Reasons for betting on Celtic vs Astana tip

Celtic overview

Brendan Rodgers’ team defeated Partick Thistle minimally in the previous round of the Scottish championship with 1-0. That was the 51st straight match in Scottish competitions in which they have not lost. When we look at the Champions League games during these qualifications, Celtic hasn’t allowed a single goal. In four matches played, they have scored 7 and did not concede. After defeating Linfield with 6-0 on aggregate, the next victim was Rosenberg. They beat the Norwegian champion with a single goal scored in an away match by James Forrest. Scottish champion will be heavily handicapped because Moussa Dembele is not going to participate in these two encounters. The French international has a hamstring injury, and he will be unavailable until September. Besides him, Erik Sviatchenko and Daedric Boyata are also having troubles with injuries.

Astana overview

The Kazakhstan champion reached this stage of qualifications after a fierce fight with the Polish champion Legia Warsaw. They’ve lost the game in Poland with 1-0, but they were better on aggregate with 3-2. That is Astana’s only defeating the previous 10 games. Along with that loss, they had one draw, and that happened in the first round of Champions League qualifications against Spartaks from Lithuania, 1-1. What is characteristic for the games in which they participate is the hard defense. 8 of the last 10 games ended with both teams not to score. Also, 7 of those clashes finished with Astana keeping the clean sheets. That pretty much tells you that they have a pretty solid backline. Igor Shmitov and Dimitri Shomko will be suspended for this game.

Head to head matches

During the previous qualification campaign, Celtic was better after a thriller in the second game. The first meeting in Kazakhstan ended with a draw 1-1. In the second one, Celtic was better after the penalty in the last seconds of the match. The final result was 2-1, and Moussa Dembele scored a very valuable goal for the Scottish champion in the 93rd minute. Both of the host’s goals were from the penalties, and the guests ended with 9 players on the field.

Prediction for Celtic vs Astana tip

Under 2.5 goals is the logical suggestion for this game. We see that over 80% of the games in which Celtic and Astana participate, were ended with both teams not to score. And that is going to be our next suggestion. This matchup is going to be very tight and cautious, and this is why we think that a low number of goals will be in focus here.

I would give 0 if I could went downhill . Being loyal customer just realized how bad service is . Cheating on games nearly pays out anything . Even bets sometimes sneaky way u want to bet this amount and other amount pop out as I placed 4 bets same time apparently ( untrue obviously ) technical issues on settling bet still customer lose on that. Complaint taking ages and never replied . New customers watch out on sneaky tricks. Hopefully uk gambling commission will find something as I'm fed up . I don't mind to lose fairly .
