The Armenian football club finished the season on top of the standings, only one point ahead of their main rival, Ararat Armenia. The gap before the third place was an incredible 24 points.

The Romanians look much more experienced at the Euro-Arena in comparison with their opponents. The Europa League group stage in the 19/20 and 20/21 seasons, as well as the Conference League last season. Dan Petrescu’s side were also champions at home, one point ahead of their pursuer. “Cluj would certainly like to test their strength in the Champions League and a first-round exit would be unforgivable for them.
