Bookmaker Coral have come up with a cracker of a promotion for the UEFA Champions League betting on Wednesday night. It is a big night of survival for Celtic in the group stage of the competition after having been handed a rough draw. They face up to the might of Barcelona again and need to find a win which will keep their hopes alive of getting out of the group. It’s not likely to happy and punters have been flooding money towards the Catalans to take the win at Celtic Park.
That’s not hard to see why either because Barcelona routed the Bhoys 7-0 at the Nou Camp back on match day one, so it’s hard to see the Scottish CHampions overturning that. In fact, Celtic have gone up against Barcelona nine times before in the UEFA Champions League and have lost seven of them. With Celtic not having won yet in the group and with them not having kept a clean sheet in any of their last 17 Champions League games, and with them not having won any of their last six at home in UEFA group stage competition, it’s not looking good for them here.
Barcelona have the power to turn on and destroy teams as they have shown already. Going into match day five they were the top scorers in the group stage and Neymar has scored five goals in three Champions League games against Celtic, while Lionel Messi has already scored seven goals in three Champions League fixtures this season. With the mighty Catalans having won 21 of their 27 Champions League games under boss Luis Enrique, there doesn’t look to be much of a lifeline here for Celtic.
After Barcelona were beaten by Manchester City on match day four and can feel the Citizens breathing down their neck now in the race for top spot, it’s likely that Celtic are going to feel some backlash from Barcelona in this one too.
