Reigning Romanian champion, Cluj fell into a very difficult group during the first lap of this C3. there were Celtic, Lazio and Stade-Rennais. However, the Romanians did not serve as a release for their opponents on the contrary since they finished in 2nd place in their pool with 12 points, one less than Celtic but 6 more than the Romans and 8 more than the Bretons. With 4 successes against Lazio (2-1), Rennes (0-1 and 1-0) and Celtic (2-0) and two losses conceded in Glasgow (2-0) and Rome (1-0) , Dan Vasile Petrescu’s men were dangerous. In the league, they are still leaders with a 3-point lead over their first pursuer at a meeting at the end of the regular season. But they remain on two draws and blank matches against Gaz Metan Medias and Viitorul.
Opposite, Sevilla FC had no trouble finishing at the top of their qualifying group with 5 wins for a single defeat. After easily dominating Qarabag (0-3), APOEL Nicosia (1-0), Dudelange (3-0 and 2-5), and Qarabag again (2-0), the Andalusians were surprised by the APOEL in the last match in this group (1-0). In the championship, Julien Lopetegui’s men are not necessarily at their best. Held in check by Alavès (1-1), they were then beaten by Celta Vigo (2-1) before obtaining a new draw last weekend against Espanyol (2-2). In the classification, they must for the moment settle for 5th place, 2 lengths from the podium.
