Celtic vs Anderlecht: In one of the encounters of this 6th round of the Champions’ League group stage…
The local side Celtic, managed by Brendan Rodgers, and the side of Anderlecht, managed by Hein Vanhaezbrouck, will meet in Glasgow, at the Celtic Park Stadium, with the hosts having 3 points and sitting in 3rd place while the visitors have 0 points and sit in last place of this group C.
On the previous match, the Scottish side travelled to Belgium to win 3-0. This match will help define which team qualifies for the Europa League, depending on the result.
The Scottish side comes into this match already without any possibility of qualifying for the next stage of the Champions League.
Sitting in 3rd place of this group B and only depending on themselves to advance to the Europa League, since they only have to get a draw or even lose by few goals. The team has a positive record in this group stage, although they are coming off a heavy 7-1 loss in Paris on the last round.
As for the Belgians, they come into this match with a very negative record on this edition of the Champions League, not getting a single point on the 5 rounds already played and having one of the worst offensive records of the competition, only managing to score 1 goal so far, on the last match against Bayern.
The team is coming off a more or less positive streak of results internally, but not so much on the European level.
Celtic vs Anderlecht – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match where, unless there’s a disaster, Celtic should confirm their spot in the Europa League, I think we will have some goals, due to the fact that both teams normally intend to play offensive football.
Besides that, and since mainly Anderlecht don’t have nothing to lose, only to gain.
I believe that their defensive line will be really exposed, to try and achieve the “impossible” objective, which will increase the probability of goals to occur in this match.
