Prediction, preview, team news, and more for Lincoln Red Imps versus CFR Cluj | Qualifiers for the UEFA Champions League 2021-22


The UEFA Champions League is back in action with another set of qualifiers this week as Lincoln Red Imps take on CFR Cluj at the Victoria Stadium on Wednesday. Both teams have been impressive in recent weeks and will need to prove a point in this game.

Lincoln Red Imps have not made much of an impact on the European stage and will look to create history this year. The Gibraltar outfit stunned Fola Esch with a 5-0 victory in the previous round but will face an uphill battle in this match.

CFR Cluj, on the other hand, do have some experience on the European stage but will have to be wary against a determined side. The Romanians edged Borac Banja Luka to a narrow aggregate victory last week and will need to step up in this fixture.
