Brendan Rodgers hasn’t done a lot of transfer business but the millions splashed out on Odsonne Edouard looks to be money well spent.

The Celtic manager has teamed up Edouard and Moussa Demeble in friendlies and last week’s first leg in Alashkert to great effect.

Edouard volleyed the opener in Armenia as Celtic closed in on the second qualifying round with a 3-0 romp.

Tonight’s about continuing to build up fitness and Celtic will probably settle for another two or three-goal victory.

Celtic are of course extremely short to win at 1-11 with Ladbrokes while Celtic -1 is just 2-7 at Ladbrokes so consider -2 at 7/9.

Alashkert are 40-1 at Ladbrokes and if anyone fancies a close encounter they are 10/3 at Betfair with+2 goals.

Edouard will be well backed at 5-2 with William Hill to score first but it’s tough to pick between him and strike pal Dembele who is the same price.

The best bet could be to back both to score in singles.

James Forrest was also on target last week and looked dangerous – he is 9-2 to break the deadlock and 21-20 to net.
