Leagues Tipped:

FINDING value last week when Celtic visited Belfast was tough – and it's the same tonight.

I fancied Brendan Rodgers's side to win by three but they fell a goal short.

The Scots romped into a 2-0 lead but that's how it stayed thanks to a combo of poor finishing and great goalkeeping by Roy Carroll.

It's finished as a contest – Linfield are 55-1 to triumph on the night with McBookie and Ladbrokes – and again the question is how many Celtic will win by.

Bookies have set the handicap mark at -3 and I expect the Parkhead side to make it this time in front of their own fans who will demand nothing but a 100 per cent in what should be a white-hot atmosphere.

Celtic are 21-20 with Betway to win by four or more and 11-5 at Ladbrokes to cover the -4 handicap.

Two bets that did come in last week were Scott Sinclair to score and Celtic to win to nil. This time all you can have is 1-2 (William Hill) and 1-2 (Paddy Power).

Sinclair is 31-10 with McBookie to score first while Moussa Dembele is 13-5. Leigh Griffiths started instead of the Frenchman at Windsor Park but could miss out and UEFA are investigating whether he sparked crowd trouble after tying a Celtic scarf to the goalpost on the final whistle.

There is no love lost between the sets of supporters and bookings could be a play with Celtic having five booked in the first leg. Buy bookings if you can find a price.

    Booking before 29th minute is 10/11 with PaddyPower

    Or what about the following

    Time of First Linfield booking
    0-15 mins @ 13/2
    16-30 mins @ 3/1

    My thinking was to back both.

      Certainly should be a booking before 29th minute and I’ll be looking at card prices in the morning.
      Both Linfield bets could come up but some refs are reluctant to show and early one.

    • chris guy 5 years ago

      Saying that though he could book someone as a warning to others. I’ve also noticed the ref has given out 9 red cards in his career, all to the away team.

    Paul I made a mistake. Those prices aren’t for time of First Linfield booking it’s just for a booking between those minutes therefore both bets could pay out if lucky enough.

    Long time reader first time poster. No great value in this match so I’m going with over 5 first half corners at 11/10. I expect Celtic to put on a show in front of their own fans which will mean a lot of last ditch defending for linfield.

    Celtic done me in the first fixture goals market Mr f but this one iv been waiting on celtic could cover the handicap -3 In first half there fans will certainly be demanding goals with no let up and there will b no love lost either
    So it’s -4 and -5 for me tonight the difference in class is vast.
