FEB 26: INTER MILAN v CELTIC BETTING PREVIEW

celticvrangers

CELTIC beat Inter Milan to win the 1967 European Cup Final and luckily for them the game was played in Lisbon.

On Italian soil the Hoops haven’t won in 11 attempts and I can’t see them breaking the sequence tonight.

Unless we get a second 3-3 or another high-scoring draw Celtic will need to win at the San Siro to reach the last 16 and it doesn’t look on.

Despite their troubles Inter have lost just three times at home this season while Celtic’s poor record on the road is well documented having won two of their last 12 away games in the Champions League and one of 14 on the road in the Europa League.

Ronny Deila’s men deserve great credit for keeping alive their Europa League hopes after looking down and out when they trailed 2-0 early on in Glasgow last week but asked plenty of questions of Inter Milan as they battled to draw thanks to John Guidetti’s last-gasp leveller.

I predicted both teams to score and for them to do it three times apiece was a surprise – but there were defensive frailties evident on both sides.

The Bhoys are a biggest 11-2 at 888sport to win on the night and 9-2 at McBookie to qualify. Inter are massive favourites at 3-5 with McBookie and 1-6 to qualify which sums up the task Celtic face.

I tipped Xherdan Shaqiri to score in the first leg – and the tips don’t (didn’t) lie! Shaqiri looked a class act and the fact he was rested for Monday’s win at Palermo – Inter’s third in a row in Serie A – stresses he’s Roberto Mancini’s key man.

Take the Swiss star to net at 13-8 with McBookie and he is 6-1 at Ladbrokes to hit the opener. Rodrigo Palacio, also on target at Celtic Park with a double, is 11-2 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

Celtic have conceded 10 in their last three Europa League contests while Inter have kept one clean sheet in their last eight outings.

Those stats suggest more goals and I’m on both to score at 19-20 with Ladbrokes and over 2.5 goals at 5-6 with McBookie.

If Celtic do score the strike could come from Stuart Armstrong who was magnificent in the home tie and he is 7-1 with 888sport.

    Shaqiri to score anytime is 2/1 with Spreadex Sports.

  2. jimba 2 years ago

    Guidetti anytime for me. @ 7/2 also celtic over 1.5 goals 13/4 worth a wee punt, good luck all today!!

  3. raaljaca 2 years ago

    Inter to qualify and Deila to blame the lack of competition in Scotland 1/33

    • highseastim 2 years ago

      Well it was rather easy against that Edinburgh league leaders of the division that everyone said would be the most competitive!!

      Raal: Hey, stop blaming us Norwegians for everything wrong about the SPL, will you? : D

  4. Alves 2 years ago

    Celtic to get 4+ corners 4/5

    Celtic RT7 8/1 (small stakes)

    Also will chuck a quid on RT9 at 20/1 as yi never know, chances are Inter will take the lead then Deila will have to go for it

    Jimba is wait to see if Guidetti starts if I were you

    I think Celtic have a great chance of scoring tonight @ 1.7 and 4.33 to score 2+ is in with a shout. They scored 2 in Salzburg and 3 in Zagreb.

    Not decided what I am going for yet but there is every chance, I think, of another goal fest. Inter play a pressing game from the top. Would it not be a folly to change their style and sit in? I might be wrong but I can’t see them doing that. Another 4-3? +6.5 goals at 25/1?

    Maybe i am getting carried away here 😀

      Jimmybeee, he’s as good as any. Just hoping for a good like last week although boy’s fitba training is 6pm so I’ll be listening to it rather than watching. Off to walk the dug – the sun’s come out which is a first in Scotland this year.

    The Nerazzuri have won six and lost none of their last 10 games in European competition (including qualifiers).

    Think Scott Brown is worth a tenner to score anytime @ 14/1 with 888Sport
