Oct 19: Champions League Preview


CELTIC’S dynamic display against Man City has raised expectations but they’re still underdogs in matchday three.

That’s the way Brendan Rodgers will like it as he prepares for a make-or-break Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Celtic are a best 9-4 at Unibet to win and should at least take a point from poor travellers.

They are 7-10 at Coral not to lose and 5-4 with McBookie draw no bet which is worth a look.

If Rodgers can get his men to rise to the occasion the way the did against City a win is possible.

Gladbach – a biggest 13-10 with McBookie – have injury problems with star men Raffael and Thorgan Hazard almost out and away form is poor.

They’ve one just one of their last 14 on the road in the Bundesliga and were well beaten 4-0 at Man City.

Moussa Demebele was the hero against City with a double and the French striker is 2-1 at 888sport to add to his tally and 13-2 with McBookie and bet365 to score first.

Every time Celtic scored against City they gave one away and keeping clean sheets remains a problem. Even with their injury doubts Borussia are likely to find the net and both teams to score pays no bigger than 8-15 at bet365.

With fans roaring them on Celtic netted early against City and could do so again. A home goal before half-time pays 21-20 with Betway.

The other Group C game sees Pep Guardiola return to Barcelona with Man City. Going by what we’ve seen it should be a goalfest and over 3.5 goals should be backed at 11-10 with William Hill.

Lionel Messi is back after his injury and Guardiola once admitted he’s impossible to stop. Take Messi to score at 19-20 with betfair. Sidekick Luis Suarez is even shorter at 4-5 with Coral – after all he has hit 45 goals in 45 games this year.

Barcelona are 1-2 with McBookie and William Hill and should so do. It’s pretty short though and as I expect them to score look at Barca and both to score at 31-20 with boylesports.

Arsenal are a best 1-6 with Ladbrokes to beat Ludogerets at home and they can continue on their winning run after six Premier League victories in a row.

Four points from their first two games with PSG and Basel were acceptable and it should be seven against the Bulgarians who have one point.

For a scorer consider Theo Walcott who has seven goals in nine outings and has been impressive if you ignore his non-event of a game for England in Slovenia. Walcott is 6-5 at Betfred to score again.

Bayern Munich are winless in three as they entertain PSV and the Dutch are also without a victory in three. Having lost away to Atletico Madrid I expect the Germans to bounce back.

Best price is just 2-9 at Ladbrokes and Bayern -1 a skinny 8-13 with betfair.

Robert Lewandowski is a biggest 4-9 at Ladbrokes and bet365 to score so instead try Thomas Muller at 13-14 with Unibet.

Elsewhere Napoli should beat Besiktas at home and PSG should see off Basel in the French capital. Atletico Madrid are extremely short at Rostov in Russia.
