Under 2.5 Goals
CFR Cluj have only collected one point from their first three matches in Group D, though the Romanian outfit have at least managed to keep the score down during their trio of unsuccessful Europa Conference League outings. Cluj have only conceded three times in the competition so far, one of which was shipped in a 1-0 reverse at home to AZ. Under 2.5 goals landed in each of those three assignments, and the same market appeals at the prices on offer for Thursday.
AZ to Win to Nil
Romanian minnows Cluj have already lost to nil twice in three Group D matches this term and having failed to land a blow against AZ when the sides met at the Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu last month, CFR could struggle in the final third again in Thursday’s rematch. Alkmaar kept clean sheets in each of their last two skirmishes in the section and a stake on them to win to nil for the third time in a row in the competition could prove a profitable move.
Half Time Result: AZ
AZ were in front inside 20 minutes of last month’s victory over Cluj in Romania thanks to a Jesper Karlsson effort and we’re tipping the Eredivisie outfit to establish an early advantage in the return contest on Thursday. AZ were in the lead at the break in three of their last four matches in Alkmaar and they should be able to repeat the trick against Group D’s worst performers this week.
AZ vs Cluj: Match Preview
AZ finally hitting their stride
After a rocky start to the 2021/22 campaign, AZ have finally found a formula that works in recent weeks and Alkmaar have won six of their last seven games in all competitions ahead of Thursday’s clash. In the Europa Conference League, AZ have taken seven points from nine so far and they can put one foot in the knockout round with another positive result this week.
Cluj heading for a limp exit
CFR Cluj have been hitting all the wrong notes in the Europa Conference League so far, as evidenced by their haul of just one goal and one point from three matches in Group D. Domestically, Cluj still hold sway however, and they top the Romanian Liga 1 table by eight points after just 14 games of the campaign.
