Celtic Preview – Can Celtic progress?

Celtic have made a good start to the new domestic Scottish Premiership season after having recorded an emphatic 5-1 home win against Hamilton Academical which was followed by picking up a point in a 1-1 draw away from home at Kilmarnock.

The Bhoys’ game against Aberdeen on the weekend was postponed, so Neil Lennon’s side have had extra time to recover from any knocks and prepare for this important Champions League qualifier as Celtic look to progress through the qualifying stages and into the group stages of this elite competition.

Recent overall results have seen Celtic win seven of their last 12 Champions League ties, while at Celtic Park, the hosts have lost just one of their last six ties and includes four wins with victories over Alashkert, Rosenborg, Sarajevo and Nomme Kalju.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

KR Reykjavik Preview – Can Reykjavik put up stubborn resistance?

Icelandic visitors, KR Reykjavik, face an extremely tough 1st qualifying round tie against Scottish champions Celtic, on Tuesday night, especially as Reykjavik have won just one of their last four matches in all competitions.

KR secured last season’s Icelandic Urvalsdeild top flight title by a significant and comprehensive 14-point margin ahead of runners-up, Breidablik, which earned them a place in these Champions League qualifiers but recent results suggest the visitors could come unstuck here; draws with Fjolnir and KA along with a 2-1 loss at home to FH on the domestic scene doesn’t bode well for this trip to Glasgow on Tuesday night.

In addition, KR Reykjavik last met Celtic in the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League back in 2014 and the Icelanders were handed a heavy 5-0 loss on aggregate by The Bhoys, and they’ll do well to contain Celtic in their own backyard here.
