can Cfr shock europe once more or will Chelsea beat CFR Cluj in their 1st int. game in their upgraded stadium?
Chelsea are much tougher than Roma as they are physically better and very direct and don't depend too much on the form of a single player... but on the other hand romanian teams do usually quite okay against english teams but its obviously not the case here reallyGood set up they have at Cluj. You can see they are a club that will have some more memorable times in the future but Roma in that first game and Chelsea in this tie are two very different animals.
I agree... English sides are generally very tough and their expected line up is even above good for english standards... and Carvalho atleast isnt that powerful but Alex is another physical rock... I doubt that Kone can do something there...What I worry the most is their physical superiority. These English teams are beasts. They are tall, strong, fast, resistant, tireless...it´s like athletes playing football. The teams of the rest of leagues are inferior in that sense.
Carvalho won´t play btw. The other CB will be Brazilian Alex.
Pereira will play at CFR. His attacks on the left can be a good weapon.
I´d like to see Trica scoring...and Deac playing!
Yep this is the battle of foreign coaches with Ivorian strikers and Portugese midfielders!If we talk about traditional outcomes between Romanian and English clubs, it's important to point out that CFR is hardly a Romanian side while Chelsea is hardly an English one as well.
