Our prediction for this Champions League match:
David and Goliath take on each other at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu in the Champions League second qualifying round, return leg. Cluj are with one foot in round 3 as they won the first leg 2-1, but they can’t afford any complacency in Wednesday’s clash. The Romanian champions kicked off the domestic campaign in style, with the team beating both Craiova and Academica, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win the second leg.
Lincoln Red Imps, on the other hand, face an uphill task in the return leg, and seeing that Cluj are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on the Romanian side. A man to watch in the home side will be summer signing Gabriel Debeljuh, who scored a brace in the first leg.
