SCOTTISH football expert Mr Fixit (@MrFixitTips) previews Tuesday night’s Champions League qualifier between Celtic and Astana.
Astana v Celtic | Tuesday 22nd August 2017, 16:30 | BT Sport
Celtic’s visit to Astana is more of a sightseeing exercise than a trip to hell.
Brendan Rodgers’s men are all but through after a 5-0 first-leg demolition so Tuesday night’s tie is difficult to call.
Astana have only pride to play for while Celtic must ensure there is no complacency as they want to put on a show before Thursday’s draw for the groups.
The Kazakhstan outfit are 60/1 with Unibet to qualify and there’s no chance despite being unbeaten in Champions League matches at home. This includes draws against Galatasaray, Atletico Madrid and Benfica and victories over APOEL and Legia Warsaw.
They have though kept just two clean sheets in those games so while the Match Odds depends on attitude on the night, Both Teams To Score could be a good shout at 8/13 with William Hill.
If Astana give it a go Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals could be on at 11/10 at Coral.
Both clubs are 17/10 to win and it’s not the easiest of calls considering the state of play.
Leigh Griffiths tormented the Kazakhs at Parkhead and is 13/10 (Winner) to net while Scott Sinclair, who hit a first-leg double, is 9/4 with Betfred.
