Celtic are aiming to reach the group stages of the Champions League for the third straight year and should have nothing to worry about tonight against Alashkert.
Despite their exploits, the Bhoys still enter Europe’s premier club competition at the first qualifying stage and Brendan Rodgers probably sees these games as part of pre-season.
Last week’s 3-0 win in Yerevan was highly convincing and was done without a number of key players and with plenty to spare.
Armenian champions Alashkert were game opponents but the gulf in class was obvious and Celtic are likely to go wild this evening.
With home advantage, they could really cut loose and on last week’s evidence, it is not hard to envisage them winning by five or six.
It is fair to say some of Alashkert’s defending last week was fairly industrial and the amount of possession Celtic enjoyed in the opposition box, combined with the Yellows’ propensity to switch off, suggests a penalty could be on the cards.
8/5 looks a tempting price and there will be plenty of willing takers, most notably Moussa Dembele, who missed out on the scoresheet last week and is 43/20 to break the deadlock.
