Reason For Celtic vs Anderlecht Betting Tips
Celtic will be quick to see other restriction on Tuesday as they leave three back to back matches against Motherwell in local rivalry. They initially beat them in the Scottish League Cup Final before drawing away in the Scottish Premiership and then hammering them 5-1 at Celtic Park on Saturday.
Presently they turn their attentions towards a potentially lucrative knockout campaign in the Europa League. All they require is to avoid defeat against Anderlecht, yet after their performance in the turn around fixture, Brendan Rodgers will expect another win for his side.
Celtic beat the guests 3-0 back in Belgium, with that being their exclusive points of the group stage up until this point. That’s not exactly shocking given they were drawn alongside PSG and Bayern Munich, and fortunately it means their rivals are without a solitary point up until this point and facing an immense mountain to climb on the off chance that they are to avoid completing base.
The Scottish champions haven’t been their usual dominant selves so far this season, yet at the same time they get themselves seven points clear at the highest point of the table and looking towards their best European campaign in a drawn-out period of time.
Anderlecht are playing out a bit less than impressive as well and get themselves third in the Belgian Pro League, and they have just won three of their last seven matches in all rivalries. One of these was their hard battled facilitating of Bayern Munich, and while they indicated distinct changes in that game, despite everything they developed on the finish of a 2-1 defeat.
Away from home they have lost 3-0 and 5-0 to Bayern Munich and PSG individually this season, and considering they were well beaten at home against Celtic, the traveling fans will be somewhat cynical about this match.
To be completely forthright, it’s hard to see Anderlecht getting anything from this game. They haven’t gazed anywhere near upward to standard in the Champions League up until now and Celtic will be floated by their away triumph against them. Backing the hosts to get the three points looks the best alternative, along with a 3-1 amend score expectations.
We’re also backing Scott Sinclair to locate the net. The previous Manchester City man scored six goals in Champions League qualifying and has gotten five times in the Premiership this season, so backing him to get on the scoresheet here looks a decent decision.
Celtic have won two and lost one of their three past gatherings with Anderlecht.
