In parallel with the CL qualifiers, Europe’s big leagues come to the fore, and as usual it is important to discuss whether the team is playing its first race match or not. Celtic climbed into the first round of the CL qualification, which means they have already waived four meetings. The Scottish league also kicked off this weekend, where Celtic went victoriously in the premiere after a comfortable victory against Livingston. 3-1 ended that fight.
Celtic has won four out of five fighters so far in the season, at home they have won three out of three. And we think that’s a heavy factor for Wednesday’s fight – having five racing matches in the luggage. The Scottish big club also has a lot of experience from these contexts. European games belong to the everyday life of a club like Celtic – and here at home you should have good chances of defeating the Greeks.
AEK Athens won the surprise of the Greek league last year. It’s always a big excuse when Olympiakos or PAOK does not win, and now AEK Athene gets the chance to qualify for the absolute finals, Champions League.
However, the Greek league has not yet begun, and it will take a few weeks to complete. At the same time, AEK Athens enters the third round of the CL qualifier, meaning that they have not yet played a competition match 18/19 season. And all of us who followed the football for a long time are well aware that it takes some time to get the matchtempot. Exercise matches do not even contribute as much, and we think that we can cost AEK Athens a place in the final round of this qualification.
AEK Athens impressed greatly with its stable defense game last year. We witnessed that in both the domestic league but also in the Europa League game. Therefore, we assume that the team is playing very defensively on Wednesday. It is clearly their biggest chance to bring a good result to the return meeting in Greece next week.
By automation, Celtic is most likely to have the majority of the ball possession. They will press, but because AEK Athens is relatively safe to defend itself, it does not get to be a simple task for Celtic. But eventually, we are convinced that Celtic gets a hole in the Greeks.
There is nevertheless a lack of matchtempo in the away camp, and in addition to that, they learn to look a little out of their way. And therefore there is undeniably room for mistakes. Celtic has also been noted for 12 goals in the 5 opening matches. There is a flow in the offensive in the home league, and we think it will be absolutely crucial for the outcome of this fight.
We therefore choose to call the straight one to the approved 1.76 x bet.
