Astana made it though three rounds of qualifying last season, before losing out to Dinamo Zagreb. The Kazathstan side always seem to pick up good results at home in the Champions League, their defeat to Dinamo Zagreb last season was their first ever home defeat in this competition, a run spanning 14 matches.
CFR Cluj also have some good results in past seasons to their name – most nobitbly a 1-0 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United back in 2012.
Last season they fell at their first qualifying stage – losing out to Malmo following a disappointing 1-0 home defeat before drawing in Sweden.
We’re backing the home side to get a narrow advantage here. They are half way though their domestic season and will be fully fit for this game.
Astana got back to winning ways at the weekend following two straight defeats. They beat Tobol 2-0 to go back to the top of their domestic league.
Clij have played five friendlies so far this summer in preperation for this Champions League qualifying campaign, and they’ve picked up four wins and a draw. They did lose their Supercupa match against Viitorul at the weekend though and goalscoring could be a problem for them judged on their low scoring matches so far.
The second of our Astana v Cluj betting tips is going to be for the home sode to win the match 2-1 at odds of 9/1.
