Marius Sumudica's Cluj were taken to extra time by Bosnia-Herzegovina Premijer Liga champions Borac Banja Luka in the first round of qualifying. 

They won the first leg 3-1 but lost 2-0 in the second leg before Alexandru Chipciu scored an 118th minute winner for Cluj.

Cluj lost the Romanian Super Cup on penalties to Univ. Craiova after a 0-0 draw. 

They have won both league games with a 3-2 win over newly promoted U Craiova 1948 followed by a 2-1 win over Academica Clinceni on Saturday.

Midfielder Alexandru Chipciu was a half-time substitute in the first leg and could be handed a start.
