CFR Cluj vs Lincoln Red Imps

UEFA Champions League
Asian Handicap
Pick: 2 (+2.5)
Odds: 1.6
Stake: 1

Match date: 28/07/2021

I already wrote about this fixture a week ago. My winning pick was Lincoln Red Imps not to lose with more than one goal in the first match. Indeed, CFR Cluj won with 2:1. The Gibraltar outfit surprisingly took an 1:0 lead thanks to an excellent team goal scored by Marco Rosa. However, Gabriel Debeljuh netted twice in the second half to secure the victory for Cluj. According to me, it is clear the Romanians will progress, however, I expect the guests to cover the handicap again. Only this time the line is two goals.

CFR Cluj started the new season with a painful loss in the Super Cup match with Universitatea Craiova. I've already mentioned about the situation where they changed too many coaches in a short period - Dan Petrescu left the club in the finish of the last season, then Edward Iordanescu lead the team few months and now Marius Sumudica is in charge. About the European campaign, CFR Cluj had big issues against Bosnian champions Borac Banja Luka in the first round. Cluj won 3:1 at home and should be eliminated after lost 2:0 as guests, but instead became the first team to benefit from the abolition of the much-debated away goals rule in UEFA competitions. Sumudica has the majority of his players available, only Camora and Billel Omrani are rated as doubtful due to minor injuries.

Lincoln Red Imps are the best club in Gibraltar with 24 league titles. They are total outsiders, but should not be underestimated. Lincoln Red Imps were good in the previous round and wrote the history by eliminating Fola Esch from Luxembourg with a 7:2 aggregate victory. Coach Mick McElwee's men are free from the pressure and nobody expect a miracle. However, I am sure they will fight with all they had not to suffer a catastrophe. And I believe they are able to cover the handicap, meaning they won't lose with more than two goals. Of course, I expect Cluj coach Sumudica to rest some of his key players in the finish of the match. Cluj have important league game with Chindia Targoviste for the weekend.

WIN Score: 2:0 Profit: +0.6
