Having dispatched of Bosnian side FK Sarajevo in the last qualifying round, Celtic now face Nomme Kalju. Celtic’s passage to the 2nd qualifying round was relatively painless, winning home and away to secure a 5-2 aggregate win. Having gone behind in the first leg, the Scots went on to score three away goals and take control of the tie.
Celtic are heavy favourites to progress to the next round where they could face Maribor or Qarabag. For now, Celtic must remain professional and focused on the current fixture. The Scottish side will draw on their experience of Champions League qualification, having faced many similar tasks in recent years.
Contrastingly, Nomme Kalju have rarely found themselves in such a position. The Estonian club have plenty of experience in Europa League qualifying but have not faced many sides of Celtic’s stature. They currently find themselves in 4th place in the Meistriliiga, outside of a Europa League qualifying spot and ten points adrift from the top.
Celtic are heavy favourites to win at 1/20 and represent poor value. Despite failing to keep a clean sheet against FK Sarajevo, the Bhoys are primed to keep a shut out this time round. 1/2 offers good value and should be a reasonably safe bet.
Offering slightly less value than the previous bet, is the win to nil market. Celtic to win to nil is also priced at 1/2. Unless Nomme Kalju spring an unlikely surprise, this outcome looks likely and is well worth the risk.
We expect a straightforward win for Celtic and they could well rack up the goals at home. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 11/10 and has the added benefit of accounting for an unlikely Nomme Kalju goal.
