The first chosen game starts at 21:45, and the protagonists are Celtic and Alkmaar. The match will be played at Celtic Park in Glasgow. The two teams are in good shape, with one defeat and four victories in the most recent five official duels. In the semifinals of the qualifiers, Celtic beat Jablonec, with the general score of 7-2. Over the weekend, Celtic also won the Hearts Cup match. On the other hand, Alkmaar ended the series with four consecutive victories in the training matches, with the last game in the championship. Alkmaar lost away to Waalwijk, final score 1-0. The hosts ' offence is much fitter than the guests'. We will propose here a prediction of the host's victory and goal scored in the second half.
Good odds for Celtic
Sometimes I am so surprised by the good offers of the bookmaker that I do not dare to be happy with them.
And I'm starting to look around to see if there's a catch in them.
Judge for yourself this particular case.
The generous bet365 kindly gives us the odds for Celtic.
Which requires only at least a 50% chance of their victory in order for our bet to be valuable.
I hurry to take it early with an almost large amount of the bet, because by the beginning of the match there will not be such a good offer.
Many changes in I Alkmaar
Here are the arguments for my football prediction.
1. Celtic have already found their game (in football language) and are in a series of 4 victories.
2. The Scots have already gained a lot of playing practice.
3. I Alkmaar played only one official match and lost it.
4. The Dutch have been abandoned by many key players from last season.
More are expected to travel in different directions.
Forecast for Celtic - AZ
You see, Alkmaar's policy is to make profits by selling players.
And this match comes at a very inopportune moment for them. Namely during the still open transfer window.
Guaranteed thoughts of both management and players are in another direction.
For Celtic, however, it is not only very important for them to enter a group of the Euro tournament for the 5th time in a row.
But it is also crucial for Angelos Postekoglu to prove to management that it is not an "accidental presence".
What opinions crept in about the new Celtic manager with the initial failures of the team.
For such conditions around the match, I can easily afford a bet significantly above average.
