Maribor were having a disappointing slump before entering into the Champions League Qualification fixtures. They followed the same in the knockout fixtures and pushed themselves out of it to here.
We can see a dreadful form owned by Maribor when looking at their recent six outings. They are following a losing streak for six games across all competitions. The above mentioned negative run will only help them to have lowest of spirits.
Their Europa Conference League qualification clash will happen this Thursday at Ljudski vrt. The local supporters will expect them to use the home advantage in the first leg to the fullest potential and they should as their opposite side is a strong CFR Cluj team.

Maribor vs CFR Cluj Prediction
The hosting side doesn’t possess anything impressive. All they have is s set of negative outcomes with their offensive and defensive line-up battling each other to display the worst.
Their defeat against HJK in the past round of Europa League clashes were so disappointing. They were so lucky that the option of playing Europa Conference League was still there after conceding back-to-back defeats in different stages.
Now they are down to the last one which they must win or will be out of all these top European clashes. Any team will have their spirits to the maximum when having the home advantage. But here, Maribor is having a weak run allowing CFR Cluj to take some advantage.
CFR Cluj had a decent run in the qualification run and have reached till here recording consistent unbeaten outcomes. This includes three unbeaten away outcomes which will count much in this fixture.
On the basis of the current form both these outfits possess, we are expecting a clean sheet win for CFR Cluj against this Maribor outfit when the referee blows the final.
