Bhoys in the mood to progress

350

Having safely negotiated the first qualifying round of the Champions League, Celtic take on Norwegian champions Rosenborg in round two.

The Bhoys powered past Alashkert 6-0 on aggregate in round one, while Rosenborg needed a last-gasp Nicklas Bendtner penalty to edge out Valur Reykjavík.

Celtic to win by two goals – 14/5

Last season the two sides could only be separated by a single goal over two legs in this competition, but the Bhoys appear to have started the new campaign brightly and will hope to build up a decent advantage in their home first leg on Wednesday.

The Rosenborg defence were unable to keep Icelanders Valur at bay in either leg of their first-round tie and will be tested more severely by Celtic.

A back-up option worth considering is Celtic to win to zero on offer at 1/1, which could offer a small return.

Red Star Belgrade v Suduva – Draw 27/4

Meanwhile two Balkan sides, including former European Cup winners Red Star Belgrade, are facing tough ties on Tuesday evening.

Red Star play the first leg of their tie at home to Lithuanian champions Suduva, who proved that they cannot be taken lightly by knocking out Apoel Nicosia in the last round – losing the second leg in Cyprus by a single goal to edge through 3-2 on aggregate.

Hapoel Be’er Sheva to win – 14/5

Croats Dinamo Zagreb also have a big task ahead of them, with Israeli champions Hapoel Be’er Sheva having disposed of Flora Tallinn 7-2 on aggregate in the first qualifying round.

Dinamo have not started their season yet and will need to ensure that there is no rustiness in their performance, otherwise they could get a very nasty shock.
