Group C of the Champions League produces some of the most interesting games on Wednseday. Apart from Guardiola’s famous return to Camp nou with his new team, Manchester City, the group also features a great game for third place – Celtic vs. Moechengladbach. The first episode of the clash will take place in Glasgow, where Celtic are unbeaten this year. Will the Germans break this record?
Celtic vs Borussia Monchengladbach – 19/10/2016
Betting Odds: Celtic 2.87 or 15/8 Draw 3.70 or 27/10 M’gladbach 2.45 or 29/20
Their recent form seems to state otherwise. After a bad defeat against Schalke and a 0-0 draw against Hamburg (where they missed 2 penalties), the team is struggling in the Bundesliga.
They clearly have to up their game and return to their winning ways, and quick – if they lose against Celtic, they will be in a very tough place, even if they win the next game in Germany.
Sitting last with 0 points after 3 games is a position nobody wants to find themselves in – and they will do everything in their power to avoid that.
Meanwhile, Celtic impressed in their last CL outing against Manchester City – a 3-3 thrilled that delighted neutral viewers. Their form in the domestic league is pretty much irrelevant, since they have no-one serious to compete against there.
If they manage to win their next game, they have a good chance of winning 3rd place in the group and qualifying for the Europa League.
They have another big advantage – they play Barcelona at home in the last game, when the Catalans will surely be already qualified.
Celtic vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Tips
That being said, we think that we will see a nervy game, where both teams will be looking for victory. Our best betting idea is both to score – they’ve both looked good in attack but less-than-good in defense.
If you really want to bet on the final result, we recommend 1X. The encounter will be tough, but we back the British team to avoid defeat.
Both Teams To Score – Yes: 1.57 or 4/7 with ComeOn
Double Chance – Celtic or Draw: 1.58 or 10/17 with ComeOn
