Jablonec Double Chance
Czech Republic side Jablonec will start Thursday’s Group D encounter with Cluj as slight underdogs, though they are notoriously tough to beat on their own patch and we think they are worth considering in the double chance market as a result. The hosts have lost just two of their last 20 assignments on home soil and they are worth backing to claim at least this week with that strong record in mind.
Both Teams to Score
Four of Jablonec’s last five fixtures at home produced goals at both ends and the same market could be worth pursuing on Thursday. Cluj’s results on the road have been patchy of late, though they did manage to hit the net in six of their last eight away contests. Defensively, issues remain however, and they shipped seven times in their last two European away fixtures. Their double-edged knack of hitting consolations and conceding plenty makes the BTTS market an attractive choice again this week.
Over 2.5 Goals
Jablonec have been good value in the entertainment stakes this season and seven of their last ten fixtures in all competitions have spawned three or more goals. Similarly, four of Cluj’s last six fixtures passed the over 2.5 goal mark and, on that evidence, it feels as though the chances of more action on Thursday are high. With both clubs capable of weaving pretty attacking patterns, we’re tipping over 2.5 goals to be scored in Czechia.
Jablonec vs Cluj: Match Preview
Jablonec Team News
Jablonec’s squad is made up almost exclusively of players from their homeland and Head Coach Petr Rada likes to deploy his team in a flat 4-1-4-1 formation. Jablonec scored eight times over two legs against Zilina in the Playoff Round of the Europa Conference League, highlighting the goal-getting potential in their ranks.
Cluj Team News
Having fallen short in both the Champions and Europa League already this season, Romanian outfit Cluj will be desperate to give a good account of themselves in the Conference League. Household names are few and far between in their ranks, though Icelandic international Rúnar Már Sigurjónsson brings experience to midfield and flanksman Claudiu Petrila has also been turning heads with some goal-scoring performances from the wing.
