According to Celtic manager Neil Lennon, his team wants a clear advantage against Romanian team CFR Cluj in tonight’s UEFA Champions League match.
CFR Cluj and Celtic are set to play tonight in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
And for coach Neil Lennon, the Scottish team can get a great advantage tonight.
“We respect Cluj and know that they negotiated a very tough tie in the last round,” said the manager to the team’s official website.
“We know how tough these ties can be and this one will be no different. They’re very well-organized and play somewhat of a British style of play in their football.”
“I expect the game away from home to be as difficult as we’ve had so far in the campaign. This is Europe, away from home, against the Romanian champions,” he added.
“We’re prepared, obviously, but we’re respectful of the opposition. They have a number of great players in forward areas, they’ve got good energy and a good mentality.”
“They move the ball from back quickly, they cross the ball well, they’re a threat at set plays,” he concluded.
