Tournament: Europa League. 1/16 final.
The return leg of the 1/16 final of the Europa League will be held between Valencia Spain and Celtic Scotland on the 21st of February.
In the first match the Bats have showed their best qualities in attack and didn’t allow the rivals be active near the gates.
In this situation the score 2:0 that was gained on Celtic Park has practically ensured the getting into the next round of the tournament.
Celtic seemed to be rather tame during the first home game. The main problem of the Green and Whites was the creation of the scoring chances.
Valencia was comfortable with straight attacks of the rivals and the standards didn’t carry special threats.
Even when the Scottish team got closer to the gates of the rival the Portuguese goalkeeper was perfect in his actions.
It won’t be easy for Celtic to win back the handicap of 2 goals and simultaneously not to let the quick attack of the Oranges to score.
Of course, the team of Brendan Rodgers will fight till the last second. But Valencia has better gaming conditions and has an advantage, so it has to move further and probably Valencia will celebrate victory in the second match.
Our tip: Valencia to win – odds 1.64
