Is there anything to write about the second leg of the game, after the first leg finished with a 7-0 scoreline for one of the teams?
Our first impression would be to say no, but let’s see if Celtic can mount a challenge against Barcelona at home.
They sure didn’t in their game in Catalunya, but there are some new developments that might make this game interesting.

Betting Odds At Online Football Betting Sites
FT Result: Celtic 12.00 or 11/1 Draw 6.00 or 5/1 Barcelona 1.28 or 2/7
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.90 or 10/11 No 1.90 or 10/11
First off, Celtic play good football at home. Even though they’ve lost their game against Gladbach, they’ve obtained a 3-3 draw against City on their home ground, so they are capable of scoring – even more than once.
They’re in good form at the moment and are looking to produce a surprise, in order to come a little closer to 3rd place in the group.
A win could even see them leapfrog their direct competition for 3rd place and make them stare directly at a Europa League spot.
Also, let’s remember that they have beaten Barcelona at home in the past : a 2-1 victory in 2012.
On the other hand, Luis Enrique’s team is very inconsistent at the moment. They’ve just managed a 0-0 draw against Malaga at home during the weekend, despite enjoying 81% of possession.
They are also coming after a 3-1 defeat against City in the Champions League, which means the team will want to return to its winning ways rather quickly.
A win against Celtic means they will mathematically be qualified from the group, depending on the result of the other game to see if they’ll finish 1st or not.
Celtic vs Barcelona Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we think Barcelona will score goals here. We think they’ll win the game as well, although the odds for this away victory aren’t the best.
At least 2 goals from the away side is a smart bet, as well as a “both teams to score bet”. Messi is the favorite goalscorer if he will play, while an over 3,5 goal bet is another great idea. Good luck!

Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize?

Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough?

Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it?
