Tournament: Champions League. Qualification stage.
Brendan Rodgers’s team has spent a qualitative first match and has won over the rival with the score 3:0. After the goal from the locker room, two more goals were scored during the last 15 minutes of the match.
James Forrest, the right forward who has scored a goal and has given two key passes was a hero of that match. Celtic played according to the scheme 4-3-3 that has bared the rival’s problems on the wings and Celts have used this.
Rogers’s team has struck 13 shots on goal of the rival and in 6 cases has got on target. The fact that 50% of their shots has ended with goals characterizes the attack of the Scottish team by the best possible way.
The team of Varuzhan Sukiasyan hasn’t demonstrated its best football due to the lack of game discipline. On paper the scheme of the team was 4-1-4-1 but in practice wingbacks regularly failed in zones of their responsibility that has led to three missed goals.
The ball rolling from one wing to another or the sharp pass by means of diagonal pass was a usual thing for guests of the first game. Actually, thus the first two goals which in many respects have predetermined the further course of the match have also been scored.
Having missed the goal on the 45th minute, Alashkert had to change the scheme in hope to win back. But in the second half Sukiasyan’s team was owing a ball only for 36% of playing time and have struck 6 shots.

It is difficult to practice betting from the favorite on this line therefore we will try to choose the most suitable option in the market of total. We think, in a starting Eurocup game of the season Rogers’s team will try to please Celtic Park. As the match in Armenia has shown, the rival for this purpose is more than suitable. It will be incredibly hard not to miss minimum 3 times but we believe that the team of Sukiasyan will try to do the best they can.
