Barcelona vs Celtic Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
What a great football game in Champions League to increase our budget with betting. Barcelona takes on Celtic at Camp Nou and we expect one very interesting football match. Together with Manchester City, Barcelona stands for the favorite to win the group and from the first place continues the competition. However Celtic and Borussia M.Gladbach for sure are not teams to underestimate and therefore matches in this group will be always interesting both to watch and to bet on. First of two pairs in this round, Barcelona vs Celtic will not be different.
La Primeras defending champion Barcelona started the season winning the Supercopa de Espana against Sevilla scoring five and without conceding any goal. Then they continued with two opening victories in the league with seven scored goals. They showed, as expected, very good team play and great dominancy over their opponents. However in their last league match they disappointed and lose. Last season champions now sharing fourth place with Eibar and Las Palmas. Shocking defeat against Alaves in third round definitely leaved a mark on the team and their self-confidence and opening match in Champions League will be a true test for the team and their strength.
On the other side, Celtic will be full of self-confidence following 5-1 victory in their last league match against Rangers. This is their four consecutive victory this season in the league. They scored fifteen goals in four matches and seem unstoppable in attack. However when it comes to their mutual encounters, Barcelona won in five of their last six matches against Celtic in all competition and even scored ten goals in their last three matches while Celtic scored only two in the same period. Barcelona definitely are the favorites in this match as well but considering Celtic’s current form and recent performances they won’t have an easy job and even a surprises are possible.
