Celtic vs Norwich Betting Tips

Goals, goals, and more goals seem to be the motto of Head Coach Postecoglu, and when Celtic are involved, we can usually expect an entertaining contest where plenty of goalmouth action can be expected.

Of course, Norwich suffered a dismal PL campaign last year, and while they have performed well in pre-season, including a 3:0 win against Marseille, the visitors will be expecting a tough contest this weekend with Celtic so strong at their Parkhead home.

In friendly fixtures, though, Celtic are regulars in both the over 2.5 goals and BTTS markets, with 5 of their last 6 friendly fixture seeing that outcome. In fact, Celtic have seen a remarkable 35 goals scored in their last 6 friendly matches, including a 6:2 home reversal at the hands of West Ham last summer.

More recently, Celtic played out a 2:2 draw with Blackburn at Parkhead and a 2:2 draw in Poland against Legia and another high-scoring occasion is expected, although Celtic should have enough quality to put a win on the board ahead of their opening league fixture against Aberdeen next weekend. 

Ultimately, Celtic have the greater quality, and a home win seems likely with Postecoglu´s side winning 7 of their last 9 at Parkhead however, it should be noted they have won just 1 of their last 4 home friendly matches, making the over 2.5 goal selection a far more reliable choice while those looking for bigger odds should certainly consider the over 3.5 goal pick, an outcome witnessed in 7 of The Hoops last 8 fixtures.

Head coach Postecoglu is likely to name a strong starting XI with Celtic´s Premier League title defence to begin next week.

As such, Kyogo, Giakoumakis and Jota should lead the Celtic attack, while new signings Moritz Jenz and Aaron Mooey could make their first appearances for The Hoops.
