Floriana vs Cluj Prediction & Match Preview

Floriana vs CFR Cluj
Champions League 2020/21 (First qualifying round)
Date: Wednesday, 19 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Centenary Stadium.

The Railwaymen are the reigning champions of the Romanian League, and they have been in phenomenal form lately. They are the firm favorites to progress to the next round of the qualification phase, considering that they are pitted against a team from the Maltese League.

The Tal-Irish may be the best that Malta has to offer, but the country itself, and its football culture as well as teams are considered far inferior to their other European counterparts. In fact, they are placed a lowly 45th in terms of UEFA Coefficients that has ranked a total of 55 leagues in the continent.

To be frank, the team is just in this qualification phase, just to gain some experience – which they desperately lack.

By all means, expect a winning performance from CFR Cluj.

Floriana vs CFR Cluj: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • This is the first time these two teams are locking horns with each other.

Floriana vs CFR Cluj: Prediction

The Railwaymen are on a four-match winning run, and they also had won eight of their former ten fixtures. Moreover, they also were unbeaten in 17 of their preceding 18 overall games, and have not lost a single road trip this whole year so far.

Going on, they also had scored two or more goals in eight of their preceding ten overall games, and did the same in their last four away fixtures on the trot.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in seven of their previous nine matches, and had won just one of their preceding six home appearances. Moreover, they have not played a single competitive game since March, and obviously are rusty.

In addition, they are also from a far inferior league compared to that of the Romanian top flight, and taking into account all these factors, expect a CFR Cluj win this Wednesday.
