Champions League at Coral

The 2nd legs of the 1st round matches of the Champions League will be played on Wednesday night and our next featured match sees Scottish outfit, Celtic, taking on Bosnian side, Sarajevo, as the betting tips continue at the Celtic Park.

Celtic Prediction – Can Celtic close out tie?

A comfortable 3-1 win away at Wednesday night’s opponents, Sarajevo, in last week’s 1st leg have placed Celtic in a strong position ahead of this return leg at Celtic Park.

Neil Lennon’s side are now just 90 minutes away from progressing through to the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League.

Lennon is now in his second stint at The Hoops and will be looking to guide his side to at least the group stages of the Champions League this season.

The hosts have also produced a dominant sequence of results as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 20 matches overall in all competitions.

That loss was to arch-rivals, Rangers, in the Glasgow derby back in May, but since then, Celtic have bounced back in style.

5 wins from their subsequent 7 matches after that defeat mean Celtic possess the necessary resilience to bounce back from adversity.

Unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home, and 3 defeats from their last 9 matches at home in the Champions League should see a confident Celtic outfit tonight.

Sarajevo Prediction – Can Sarajevo spoil Celtic’s party?

Everything seemed to be going in Sarajevo’s favour ahead of their 1st leg clash with Scottish champions, Celtic last week.

The visitors had claimed the Bosnia & Herzegovina Premijer Liga title by a 5-point margin ahead of runners-up, Zrinjski, with a winning momentum behind them.

Sarajevo had won 3 of their last 4 league matches in the Bosnia-Herzegovina top flight to secure the league title.

Wins against Celik 5-0, Zvijezda 4-0 and a 2-0 win away at GOSK Gabela had seemingly set Sarajevo up for further success against Celtic.

However, defeat at home to Celtic in last week’s 1st leg of this Champions League tie became Sarajevo’s third defeat on the trot.

Friendly losses to Czech Republic side, Slovacko and Slivenia outfit, Domzale prior to their clash with Celtic mean they’re now looking to avoid a fourth defeat on the trot.

At Champions League level, Sarajevo have lost their last 6 ties on the trot and the trip to Celtic Park looks doomed for the visitors.


Key-Facts – Celtic v Sarajevo

  • Celtic have lost just 1 of their last 20 matches overall in all competitions
  • Celtic are unbeaten in their last 7 matches at home in all competitions
  • Sarajevo have lost their last 6 ties on the trot in the Champions League


Betting Tips Verdict

Celtic are expected to seal this tie at Celtic Park and there could be a few goals in this one too.
