Celtic 5/4 to beat Rosenborg in Wednesdays Champions League qualifier
Competition: Champions League qualifier
Market: Celtic win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
After an impressive run of pre-season form and a hefty advantage in hand, Celtic will travel to Norway on Wednesday night as Brendan Rodger’s record-breaking Hoops look to move one step closer to another year in Europe’s top competition.
Starting with the hosts on Wednesday, despite it being a rough month for the Norwegian side that saw them lose their first qualifying game against Valur, Rosenborg still remain in the hunt to lift their fourth consecutive domestic title. After 16 games, Rosenborg have won 10, drawn three and lost three, scoring 26 and conceding 11 in return, they now sit two points adrift of league leaders Brann. However, now losing two of their last three and most recently sacking their long-time boss, coupled with rumors of countless problems behind the scenes, we believe that a high-flying Celtic side will simply be a class above on Wednesday.
As for the visitors, after claiming their 49th Scottish Premiership title last season, Brendan Rodgers’ side also wrote their names in the record book by becoming the first team to win the triple two years on the bounce. Dragging their eye-catching form into their pre-season, The Hoops have now won eight of their 10 outings in all competitions and along with recording six clean sheets in those victories, they have been in lethal form in the final third. In fact, the visitors have now scored three or more goals in their last five consecutive victories. Backing a seventh win on the bounce seems like the safest bet here.
