CFR Cluj vs Dinamo Zagreb: Betting Tips
Both teams to score @ 1.80 (4/5).
Over 2.5 goals @ 2.15 (8/7).
