Celtic take centre stage on Wednesday as they try to finish off Rosenborg and reach the third qualifying round of the Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers’ men take a 3-1 lead to Norway – an advantage that could have been more after recovering from the shock of losing an early goal – and I’m backing them to finish off the job in style.

The Bhoys blew the Norwegians away with Odsonne Edouard again the star of the show with a well-taken double.

Last season Celtic won 1-0 in Trondheim after a 0-0 draw at home so they’ve improved – although conceding an away goal wasn’t on the menu.

However, the Hoops should make chances on the break and I’m backing them to win at 29/20 (William Hill). To qualify they are no bigger than 1/14 at Marathon.

Edouard will again be the attacking focus in the absence of Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths and the French star is 13/10 with William Hill to net and 4/1 to break the deadlock. To claim another double Edouard is 13/2 with William Hill.

I’ll happily have an interest in the French hot-shot striking again at odds-against quotes. Alternative scorers are James Forrest at 29/10 while Callum McGregor is 7/2.

Rosenborg will have to push forward and with Rodgers still short of defenders both to score looks on at 8/11 with William Hill and I also fancy Celtic and Both Teams To Score as an outside wager at 7/2 with Bet365.

Best Bets

Rosenborg v Celtic – Celtic to win (29/20 William Hill)

Rosenborg v Celtic – Odsonne Edouard to score at anytime (13/10 William Hill)
