THE focus is on Sunday's Old Firm showdown but first Celtic and Rangers need to negotiate Europa League hurdles.

Celtic should ease past Suduva but it's tougher for Steven Gerrard's men who take a 1-0 lead to Russian Euro rookies Ufa.

I tipped Gers to qualify last week but expected them to win 2-0 or 3-0 at home so this one's finely balanced.

Gerrard's men should still qualify and are just 1-4 at bet365 to do so but may need to score and that pays 2-5 at Coral.

Before the 3-3 weekend draw at Motherwell the Scots had been defensively sound but aside from conceding three goals it was worrying to see them battered in the closing stages.

Ufa aren't high scorers and their only goals in seven games were home and away to Progres Niederkorn and they conceded in both legs to the Luxembourg side.

So if Gers score they should make the groups as Ufa are unlikely to hit three. Maribor are a better side than Ufa and Gerrard managed to inspire a 0-0 draw in Slovenia so I'm on the Ibrox men to win or draw at 8-15 with William Hill.

Alfredo Morelos could be again joined up top by Kyle Lafferty who netted two on his debut against Well. Lafferty is 11-5 with bet365 to score tonight with Morelos 8-5 at Coral.

Celtic beat Suduva 8-1 at home 16 years ago but today's side lacking a cutting edge. A 1-0 win against Hamilton summed up their season with chances missed.

Brendan Rodgers's side are massive favourites to win at 1-7 with bet365 so if you want value you have to put faith in them winning by two or three.

I wouldn't go past minus one which pays 2-5 at bet365. Minus two is evens with McBookie.

Moussa Dembele looks on his way to Lyon and Odsonne Edouard won't start so Leigh Griffiths is the man to back for first scorer at 3-1 with bet365.

Burnley face an uphill task as they trail Greeks Olympiakos 3-1. Sean Dyche's men haven't won a tie in 90 minutes and going out might not be the worst outcome as they continue to struggle in the Premiership.

The Turf Moor men are 5-4 at bet365 to win the tie and 9-2 at Betway to qualify but a draw over 90 minutes could be the call at 12-5 with Marathonbet.

Recommended Bets

  • Rangers to score/Celtic -1
  • Griffiths to score first
  • Burnley v Olympiakos draw
