Jul 20: Celtic v Red Imps Betting Preview


CELTIC were left red-faced by Red Imps last week and no matter what happens in tonight’s return that embarrassment will live on forever.

Losing to nil in Gibraltar was humiliating and while Celtic will overhaul the 1-0 deficit at Parkhead I’m not sure they’ll run up a huge score.

Red Imps were extremely well organised in the first leg and will set up with 11 men behind the ball.

Celtic will be fitter, boosted by beating Wolfsburg at the weekend and playing on a decent surface in front of a decent crowd. There are no excuses for Brendan Rodgers’s men so where’s the value?

The Hoops are no bigger than 1-14 with Ladbrokes to win on the night and 1-10 at bet365 to qualify. Anyone who believes in miracles can have Red Imps not to lose tonight at 19-2 at McBookie or 11-2 to go through.

Another Red Imps victory pays 55-1 at betfair and a 1-0 repeat success is 150-1 but they’re bets only for those who lumped on Leicester to win the Premier League.

A 1-0 Celtic win to force extra time is 9-1 at McBookie and Ladbrokes and Red Imps are 11-4 at William Hill just to score. But for me Rodgers’ side will make amends and are worth a look at 13-10 with Paddy Power minus three.

Leigh Griffiths was Celtic’s biggest threat in Gibraltar and is favourite to break the deadlock but no prices have yet been revealed.

Callum McGregor has netted some vital goals in Europe and was on target against Wolfsburg at the weekend. If he starts consider him to score.

Celtic will meet the winners of Astana v Zalgiris Vilnius and after a 0-0 draw the Kazakhs are 2-9 at MarathonBet to qualify. Back them on the night at 4-11 with Ladbrokes.

Bets to Consider

Celtic -2

    Time to win back the money I lost in the first leg. It wasn’t pretty and the bank balance took a massive hit but I’m hopeful of a decent return tonight. Just to make everyone aware that first and anytime goalscorer prices are available on the majority of the bookie websites. For some bizarre reason you’re unable to check best prices on oddschecker so it involves you having to trawl through the different sites to find the best price for what you’re looking for. If there’s anything I’m certain about its that a) Celtic will win, b) Celtic will not concede, c) Griffiths will likely score at some point in the game. With Celtic being 1/14 to win and Griffiths 1/3 to score anytime it’s hard to find any decent value. Even with the defenders I back for Celtic the odds are extremely short, however, Skybet are giving us a better opportunity to turn a profit. Griffiths is 10/11 to out score Red Imps. Considering his anytime price and the likelihood of Red Imps not scoring, I feel this represents excellent value. Even if Red Imps did score a goal there’s every chance Griffiths could get a double. I’m also going for a punt on Lustig First Goalscorer @ 20/1 and where I’d normally look to back him anytime, he’s no bigger than 4/1. Instead I’ll go with Lustig to outscore the opposition @ 8/1.
