Sparta Prague vs Celtic Predictions
- BT Sport 3
- Celtic have conceded nine times in three group games
- Five of Sparta’s last six games have seen both teams score
- Six of Celtic’s previous seven games have seen BTTS
Lennon’s men to fall short
Celtic were thumped 4-1 at home to Sparta Prague in their last European game, they’ll expect better from their second ever clash with the Czech side.
Manager Neil Lennon is under pressure after a poor run at Celtic Park, with a major turnaround needed from the Bhoys. Celtic have kept only one clean sheet in eight, while shipping nine goals in their three Europa League group games.
Each of those three games have seen both teams score, while Sparta have seen BTTS land in five of their last six matches in this competition. Both teams have scored in five of the hosts’ last six and in six of Celtic’s last seven, so it’s our first selection here.
Sparta Prague haven’t won consecutive Europa League games since 2016, so we don’t expect another defeat for the Bhoys. However, Celtic have won just two of their last six, producing three high-scoring draws. Given that, our correct score prediction is a 2-2 draw.
