A draw would possibly suffice for Roma, but I suspect that , having finally found some form, they would like to continue the good run and record a fourth straight win, to say nothing of a little revenge for the Matchday 1 home defeat to the Romanian side, which left the Italian giants, not just in trouble, but humiliated .
Cluj have certainly gone off the boil recently, falling to 6th spot in the table. Speaking to a "local" contact this morning, he told me that they are unhappy with the coach and his "day's " might be numbered. Hosts are expected to sit back and try to hit Roma on the break, tactics which will no doubt suit the visitors, however, sooner or later Cluj will have to push forward, as only a win will give them a chance of progression. I expect class to tell tonight, as discussed earlier in the season, with the final taking in the Eternal City and Roma off to such a slow start in Serie A, a successful Champions League campaign is not just desired, it is essential and jobs are on the line !
