Alashkert – Celtic : Preview & Prediction
While we are in the midst of the World Cup, the 2018-2019 Champions League is already starting on European turf. Before the long-awaited group stage that will start in September, the first qualifying rounds are already on the program, with one of the legendary clubs of the continent: Celtic Glasgow. Scottish champion last year, the group led by Brendan Rodgers will try to start his best exercise in the best, with a target for qualifying for the second round of qualifying. Opposed to Armenians Alashkert – defending champion of the East – the Bhoys should not be missed, especially when we know the character “tricky” this kind of meeting early in the season. So, surprise to expect on the Yerevan lawn?
In all competitions, Alashkert has not lost any of his last 7 games (4 draws and 3 wins).
At home, Varuzhan Sukiasyan’s men have scored 5 times in their last 3 games.
Manasyan (9 goals last year) and Nenadovic (8 goals) are formidable strikers Armenian side.
Still at the World Cup at the time of writing, Boyata (Belgium) and Lustig (Sweden) will not be on the Celtic side. That is 50% of the usual incumbent defense.
All tournaments combined, Celtic has conceded at least one goal on 7 of its last 10 games. To win 6.
If Celtic have all the cards in their hands to make the difference in this first leg, it would not be surprising to see the Armenians score at least once on their turf. The usual defense of the Scots will not be present, and opposite the offensive talent is there. The odds are beautiful, so we turn to the proposal “The two teams mark”.
