Celtic vs CFR Cluj

The second leg of the 3rd Qualifying Round kicks off tonight with Scottish Premier League champions Celtic hosting reigning Romanian title holders CFR Cluj in a 7:45pm start at Celtic Park. It was a 1-1 draw in the first leg out in Romania so there's all to play for here. Which of these two sides will prevail victorious to face-off against Czechia side Slavia Prague for a spot in the Champions League group stage?

Celtic will be satisfied that they came through the first leg on the road with a draw. Neil Lennon might be disappointed his team couldn't take the victory but after CFR Cluj took the lead through Mario Rondon before James Forrest levelled for the Scottish he'll be relieved the tie didn't end in a defeat. It was the first time the Hoops had failed to win a competitive game this season so it'll be interesting to see how they react.

CFR Cluj come into this game knowing they need to score to have any chance of going through. Dan Petrescu has stated his wariness of Celtic's talents throughout their side but being able to hold the Glasgow side to a draw in the first leg will give his men hope that they can cause an upset here. The absence of key pair Michael Pereira and Emmanuel Culio in the first leg with both possibly missing again tonight is a blow so it'll be an uphill struggle in front of a partisan Celtic Park crowd.

The bookies favour a Celtic win here and it's hard to disagree. CFR Cluj will need to come at Celtic with that vital goal needed. Even then, it will only take one goal from Celtic to put the pressure on the Romanian side again. This is a Celtic side that are incredibly strong on home turf having won 4 of their last 5 Champions League matches at home and 12 of their previous 14 Champions League qualifiers at home. Backing them to get the job done here makes total sense.

FC Copenhagen- Crvena Zvezda

I was on stadium watching both teams in tough first leg. Expected more from FCK as watching them in previous matches had impression that they are way more creative. Ok Skov was sold and Falk wasnt there. Still pretty much one way attack, sending balls to Ndoye. Fisher wasnt there at all. Holse also. Wind couldnt make room for himself. Still managed to take 1 1 draw thanks to to their opponent.

Zvezda played like cowards second half. Let the ball to FCK and waited who knows what. Poor mentality. Think they are much worse than last season. Everything depends on Marin and his creativity. Also players arent in great condition. Mostly of them couldnt run in last 20 min or so. 

Think FCK will win. They are strong at home. Zvezda arent that good imo to cause problems.

Porto vs Krasnodar

My second preview of this qualification round in the Champions League is between Portuguese giants Porto and Russian side Krasnodar in an 8pm BST kick-off from the Estadio do Dragao tonight. It seems unusual to have a season where Porto didn't win their domestic league but it happened and they've been thrown in the league path of the draw as a result of that. The winners of this tie will play the winners of Club Brugge versus Dynamo Kiev in the Play-Off Round.

Porto will be gutted that they were pipped to the Primeira Division title by Benfica. Just 2 points separated the two sides but it means Sergio Conceicao's side must go through this whole qualification hassle to reach the group stage. It wasn't the best of starts to their league season on the weekend with a 2-1 defeat away to minnows Gil Vicente. However, the Portuguese team managed to come away with a dogged 1-0 win away in Russia last week to bring an advantage into this second leg at home.

Krasnodar finished in 3rd place last season in the Russian Premier Division. That meant that Murad Musayev's men qualified for the Champions League for the first time in their history. Unfortunately, they're up against here with a one goal deficit from the first leg. They know that they need to score at least one goal to keep their hopes alive. That will certainly leave them vulnerable to Porto's attacking prowess.

The goalscoring record of Porto at home in this competition is very impressive. The club has bagged 20 goals in their last 8 home games in the Champions League. This includes scoring two or more goals in three of their last four home games in this competition. I can see them taking advantage of Krasnodar's situation of needing to score. Porto will sit back and hit Krasnodar when they're vulnerable. I'm not even confident the Russian side will score.
