CFR Cluj vs Rennes
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu (Cluj-Napoca).
Despite having a squad from the Serie A, and another from the Ligue 1, both of which are two of the major leagues in Europe, Group E has failed to have either one on top of the table. In fact, these two are placed third and fourth respectively, probably giving out a statement that fighting spirit matters more than the quality of the league.
The situation of the French outfit seems more in trouble. They are completely winless in their group-stage campaign, and if not for a single draw, would have held a 100% losing record. With one point till now in the contest, the team needs to pick up the pace without any delay.
One thing that gives fan room for comfort is the fact that they are taking on the second-placed Cluj. As such, a win will not only see them obviously improve their standings but since this being against a direct competitor for qualification, it’s an opportunity to further increase the chances for making it out of the group alive.

Cluj vs Rennes Prediction
Julien Stephan’s men have been a disaster this season. They are struggling to show any kind of form they had produced the last season. As of now, they are placed 14th in Ligue 1 and have just four wins to show from their efforts in 11 league encounters.
On top of that, they are on the road, where they have been winless in the previous five trips, and in 13 of the former 16. In addition, they also lost four of their preceding five games and were winless in ten of the prior eleven fixtures as well.
In addition, the Romanians had won the reverse leg of the tie, on the road, and with the support of the fans at their own stadium, they will be even stronger. Keep note that the team has won their last five home ties.
As such, the upper hand easily goes to the home team. However, taking into account the fact that Rennes is part of a tougher league, plus their desperation to not miss out on qualification, should end in them finding the back of the net at least once.
