Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tips and predictions ahead of this Champions League qualifier, kicking off at 7:45pm on Wednesday, 2nd August 2017. Read on for our tipsters’ best bets ahead of this crucial qualifying clash today.
Celtic face an uphill struggle to make it through the Champions League qualifiers following their 0-0 draw at home to Rosenborg last week. Can they turn this tie on its head in tonight's return leg, or will the hosts edge it and book a place in the final qualifying round?
This is a massive test for the Scottish Champions, who struggled to make a breakthrough in the first leg. Their qualifying record is littered with blanks on the road, so Rosenborg will be hoping to grab a clean sheet and grab a goal to qualify for the next round of the UEFA Champions League tonight. With so much on the line after their 0-0 in the first leg, we struggle to see goals in this one, making under 2.5 goals stand out. That’s our first Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tip, which is priced at 17/20 with Bet365.
See all our Champions League predictions for the new season.
The Bhoys haven’t claimed a big away win in this competition since 2012, and their losses to Lincoln Red Imps, Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Malmo on the road suggest that the Norwegians will progress in today's Champions League second leg. This has been an awful summer for Scottish football in Europe, and we can see it getting even worse. We’re backing a home win in our second Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tip, which is priced at 6/4 with William Hill.
Celtic shouldn’t make too many changes ahead of this clash, as the Champions League is their main priority this term.
Celtic lost 2-0 at Rosenborg in their last trip here back in 2001. All three meetings between them have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
We're predicting Rosenborg to edge this one and progress for today's football betting tips in the Champions League, given how poor the Bhoys are on the road. We can’t see Celtic getting that crucial away goal in a very tight encounter. Our final Rosenborg vs Celtic betting tip is a 1-0 correct score prediction for the hosts, which is well priced at 9/1 with BetFred.
