Bet: Celtic straight win (1.92, Tempobet).
Celtic vs Anderlecht.
Celtic beat the visitors 3-0 back in Belgium, with that being their only points of the group stage so far. That’s not exactly surprising given they were drawn alongside PSG and Bayern Munich. Fortunately it means their opponents are without a single point so far and facing a huge mountain to climb if they are to avoid finishing bottom.
The Scottish champions haven’t been their usual dominant selves so far this season. But still they find themselves seven points clear at the top of the table and looking towards their best European campaign in a long while.
Anderlecht are performing a bit below par as well and find themselves 3rd in the Belgian Pro League, and they have only won three of their last seven matches in all competitions. One of these was their hard-fought hosting of Bayern Munich. They showed definite improvements in that game, they still emerged at the end of a 2-1 defeat.
Away from home, they have lost 3-0 and 5-0 to Bayern Munich and PSG respectively this season. And considering they were well beaten at home against Celtic, the traveling fans will be a bit pessimistic about this match.
To be honest, it’s hard to see Anderlecht getting anything from this game. They haven’t looked anywhere near up to standard in the Champions League so far and Celtic will be buoyed by their away victory against them. Backing the hosts to get the three points looks the best option, along with a 3-1 correct score predictions.
