The performance of CFR Cluj in warm-up matches of this season is not bad, got 4W-1D in total. But it is need to mention that they often play with some teams with general strength, it cannot see their real strength. They did not perform ideal in the formal games, which lost to FC Viitorul Constanta with 0-1 in Romania Super Cup and then lost to Astana with 0-1 in away game.
Lokomotiv Astana is a strong team in Kazakhstan Premier League as they keep a good mood in near league games. They defeated CFR Cluj in last home game so they will have some experience in this game as guest. But they still have conceded more than 1 goal on average in near 10 games, so they still have some problems in their defending side.
Now the handicap first odd is Lokomotiv Astana -0.5 and then turning into Lokomotiv Astana -0.75. It can be expected that CFR Cluj will look for the chance to offense and that will make Lokomotiv Astana become fierce. Moreover, CFR Cluj use some key players in league, it will certain affect their playing form, so I think Lokomotiv Astana will have a good result.
CFR Cluj VS Lokomotiv Astana
Pick: Lokomotiv Astana +0.75
