Reasons for betting on Astana vs Celtic tip

We were expecting much more excitement and thrill in the match-up between the Kazakhstan and Scottish champions Astana and Celtic. Instead of that, we got a one-sided domination at Parkhead, where the hosts simply demolished their opponents with five goals to none. We are pretty sure that biggest Hoops fans couldn’t predict such a convincing win by their favorites. Now they have to go to Kazakhstan and finish the rest of the job. The home team will play for honor and the reputation of the club.

Astana overview

In the previous 10 games, the Kazakhstan champion has 2 defeats, and they came in Champions League qualification, on away games. In both of them, they haven’t scored. The first one was in Warsaw where they lost against the Legia 1-0, and the second one 11 days later in Glasgow. In between, they had an excellent period in the domestic championship, where they recorded 5 victories in a row. In all 5 wins, they haven’t allowed a single goal. But it seems that the difference in quality between Kazakhstan championship and the international scene is gigantic. After most recent 5 games at home, Astana had only one drawer and 4 victories. Also, in three contests they kept the clean sheets, and in the same number of games, they’ve scored at least 2 goals. Yuri Logvinenk, Igor Shitov, Dmitri Shomko are all suspended for this match, and it is a huge blow for the home team.

Celtic overview

The Hoops are in a fantastic series. In the previous 9 games, they have 8 victories and one draw. Currently, they are on a hot streak of 7 consecutive wins, 4 most recent, without conceding a goal. Celtic is incredibly efficient during that span as they have scored 27 goals, allowing only one. When we look the latest 5 game played away from Parkhead, we can see one very fascinating thing. The boys in green-white shirts kept the clean sheet in each of them, and on the other hand, they have netted 11 times. Brendan Rodgers will probably save some of his players for the upcoming challenges in the Scottish Premier League. Dedryck Boyata, Moussa Dembélé, Cristian Gamboa, Erik Sviatchenko, and Eboue Kouassi are out for this match.

Head to head matches

This will be the fourth match between these sides in their history. So far, Celtic recorded 2 victories and we have seen one draw. The only game when the Hoops didn’t win, took place in Kazakhstan in July of the last year.

Prediction for Astana vs Celtic tip

This game will be a tricky one for prediction because Brendan Rodgers will certainly make some changes comparing to the lineup in Glasgow. The 44-year-old will give a chance to the younger players to experience the atmosphere in the Champions League games. Therefore we think that a moderate number of goals, between two and three, is a reasonable solution for this match. For the second suggestion, we would choose both teams to score.

DISGRACE, they owe me a fortune and refuse to payout. Customer services refuse to speak to me. I have reported them to the gambling commission, however this means a 12-14 week review while they continue to hold thousands of my money. DO NOT TOUCH, THEY ARE THIEVES
