Celtic begin Champions League qualification quest

Serial Scottish champions Celtic launch their latest bid for Champions League Group Stage qualification this week with a winnable looking fixture at home to Icelandic title holders KR Reykjavík on Tuesday.

Celtic have fallen short in their efforts to join the continent’s elite in each of the last two seasons, losing to AEK Athens and CFR Cluj respectively in heart-breaking defeats in the 3rd qualifying round of the competition.

The Hoops should manage to avoid similar disappointment this time around, though the evidence suggests a consolation effort could be on offer for visiting KR.

Celtic conceded in both legs against a club of similar standing in the UCL 1st qualifying round in 2019, Sarajevo, and Neil Lennon’s charges started their 2020/21 domestic campaign in Scotland by conceding in each of their first two Premiership games.

With those factors considered, the Celtic win and both teams to score combination looks favourable at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction anticipates a 4-1 victory for The Bhoys.

KR shipped seven goals to Molde the last time they left Iceland for a European tie, and Celtic should be able to tear holes in their defence with similar ease. The Celts hit five goals against Hamilton in their first game of the new campaign at Parkhead, and should be able to record a similarly meaty win here.
