CELTIC have faced Icelandic sides five times in Europe and their record is flawless – five wins, 16 scored and none conceded.

Ronny Deila has been involved in three of those matches for an aggregate of 7-0 and the sequence should continue tonight.

It's almost job done for Celtic after a 2-0 first-leg win against Stjarnan that should have been more emphatic. Deila's side are a best 1-2 at Coral to succeed again and I'm happy to go with that even though there are slight concerns about a dodgy plastic pitch – one on which the Icelanders haven't won on at home this season.

Stjarnan looked a poor outfit and offered little at Parkhead and Celtic can win to nil at 23-20 with McBookie.

Leigh Griffiths missed a penalty last week but bounced back with a hat-trick in the friendly against Eibar – including a spot-kick.

However, that hasn't earned him a start and Nadir Ciftci keeps his place despite picking up a six-game domestic ban for biting Dundee's Jim McAlister last season. Ciftci is 7-2 favourite with various firms.

Last week I tipped Gary Mackay-Steven to score after netting in the first three friendlies but he injured himself in the warm-up and didn't take part.

He is expected to return tonight and I'll be on him at 2-1 at Ladbrokes and McBookie to net. Stuart Armstrong is another possibility at 3-1 with Betfred.

    I was hmming and hahhing about WTN or Celtic on the handicap.

    IN the end I went for -1 AH @ 1.75.

    No need to be greedy, right? ;)

    I’ve backed something similar Mr F. I’ve gone for;

    Celtic to win to nil
    Dundalk vs BATE BTTS

    £10 pays over £40 with BetVictor. What’s everyone else fancy tonight?

    I only got 2/1 for him and 9/2 Brown sas took betvictor prices before 365 had any for scorers but should be nice and easy tonight, will probably miss the 1st 25 mins getting up rd but should be able to watch on phone

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Alves, pitch could be only problem but Stjarnan don’t look a good side.
