Celtic will be hoping to take a giant step towards Champions League football when they take on Romania’s CFR Cluj this Wednesday night.
Neil Lennon couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season. So far in these Champions League qualifiers, Celtic have won all four of their games scoring 12 goals and conceding two.
What’s more, the Scottish champions kicked off their Premiership campaign with a statement-making 7-0 thrashing of St. Johnstone.
CFR Cluj, meanwhile, are currently second in the Romanian top tier after four league games. Cluj have won three of those four fixtures and what’s more, they’re unbeaten in seven straight competitive games.
Looking at the betting, the situation is pretty tight. Celtic are the favourites in this opening leg however, because this first fixture is away in Romania, Cluj are well priced at 15/8.
Celtic kick started the season in brutal fashion and our recommendation is to back the Scottish side.
However, we are backing them to win only by a margin of one goal at the price of 3/1.
Celtic to win by a margin of one goal – 3/1 bet365*
