Celtic vs Midtjylland: Prediction and Betting Tips
New Celtic coach Postecoglou hoping for a good start
Celtic are one of only five clubs in the world to have won over 100 trophies in their history. The Bhoys have won the Scottish League 51 times and the Cup 40 times. Their biggest success came in the 1966-67 season when they won the European Cup and became the first British club to do so. Celtic were also runners-up of the UEFA Cup in 2003. They have won the treble seven times in their history.
Newly appointed coach Ange Postecoglou hasn’t had the perfect preparation for this match losing in their last friendly to Preston North End. The last time Celtic played in the Champions League group stage was in season 2017-18. The Bhoys will hope to do better this season as they will be helped by 9000 fans who are allowed to enter Celtic Park for this match.

Coach Henriksen’s team were off to a losing start in the Danish Superliga last weekend when they lost at home to Odense.

Celtic vs Midtjylland Prediction
Both teams have high ambitions to go far in the qualification round. Celtic want to reach the group stage for the first time since 2017 and Midtjylland are searching for their first-ever back-to-back appearance with Europe’s elite 32 teams.
Coach Postecoglou has some injury worries with his team but he hopes the available players will be up to the task ahead of them as they will be competing in the CL and the Scottish Premiership which kicks off next weekend.
The bookies are favoring Celtic for a win with a generous odds of 2.13 at Vbet. With too much at stake for both teams, we suppose we will see a close match with Midtjylland being a tough opponent for the Scots.
We will back a narrow Celtic win in the first leg.
