Paulo Sergio's first match in charge of Cluj is a big one, with a chance to all but secure a spot in the Round of 16 there for the taking. Rafael Bastos and Modou Sougou were both in doubt for Cluj and while Sougou made the starting lineup, Bastos did not. So in comes Pantelis Kapetanos to fill the role.
Galatasary's lineup is fairly standard with the only adjustment being due to the loss of Johan Elmander to a thigh injury. Burak Yilmaz replaces the Swede in Fatih Terim's starting lineup. Anything less than a win today likely ends the Turkish sides hopes of advancing out of the group.
CFR Cluj starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Mário Felgueiras; Ivo Pinto, László Sepsi, Felice Piccolo, Cadú; Camora, Gabriel Mureșan, Nicolas Godemèche, Luís Alberto; Pantelis Kapetanos, Modou Sougou.
