Celtic: The power is hard to stop ( Recent Form: W W D W D )
Celtic are the team from the Scottish Premier League. They were defending champions last season, giving me a formidable achievement. Over 38 rounds, Celtic brought 87 points, leaving the team behind with a 9-point gap. At the end of the domestic tournament, Celtic started their friendly matches and played very well when unbeaten in all four matches. Celtic owns a fairly comprehensive squad. They are the team that scored the second most goals in the Scottish Premier League and conceded at least the league. On public goods, quality strikers know how to coordinate and create dangerous situations. Along with that, the defense system is well-wrapped, becoming an obsession for all opponents. The current Premier League champions are in good form recently. The last 10 games they won 7, drew 2 and lost only once in May. In the first leg of the first qualifying match of the European Cup, Celtic had a convincing performance and defeated FK Sarajevo 3-1. Thanks to that, they have a great advantage when returning home. Experts believe that Neil Lennon's ability to continue with his teacher is much higher than his opponent.
FK Sarajevo: A difficult trip ( Recent Form: W W L L L )
FK Sarajevo is one of the most successful clubs in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Last year, they gave themselves the title double when they won both the Premier League and the National Cup. The power of FK Sarajevo in the domestic arena is not controversial. They proved superior to the rest. However, going to the big sea, especially in the prestigious arena like the Champions League, FK Sarajevo can only play the "lining up" team. Indeed, seeing what they show in the first leg with Celtic on home turf is enough. The simple tactic, without much of an emotional lesson, made FK Sarajevo embrace. The plus point of this team is physical strength, they play quite solid and are not afraid to collide. But before the old rivals, who can turn into a paradise like Celtic, they seem to be helpless, unable to deploy the attack, but only keep up with the ball. In addition, before coming to the first leg of the first round of the European Cup, FK Sarajevo's form was not good. They won the last 4/10 and drew 1, to lose 5 times. Experts suggest that it should not be risky to trust this team in the coming second leg because their chances of reversing the situation are very low.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, with superior expertise plus home advantage, if you play in the right way, Celtic players can absolutely win this match. Moreover, they have won 3 away goals and the gap is 2 goals so they will be more confident. Meanwhile, the opponent seems to have anticipated difficulties and does not overestimate achievement, so there will be lack of determination and acceptance of failure.
