A striking match in this Wednesday’s match will be held by Celtic and Barcelona for the group stage of the Champions League.
In my opinion, the painting culé part as a favorite because of the collective potential and offensive that has, which is usually maintained even when acting as a visitor. For this reason and considering that the Scots are irregular in defense, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “Barcelona scores more 1.5 goals”. At stake is ensuring their classification.
Take into account that Celtic only has two points in the group, making a campaign not very encouraging in general lines. He started very badly losing 7-0 against Barcelona at the Nou Camp, then equaling against Manchester City. He then played two games against Borussia Monchengladbach, a rival he could not overcome in any of the matches he played. It is a combative team but irregular in defense.
On the other hand do not forget that the Scots have added 1 point in their first two games as a local in the competition, after equaling 3-3 against Manchester City and losing 0-2 against Borussia Monchengladbach. One detail to consider is the effectiveness and intensity that showed before the English set. His goal will be to fight for a matter of honor and avoid another role as the beating suffered in the duel played in Spain.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Barcelona have 9 units in the group, losing their last appearance against Manchester City in Etihad (3-1). Its objective is to be able to sentence its classification and to assure the first place of the group. It is expected that with the return of Messi, the team can improve what was done against Malaga in the Nou Camp (par 0-0).
Already to finish we tell you that the Catalans won one exit and lost the other. First they surpassed to 1 to Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany soon to fall before the “Citizens” of Guardiola. That visit the team lost by a foolish error in exit after starting the game well and score the first goal of it. He was able to tie him in the second stage, but André Gomes fired a shot on goal.
After all I said I play for the bet “Barcelona scores more 1.5 goals” because of the following reasons: First because Barcelona is a team superior to his rival, being feasible to manage the midfield and forward his lines in a constant manner. Second because the Catalans will want to recover after what happened against Málaga at the Nou Camp. For that reason, the return of Messi is fundamental for the equipment to play well. And third because Celtic, despite being combative in his actions, is still irregular in defensive matter. Faced with this reality and knowing that Gladbach and Manchester City made 2 or more goals to the Scots, we believe that the Catalans can win and score a couple of goals.
