UEFA Champions 2nd Round qual. early games: Alashkert FC v FC Sheriff Tiraspol, Lincoln Red Imps v CFR Cluj
After an exciting first round of action in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, the games will go up a notch this week with the second round action.
Most of that is due to the teams coming into the competition, which will see 13 ties played out over the next week.
In the two early games Tuesday, Alashkert will host FC Sheriff Tiraspol, while record breakers Lincoln Red Imps host CFR Cluj.
Both of these ties should see the teams on the road today advance, but each could have differing levels of difficulty today.
I think Sheriff finds a way to win a tight game at Alashkert, while CFR Cluj could put up a few goals in Gibraltar.
