cfr-cluj vs celtic Tip Reason:

Will Celtic continue their march towards the Champions League group stages? Neil Lennon is hoping to go one better than Brendan Rodgers last season by guiding them into the last 32 of this competition. However, Rodgers made the group stage twice in three years at Celtic Park, while he made it into the Europa League knockout round last term. Their clear step up in continental competition brings pressure for Lennon, who is worked on a limited budget unless he can secure a bright European future for the Bhoys. Celtic are making a tough trip to Cluj this week, as the hosts have managed back to back home wins in this competition. Cluj have already taken out Astana and Maccabi Tel Aviv in an increasingly competitive field. Making it through the champions qualifying path is no easy task, especially with the spots in the group stage being limited. Cluj were in the group stage in 2008, 2010 and 2012, but they’ve not survived the summer in any continental competition since. Celtic certainly took a step up under Rodgers, but they have shown some strong form this summer. They’ve managed to win four from four in Europe, a run which has seen them score 12 times and concede only twice. The Bhoys are now only two rounds shy of making it to the group stage, while they’ve won four of their last six playoff ties in this competition. History shows that once they navigate the third round they tend to make it, while they crashed out at this stage last season. The Bhoys come into this clash in form, while their hopes of winning have been boosted. Cluj have run foul of UEFA ahead of this tie, with their squad limited to 22 players after they broke FFP regulations. That’s angered former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu, who has claimed that the punishment hands Celtic an unfair advantage.
