Tournament: Champions League. Qualification stage.
One of the most interesting meetings of the first round of the Champions League qualification stage will be held between the strongest teams of Bosnia and Scotland – Sarajevo and Celtic.
The first meeting of these teams will be held on Tuesday on home arena that belongs to Sarajevo. To tell the truth, it is amazing as if they were playing on Celtic Park, the outcome of the game would be solved beforehand.
Celts will have a status of the favorite in away match but not as obvious as on their home stadium. Sarajevo last year has destroyed the Armenian club in the first round of the Europa League, then it has managed to fight on home arena against Atalanta, Italy but has got 8 unanswered goals during away match.
Such a lesson is quite good for Bosnia and means that they should not believe in their forces when they are not as strong as European clubs.
In order to keep the chances of getting into the next stage, Sarajevo has to be strong and not to miss goals on home arena. That is why we should wait for defensive football.
Celtic also has to fear the rival as it is known that such clubs as Sarajevo can be very persistent in the fight for some points. Of course, Celtic will control the territory and will be acting very carefully trying to gain the necessary score.
Our tip: total under (2.5) – 1.76
