Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After eliminating Scottish champions Celtic in the third qualifying round, Cluj will be looking to claim yet another major scalp in the process when they face Slavia Prague in the double-header. The Romanian outfit showed character in the Celtic Park clash as they came from behind to beat the Hoops in Glasgow 4-3, but they face a difficult task in Tuesday’s football match against Slavia Prague.
The Czech champions are considered favourites to win this two-legged tie and seeing that they have been producing fine performance in the national championship at the start of the season, we are positive that they are going to grab something from the first leg. A close encounter is on the cards at Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The two teams have never met before in European competitions.

Adam Lang is a Hungarian footballer who plays for Dijon as a centre-back. The centre-back is a product of Veszprem football academy and he continued playing for the club at senior level.

Highlighted Team (Slavia Prague):
Slavia Prague is considered one of the most famous teams in Czech Republic. The Cervenobili won the Czechoslovak First League on 13 occasions and they lifted their fourth Czech First League in 2017. Despite winning the domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season, Slavia Prague eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League group stages as they were beaten by APOEL of Cyprus in the play-offs. Sparta Prague are regarded as Slavia’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the Prague derby.
The club was founded on November 2, 1892 and it has to be noted that the club was initially focused on cycling. In March 1896 Slavia Prague recorded their first ever victory, with the team beating AC Prague 5-0. The Cervenobili play their home games at Eden Arena and the capacity of the venue is 19.084 (football). Slavia Prague are well known for their red and white shirts and white shorts.
