MANCHESTER, England (AP) -With a Manchester derby looming, little-known Romanian side CFR Cluj is hoping to catch Man United off guard Wednesday and keep alive its hopes of reaching the Champions League's last 16 for the first time.

Cluj and Galatasaray are level on points heading into the final matchday of the group stage as they fight for the runner-up spot in Group H behind United.

Galatasaray holds the head-to-head advantage so Cluj must better the result of the Turkish side, which visits Braga.

A victory for Cluj at Old Trafford would make things interesting, and shouldn't be discounted given that already-qualified United will rest players ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against rival Manchester City.

Cluj midfielder Mario Camora says "you're allowed to dream before a match at the Theatre of Dreams.''
