CFR Cluj were, like Manchester United (Newton Heath), founded as a football club for railway workers. CFR stands for Căile Ferate Române - the national railway of Romania.

Preview: CFR Cluj

Sub-plots: Only in the dugouts. Sir Alex Ferguson and Ioan Andone have met before in the Champions League, and also in a 1986 friendly, when a Scotland side under Sir Alex's caretaker management comfortably overcame a Romania team which included Andone in defence.

Betting: United should maintain a 100 per cent start in Group H with an away victory over CFR Cluj. The Reds are 13/20 to pick up all three points, the draw is at 11/4 and the Romanian minnows are a 4/1 chance. Clean sheets have been kept in seven of United’s last nine away games in this competition and a Reds win to nil on Tuesday night is available at 33/20. Punters can open a bwin account and claim up to £20 in free bets with their first deposit.
