Celtic vs Astra by Jamesington

Celtic, lying 5th in the Scottish Premiership, seem to be lacking motivation domestically in the knowledge that they will more than likely win the title without playing at their best. In the Europa League however the Scottish champions should not be fully motivated to give their all in every match - in the knowledge that they have a real opportunity to progress from this group.


Astra Giurgiu on the other hand have brought their poor domestic form into the Europa League and are not likely to leave Scotland with any points. They have not won any of their last five matches and lost their first two EL group games 5-1 and 2-1. Indeed away from home they have lost 3 of their past 5 matches by at least 2 goals.


Celtic battled to a 2-2 draw against Salzburg, who beat Astra in Romania, and took all 3 points at Parkhead against Dinamo Zagreb thanks to an early Kris Commons goal. Given that the Scots were good enough to beat Zagreb at home, it should be a worry for Astra that they were routinely taken apart by the Croatian side 5-1 (the game was 3-0 at half time).


Celtic have historically done well at home in Europe and before this campaign had won 4 of their last 6 home EL games by more than 1 goal (1 of the games they didn't win was against Atletico Madrid). There is great value on offer with the Bhoys available at nearly 3.00 on the handicap.


Back the Glasgow side to win by more than one at 2.875 with Unibet.


Good luck!

Astra can be dangerous. They don't have a bad team, but are inconsitent. In a good day, they can be a tough nut to crack for most of the teams in Europa League. No bet for me, but good luck!
