CELTIC usually get a nosebleed when they travel south of Watford but tonight they can buck the trend of losing away ties in Europe.

Neil Lennon's team seems to be shaping up nicely and head for Holland with a terrific two-goal lead.

While the Hoops would be foolish to throw everything at the Dutch they must be positive and Lennon knows the value of nabbing an away goal.

Utrecht finished seventh in their league last season so that standard of opposition shouldn't prevent Celtic reaching the group stages.

The Parkhead men are a biggest 12-5 to win but a safer could be draw no bet at 6-4 with William Hill and Paddy Power.

Utrecht are 6-5 with Hills to win in 90 minutes and the draw pays 12-5 at Paddy Power.

To qualify for the Europa League, Ladbrokes go 1-5 Celtic with the Dutch 5-1 at Paddy Power and both sides are
28-1 to win after extra time and 40-1 on penalties.

Georgios Samaras is favourite to score first at 7-1 with Ladbrokes but Shaun Maloney could be the shout at 11-1 with the same firm.

Joe Ledley, who opened the scoring against St Mirren at the weekend, is 20-1 at Blue Square and hotshot Beram Kayal 25-1.

Utrecht dangerman van Wolfswinkel is 11-2 with Paddy Power to hit a first goal that would make it sweaty for Celts.

Amazingly, Celtic's last seven goals have been scored by seven different players (Ki, Forrest, Maloney, Ledley, Samaras, Juarez and McCourt). Someone different to net the next is 6-4 with William Hill.

Lennon's side have kept three clean sheets in a row and are 13-5 with Hills to repeat the feat tonight.

Motherwell and Dundee United are also bidding for places in the group stage. United face a tough task in Athens after losing 1-0 at home but it's anyone's guess how the farce over the venue will affect the game.

Betting currently sees AEK at 2-5 with Ladbrokes and Hills and the Arabs 8-1 with Hills but with the match now closed to home fans it could be down who handles the eerie atmosphere the best.

Well earned a lifeline with a last-minute goal in Odense and the 2-1 defeat means a 1-0 win will put them through.

Craig Brown has been a master tactician in Europe so far this season and with not much separating the sides Well could edge through.

They are 7-4 with Chandler to win on the night and 11-5 at Paddy Power to qualify. Odense are 7-4 with Coral and 4-9 at Stan James to make it through.

Euro goals expert Jamie Murphy is 8-1 with Bet365 to hit the opener with Odense's Peter Utaka the 6-1 favourite at Ladbrokes.

Well have scored in every competitive game this season and are 29-20 with Hills to bet one against Odense and 2-1 for none.
