Lincoln Red Imps to Win
CFR Cluj are the dominant outfit in this fixture. The Romanians have the better pedigree and have actually qualified for the Champions League. However, their current form does not dictate giving them a free pass. They had to find solitude in extra time to qualify for the Qualification Quarter-finals. On the other hand, Lincoln Red Imps cruised past Fola across both legs and have the form on their side. They should secure an upset victory over their rivals at the Victoria Stadium.
BTTS – Yes
Lincoln Red Imps did not concede in either of their fixtures against Fola. However, it looks unlikely that the Gibraltar based outfit will be able to add another clean sheet to their tally in the Champions League qualifying fixture. Cluj had a torrid time taming Borac Banja Luka but showed they can score anyone on their day. This is why we expect both sides to get on the scoreboard in this competitive encounter.
Over 2.5 Goals
Fourteen goals were witnessed as both Lincoln Red Imps and CFR Cluj progressed to the next qualifying phase. With both sides seeing seven goals across their respective fixtures. As the stakes get high, teams tend to get more cautious but not hosts who are outright underdogs. With Cluj conceding goals with relative ease, the Imps will fancy their luck. There should be plenty of goalmouth action that should provide us with goals.

Match Preview of Lincoln Red Imps vs Cluj
Lincoln Red Imps
Mick McElwee ensured Lincoln Red Imps were at the top of the points table last season and has done a commendable job in the UEFA Champions League qualifying fixtures. However, it will be for nought if they are unable to progress further. They are scoring regularly and shutting out their rivals. But in the Railwaymen, have their tougher test so far. They will have to play out of their skin but will fancy their chances given Cluj's recent indifferent form.
Cluj are here as Romanian champions. They did themselves a disservice in the last round as undergods Borac Banja Luka took them to extra time. On paper, they are favourites again but the tags will mean nothing on the pitch. Lincoln Red Imps have given a good account of their abilities and can manage a surprise for them. The likes of Gabriel Debeljuh will have to ensure their blushes are spared or it will be another long season without continental competition.
