Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Cluj welcome Sivasspor to their Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu in the Conference League Group G round 2. Cluj showed character in a 1-1 draw with Ballkani, with Yuri Matias scoring the equalizer in the stoppage time, and, to make things even better for the fans, the Ceferistii defeated Universitatea Craiova 2-0 in their last league match. Croatia forward Gabriel Debeljuh has yet to overcome his injury, meaning that Cephas Malele will continue to lead the line for the Romanian outfit.
The Turks, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Slavia Prague in their first group game. Sivasspor and Cluj seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Ivory Coast midfielder Kader Keita is banned for the visiting side following his sending off in the draw with Slavia.

Highlighted Team (Sivasspor):
Sivasspor is a Turkish football club based in the city of Sivas. The Red and Whites have been competiting in the Super Lig since 2005, but they have yet to win the domestic trophy. The club’s biggest came in the 2008/09 season when they finished the campaign in the second position in the standings, five points behind champions Besiktas.
As a result, they represented Turkey in the Champions League third qualifying round. Anderlecht proved to be a big catch for the Yigidolar in the qualifiers for the elite competition and, to make things even worse for the fans, the Red and Whites were beaten by Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League playoffs as well.
