CFR Cluj-FC Astana    (won)

Early bet but not much value, but dont think we'll get better price than this, simply because there arent too many reasons to back the kazak side. We saw already in first leg many respectable tipstah backing the value on romanian side and that should have been a winner, as there wasnt much between this two, in fact romanians looked more likely to steal it, but as often happens in start of the season, with no sharpness in their feet, they lost concentration at one dead ball and missed with ease their huge chances, and Astana nicked it without creating a single real chance as CFR looked to defend deep with 9 men and absorb all those crosses especially from Rukavina's flank, but there wasnt much danger from them.
CFR played a defensive game, using 3 defensive midfielders and used Omrani as a lone striker, which is not at all a striker and especially not one to attack crosses, a tactic often used by Petrescu, dont understand why they havent used top-scorer Tucudean at all. Astana also used Rotariu as a lone striker and he also he's not a striker at all, so it wasnt going to be a great game and from fitness level point of view CFR match them, the long travel and lack of games didnt do them much harm but i think it was the main reason they lost this, as with much more sharpness in their body they would have scored one of those chances.
So this two are average teams with no real quality for this competition, but Astana is much weaker on the road and CFR much stronger at home. I dont expect much risks from Petrescu, clean sheet will be vital here, and we all know how he loves 1-0. But i do expect a much more offensive oriented, at least not as defensive minded as in first leg, and they should use Tucudean at some point and they will have to throw the kitchen sink at some point as they need a goal, and they already did that, in first leg, after first goal and they did had a nice build up with Omrani finishing it wide with empty net. So i can see CFR controlling tactically the game and nicking it. Dont expect a great game as this two look very short on creativity and prolly CFR should be bit more prepared this time, with Liga 1 starting this midweek, but imo this Astana is mediocre, and it is for the taking, it only depends on CFR if they are ready for this and if they will score their chances.

Hope they win, but lost enough money on the Super Cup, first leg at Astana and the game with Iasi where they used most of the starting eleven and did score just one goal to bet on them again, do not know what`s wrong with them, freaking Omrani missed with the empty net at Astana and I would have won some money on the X2, do not trust them at all.
sirac 17-07-2019, 11:47
well in supercup they just didnt care, used mixed squad also. And with Iasi they didnt used most of regulars, Vinicius, Culio, Omrani, Paun, Hoban, Tucudean didnt played or played few min, so obviously they were focusing on this game so we should see if they have issues or it was just bad luck and lack of focus. Domac, can you pls settle my Zvezda pick as lost,thank you!

I think coach Petrescu wants to win everything, so they tried to win the supercup, they had plenty opportunities to score. Besides, Viitorul`s goal was a lucky shot from distance, if Artean tries 10 times more he won`t even shot the goal. But Viitorul had a clear not given PK to be fair. Problem with Omrani upfront is that he is out of position, he prefers to come from behind. Tucudean is the real striker, but unless they figure it out what`s wrong with his heart, they won`t risk using him.

Rondon playing up-front, Omrani behind so clearly a team to score this time compared with first leg
sirac 17-07-2019, 20:29
my God, both look like a mess defensively. CFR all over them,but they just cant defend...this aint over yet
gameiro 17-07-2019, 20:55
at least is over for Astana, they should send an email with UEFA please let us play all the games at home

Djokovic copied Omrani in missing with a clear goal.
