Celtic faces Lille at the Celtic Park on Thursday in a game from Group H of Europa
League. We will discuss this match with you in our football prediction betting tips today.
For Celtic this was a really dissapointing Europa League campaign so far. The Scottish
team managed to win just one point in their five matches played so far. The Brits are at the
bottom of the group with just one point won so far. Celtic are five points behind the third
Sparta Praha, so they are going to finish 4th – that’s clear now.
The manager Neil Lennon won’t be happy with the way his team performs in Europe this
season. Last week Celtic suffered their 4th defeat in the group when they faced Milan at
the San Siro. Celtic actually started the game brilliantly and scored twice in the first 14
minutes. Rogic and Edouard scored for the Scottish side, but they were unable to hold on –
Milan scored four goals until the end of the game.
Lille are playing to win this group on Thursday. The French team is currently leading the
standings with 11 points, but they are just one point ahead of the second Milan. This
means the Dogs must beat Celtic at any cost in order to be one hundred percent sure in
winning this group.
Last week Lille recorded their third win in this group so far. Christophe Galtier’s team
hosted Sparta Praha and won this game with 2-1. Sparta scored first, but Lille won it with a
quick brace from Burak Yilmaz between the 80th and the 84th minutes.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Europa League game between
Celtic and Lille at the Celtic Park. The French team is very close to winning this group, but
they need to win on Thursday.
