Tip Reasoning

  • Celtic have lost four of their five away trips in all competitions this term (W1).
  • The Bhoys have also won just one of their last five away starts in this competition, losing three.
  • Real Betis have lost only to Barcelona and Real Madrid in their last 16 home La Liga games, winning eight.

Bhoys to come up short against Betis

Celtic kick off their Group G campaign against Real Betis this Thursday and The Bhoys are hard to fancy in Andalusia after losing four of their five away trips in all competitions this season.

The SPL side have been a force to be reckoned with at Celtic Park under new boss Ange Postecoglou, winning six on the bounce and netting a mammoth 23 goals in the process, but it’s been a different story altogether for them on their travels.

Celtic have suffered 2-1 defeats to Midtjylland, Hearts and AZ Alkmaar on the road along with a 1-0 Old Firm loss against Rangers, and The Bhoys just can’t seem to get going outside of Celtic Park.

They’ve also lost three of their last four away trips in this competition, so it’s easy to see why the bookmakers rate Postecoglou’s charges as 4/1 underdogs here, though that’s also due to the quality of Betis and the Spaniards’ consistency at Benito Villamarin.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men performed tremendously last season to finish sixth in La Liga, and their success has been built around their solid home form. Los Verdiblancos have lost only to Barcelona and Real Madrid in their last 16 outings at Benito Villamarin, winning eight.

Buoyed by their first league win of the campaign against Granada on Monday, the hosts should be too strong for their SPL opponents this Thursday night and we’re forecasting a Betis victory alongside a 3-1 correct score.
