Champions League and Europa League qualifiers take place over Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in a packed week of sport, as the US hard-court swing getting underway in tennis and some heavyweight boxing action takes place at the weekend.
Cluj reached the Champions League group stage some 11 years ago and they can make the most of home advantage on Tuesday when they entertain Sweden’s Malmo in Romania.
Malmo have already come through one qualifier against Kosovo’s Drita but Cluj are a step up in quality and can take a lead into the return fixture by claiming a win on Tuesday.
Dutch giants Ajax reached the Europa League final in 2017 but missed out on European football last term after losing their Champions League qualifier and a subsequent Europa League qualifier.
The Amsterdam outfit will be desperate to reach the group stage this term and should be able to get past Austria’s Sturm Graz, and they may win the home leg on Wednesday with a bit of room to spare too.
Isner suffered Wimbledon semi-final heartache as he lost an epic five-setter to Kevin Anderson and now the American turns his attentions to action on home soil.
The big-serving 33-year-old is at a career-high world number eight in the ATP rankings and is the favourite for the ATP Atlanta event as preparations for the US Open begin in earnest.
Isner justifies favouritism given his displays at SW19 and can take the title in Atlanta as he builds towards the final major of 2018.
Europa League qualifiers rarely provoke much interest at this stage of proceedings but the match-up between England’s Burnley and Scottish side Aberdeen could be an intriguing affair.
The Clarets head north of the border on Thursday and should be able to secure a fairly comfortable win, although that is not to say the Dons will not put up a real fight.
Burnley are 1/3 to win but the 8/5 on the Premier League outfit to be winning at half-time and full-time looks too good to pass up.
Former world champion Parker comes up against Briton Whyte in his first outing since a points loss to Anthony Joshua.
The winner of this will probably earn a title shot after this showdown and with home advantage Whyte may just be able to edge this close contest.
Parker is probably the better fighter technically, but Whyte is a huge puncher and the contrast in styles should provide an excellent contest.
