Ballkani vs CFR Cluj Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (08/09/2022)

Ballkani will face CFR Cluj in the first round of the Europa Conference League group stage on Thursday.

Ballkani vs CFR Cluj: Top Free Betting Tips

Ballkani are a team that would normally not be in the group stage of such a tournament but here they are. Cluj should be able to beat them overall. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

We expect an under in this match for multiple different reasons. First of all, we have CFR Cluj – this is a team with an extremely good defense for this level of football. They barely conceded goals in the whole qualifications and should be able to keep a clean sheet or concede no more than one goal here. On the other end, Ballkani are a much smaller team overall and while they did have high-scoring games, they were against much weaker teams overall. We expect an under here.

Match Result – Draw

Cluj are the favorites in this match and we even expected lower odds for them. In each case, they will have a lot more chances to win this game than Ballkani but we think that it will be a draw. Cluj are not a high-scoring team and particularly on the road. The team had four qualification games and all four of the away fixtures ended in draws – three times 0:0 and one 1:1. Ballkani are a smaller team but their current form is perfect and they will be a difficult opponent at home.

Both Teams To Score – No

In all honesty, we expect to see a 0:0 in this match, so if you are looking for a correct score bet here, consider the 0:0 and 1:1 for single bets. As mentioned above, Cluj had three away draws without goals and we think that this is a possibility here. In each case, if we expect a team to score, this definitely is Cluj. Ballkani had a lot of goals in the qualifications but the team had the easiest draw possible.

Ballkani vs CFR Cluj: Form, Recent Games, and News

Ballkani Preview

Ballkani are the champions of the Kosovo Superliga but they failed in the qualifications for the Champions League. After that, the team did not lose a single qualifier for the Europa Conference League. The difference to Cluj, for example, is that Ballkani had only weak opponents and smaller teams – La Fiorita, Klaksvik, Shkupi, etc. We are yet to see how they will perform against a wealthier and bigger club like Cluj.

CFR Cluj Preview

Cluj are the current champions of Romania and the team has been levels above all other teams in the league. Like Ballkani, they failed in their Champions League qualifiers and then also did not lose a single qualifier for ECL. They had a much more difficult draw and had to beat opponents like Shakhtyor Soligorsk and Maribor to get to this group stage. Overall, this is not a high-scoring side but their defense is extremely solid.
