Europa League Tips: Celtic need to score in Russia


I TIPPED Zenit to qualify before a ball was kicked last week and I’m standing by that tip.

No one was Russian to put money on Celtic but Brendan Rodgers’s side deserved their 1-0 win and probably more.

Three things need to happen in ice-cold St Petersburg to prevent the Hoops being frozen out.

1. They need to score – and preferably first; 2. They must defend for their lives and 3. Zenit have to below their best as they were in Glasgow.

The Russians were about 1-2 to go through at the start of the tie so a best 13-10 with Marathonbet attracts while Celtic are 7-10 favourites at Unibet.

To win on the night Zenit are 3-5 at McBookie while the Scots are 11-2 with bet365.

We know all about Celtic’s poor away record while Zenit won all three at home in the group stage and eight of their last 10 in Europe.

A 1-0 home win that forces extra time pays 6-1 at McBookie while Zenit -1 is better than the qualifying price at 17-10 with Ladbrokes.

A Celtic away goal – and they scored at PSG and Anderlecht – pays 4-6 at Mcbookie and will force Zenit to find three.

Striker Aleksandr Kokorin was kept quiet at Parkhead but will need to shine and is favourite at 15-4 with McBookie to break the deadlock.

Moussa Dembele caused the Russian defence problems in the first leg and is 16-5 at Unibet to score.

Arsenal are through after a 3-0 win at Ostersunds and are 1-3 with Betway at the Emirates to win but Arsene Wenger will field a weakened team ahead of Sunday’s Carabao Cup Final on Sunday so be careful with such things like handicap bets.

Best bets for goals should be Atalanta v Dortmund and Villarreal v Lyon. A both to score double pays 7-5 at betfair. Add Napoli v Leipzig for a treble that pays 16-5 at betfair.

Recommended Bets

  • Zenit -1
  • Kokorin to score first
  • Btts at Atalanta/Villarreal
