Europa League Dudelange vs CFR Cluj Prediction
Dudelange, this team is the current champion of Luxembourgish football that is neither professional nor almost visible in European football.
This team is therefore weak in the context of European football. In the championship they have 2 games and only won a match. They were defeated at home in the last match.
This team even started by playing the first qualifying round for the Champions League and they were brave.
They drew 1 goal at home with Videoton and in Hungary they lost 2-1 in a tough game.
They dropped to the second round of this Europa League where they eliminated Drita from Kosovo. 2-1 at home and away from home a draw at 1 goal. Then came the great surprise.
They eliminated the Polish champion, the Légia Warsaw. They were beaten 2-1 in Poland and conceded a 2-0 draw at home, thus pushing the Poles away.
A beautiful and interesting feat for this Luxembourg team who now dreams of joining the UEFA Europa League group stage.
Cluj is the Romanian champion and one of the best teams of Romanian football managing to face Steaua Bucharest. The squad is reasonable and this year they are back and decided to defend the title.
Cluj are currently leading the championship with 11 points in 5 games and the team is in good shape.
Like their opponents today, they too began to play in the Champions League Qualifying Round, but in a very balanced tie, they were defeated by Sweden’s Malmo.
They fell for these qualifiers of the League Europe where they won the Alashkert without difficulties, with victories in both matches.
In this tie they are clearly favorites and this was not hidden by the leaders of the Cluj that assumed ambition to arrive at the group phase of the Europa League.

Cluj has all the conditions to beat Dudelange in Luxembourg. The home team has a short football, likes to play in quick transitions and I fully believe that the Romanians are prepared for this type of game.
Cluj will take on the game in Luxembourg, will play more time installed in the opposing midfield and I think the superiority of the Romanians will reflect if in the final result.
The Dudelange have been a competitive team and have merit for the way they eliminated Légia Warsaw for example, but it should be borne in mind that Légia played a very short time to 10 points in the first leg and in a way this favored Luxembourg as a whole.
Cluj are a more tidy team than Légia and I believe they win this game.
