Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss to Jablonec in their opener, Cluj will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they host Randers to their Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu on Thursday. The Romanian champions are on the right track to defend the domestic trophy, but they have been struggling in European competitions this season. The bad news for the hosts is that midfielder Mario Camora misses the match through suspension.
Randers, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with AZ Alkmaar in the opening game of their Europa Conference League campaign. The Danes head into the match following a 1-0 loss to Midtjylland, but seeing that Cluj have been anything but impressive in European competitions this term, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both Egho and Kabongo are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
