UEFA Qualifiers: Celtic FC

Celtic vs Midtjylland

Celtic have just experienced an innocuous loss to Preston North End. However, in that minority and seemingly unimportant can affect their own ticket to go on. In theory, Celtic is the reigning runner-up of the Scottish league, the second strongest team in this tournament. Last season, the Celtic Park home team finished spectacularly with 14 points more than the third-placed team Hibernian.

UEFA Qualifiers: Celtic FC

Although they have to face the runner-up of the Danish league in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, with what is currently available Celtic will likely not have much difficulty in finding a favorable result at home. Specifically, the Celtic Park home team is in a very good form. In the last 5/6 matches at home, they are unbeaten, including 4 convincing victories.

Celtic scored an average of 2.83 goals per game and conceded only 3. With such form, any opponent who encounters the reigning runner-up of the Scottish league must be concerned, not just Midtjylland. That anxiety is also heightened when in the hands of coach Angelos Postecoglou there are three formidable strikers: Leigh Griffiths, Albian Ajeti and Liel Abada.

Those must be the great dangers that Midtjylland must pay attention to if he does not want to leave Scotland with sadness with his face. Remember, in the last friendly match against Sigma Olomouc, the home team of MCH Arena had to work very hard to overcome the opponent 2-1 after 90 minutes of intense competition. Previously, coach Bo Henriksen's teachers and students were in danger of losing their form after losing 2-3 on Lech Poznan's field.

Successfully correcting mistakes, Midtjylland are the ones with good spirits. However, that is not all and it is not a good fulcrum that allows the Danish representative to depend too much on luck. Remember that Celtic is completely different from Sigma Olomouc and coach Bo Henriksen's teachers and students are having a bad record in the recent UEFA Champions League arena: not winning 6 matches.
