Can Linfield pull off a famous win against Celtic in Belfast tonight? They’ve been priced up as big as 40/1 ahead of this clash, with the Scottish champions expected to run away with the first leg of this Champions League qualifier. Can they triumph against the odds and hand Celtic another embarrassing loss? See our three Champions League betting tips for Linfield vs Celtic below.
Linfield will be hoping to pull off a shock similar to Celtic’s defeat at this stage last year when they meet in Northern Ireland today. The Bhoys were handed a humiliating defeat at the hands of Gibraltar’s Lincoln Red Imps, which kicked off a golden season for the side in the worst way. However, they still made it in to the group stage to meet the likes of Man City and Barcelona. Celtic won't have any fans in Belfast tonight.
Celtic’s class should see them cruise past Linfield, we can’t see another Red Imps debacle. Brendan Rodgers returns to his homeland aiming to pull off a win, and this is arguably the perfect draw foe the Scottish champions, barring off the pitch issues. Their players have a short trip over and back, and there’s a considerable gulf here. We see Celtic racking up three goals and keeping a clean sheet. We’re backing over 2.5 goals and BTTS no in our first Linfield vs Celtic betting tips, which is 13/10 with Bet365.
Moussa Dembele should lead the line, having scored in their 9-0 win over Shamrock Rovers. The forward is one of the most sought after forwards in Europe, with plenty of eyes following him. He should easily breach this Linfield defence, and it shouldn’t take the former Fulham forward too long to grab a goal. Our second Linfield vs Celtic prediction is Dembele to get the first goal, which is priced at 12/5 with Ladbrokes who are also offering 25/1 for Celtic to beat Linifield.
Celtic named a strong side in their 9-0 win over Shamrock Rovers, and they should be at full strength in this clash.
