F91 Dudelange and Cluj meet at Stade Josy Barthel, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Europa League (Play-offs). These two teams have never faced each other before, so this will be their first direct confrontation. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since the F91 Dudelange presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.

F91 Dudelange:

Until reaching this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Play-offs), the home team eliminated: KP Legia Warsaw and Drita. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in away matches; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. In the last 10 home matches for all competitions, F91 Dudelange has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1.

For this competition, they have not lost any of the last 4 matches. Their defense has not been very strong, since they have suffered at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches, but their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 22 of the last 31 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times, but have come back in 2. There are 2 periods highlighted in the last 7 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 4 of their 8 goals between the minutes (31′-45 ‘ ) and 3 of their 8 between (16’-30 ‘).

In this first game of the European League playoffs, the Dudelange team arrives after two games without winning the competitions that it disputes, that is, one match for the Luxemburger League and another for the Europa League. In this match the Dudelange must be presented in the tactical scheme 4-2-3-1, looking for a good defensive organization and attacking on the flanks. In this tactical design we highlight the advanced P. Stumpf, who must be the most advanced player of the team. The biggest highlight of the team in this competition is by the aforementioned P. Stumpf, in addition to D. Turpel, both with two goals scored in the competition.


The visiting team reached this phase of the UEFA Europa League (Play-offs) after having eliminated Alashkert, with a victory by (5-0) at home and a victory by (0-2) away in the previous round. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 7 conceded; against 11 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 7 suffered. In the last match they played for the Liga I, they won against Dinamo Bucureşti at home (3-1). In the last 10 away matches Cluj has won 5, tied 4 and lost 1. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches.

Despite playing away from home in this first leg, the Cluj comes confident, after five straight victories in all competitions, namely, First Division Romanian (League I 18/19) and Europa League. For this match in the adversary’s field the team must appear in the 4-3-3 tactical scheme, to guarantee defensive organization and attacks through their extreme rapids, attacking by the flanks. In this tactical drawing we highlight A. Păun, G. Ţucudean and even B. Omrani, who must occupy the most advanced positions. These 3 players are the highlights of the team and have two goals scored each in this competition.
