Betting tips for Celtic vs RB Leipzig 08.11.2018
Celtic and Leipzig face each other at Celtic Park in Glasgow on Thursday to challenge Group 4 of the Europa League. Celtic started their campaign well in the competition but quickly succumbed to two consecutive defeats and is far from qualifying places. On the other side comes a Leipzig who has been consistent in all competitions he contests, demonstrating a good timing and especially a good defensive organization.
Celtic are in third place with 6 points, the result of 2 wins and 1 loss, with 7 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. Celtic started the match well, winning at home to Rosenborg (1-0), but failed to win the following two challenges, falling at home to Red Bull Salzburg (3-1) and Leipzig (2-0). The team are already 3 points behind the 2nd place, this their opponents in the game, and winning here is essential for the goals of the Scottish team, which aims to move forward.
Having lost in Germany, Celtic won the following 3 challenges, all for national competition, scoring a total of 13 goals without conceding any in return. Celtic Park is known for the hostile atmosphere it imposes on visitors, and the Scots will try to take advantage of it to leave happy in the outcome of the encounter. It should be noted that in the 11 games played at home in all competitions, Celtic won 10 and tied the remainder, scoring 26 goals and only 5 goals conceded. In the previous meeting between the two teams, Brendan Rodgers was accused of having used the best players in the starting eleven, and is now to see how he will get on the field. Still, the English coach sees himself with some conditioned players, with Eboue Kouassi from injury, and Scott Brown, Leigh Griffiths, Oliver Ntcham, Jozo Simunovic and Cristian Gamboa all in doubt.
Leipzig is in second place with 6 points, 2 wins and 1 defeat, with 7 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. Leipzig had a very positive entry into the competition, losing the first group challenge at Red Bull Salzburg (2-3), but redeeming themselves by winning the next two matches, first at Rosenborg (1-3) and then on to Celtic (2-0).
The Bulls have a fantastic moment in all competitions, consist of results, are organized defensively, solid at midfield level and lethal in attack, coming here without losing any of the last 10 consecutive games, winning 7 of them, and have conceded no goals in the last 6 consecutive games. The team then arrives in Scotland with good confidence in this match, but has to deal with the absences of Poulsen and Timo Werner, both injured, and with the presence of Emil Forsberg.
Leipzig have come here in a great moment of form, undefeated for 10 consecutive games and conceding no goals in the last six. However, Celtic have yet to lose at home this season, winning 10 of 11 games played here. Leipzig has a much more talented squad, but Celtic Park's atmosphere helps balance things out. This will be an intense and balanced game, but Leipzig are favorites to take the 3 points home, even having enough arguments to confirm this favoritism.
