Anderlecht vs Celtic – UEFA Champions League: Anderlecht hosts Celtic on a 2nd round match of this Champions’ League group stage.
In a group that will clearly be dominated by Bayern and PSG, this match gains a certain importance because it can define which team will advance to the Europa League at the end of this group stage.
On the 1st round we didn’t have any surprise here and both of these teams ended up being battered by the stronger teams in the group.
While Anderlecht lost 3-0 against Bayern in Munich, Celtic was demolished by 5-0 at home against PSG, on an incredible performance by Neymar and the other PSG players.
The Belgians haven’t been having a great start on their domestic league.
They sit only in 7th place of the league table, although we have only had 8 matches played so far.

Anderlecht vs Celtic – Betting Tip and Prediction:
If on the Champions League Celtic didn’t get their dream start, on the Scottish League they have been almost perfect.
On this new season, they have played 7 matches and have won 6 of them, only drawing once. On the Champions League, their “debut” really wasn’t their debut on this edition, since they played in the qualifying stage.
On that qualifying stage, they have knocked out Lingfield, Rosenborg and Astana. This match is decisive for different reasons than usual
This is probably the great chance for these teams to get some points on this group stage, since the 2 favourites should dominate the remaining matches.
I see two balanced teams that weren’t able to show their ability on the previous matches. But I believe that the home advantage could be decisive here.
The odds are very good for Anderlecht at home and the DNB offers some much-needed safety.
