Celtic vs AEK Athens Prediction Today
Celtic is seen as a favorite this evening, according to the odds offered by bookmakers, being a better and more experienced team, its main advantage being its own field, where it squeezes very rarely, supporters often play an important role.“The Celts” have begun their European adventure in the current season since the first round of the Champions League preliminaries, cheering with Alashkert, which they defeated 3-0 in both the tournament and the return, followed by doubles with Rosenborg , in which they were 3-1 in general.
It should also be mentioned that Brendan Rodgers’ band also started the championship matches, in the first stage, with a slight victory in front of the newly-promoted Livingston, winning 3-1 on their own.
The hosts will not be able to count Dembele in this fight, the Celtic star being unavailable due to an injury.
Captain Scott Brown trusts that the band may be imposed, relying on the advantage of his own land: “The Champions League are always special, whether we are talking about the preliminaries or the group stage. We want to turn Celtic Park into a fortress, as we have done in recent years. “
On the other hand, AEK Athens is seen as an outsider tonight, as expected, and will meet a better but more experienced opponent, being also disadvantaged by the fact that it will evolve on a field trip which hosts rarely climb.
The Greeks are looking to return to the most important intra-club competitions in Europe after a 12-year break, the last time they played in 2006 when they finished third in a group with AC Milan, Lille and Anderlecht. Since then, the “yellow-blue” have just played in the UEFA Europa League, five times.
Unlike his opponent, the Greek champion will begin his Champions League adventure in the third round, and it should also be mentioned that he has not played a match in the championship so far, so tonight will be the first official match, which what could weigh a lot in the equation of qualification.
Football Prediction of the Day Celtic vs AEK Athens
Celtic is the better team, undoubtedly, both in terms of value and experience.
That’s right, AEK Athens does not have a bad lot, being able to produce surprises, but considering that it has no matches this season, it seems hard to believe.
So, after that, I count on the fact that Celtic will be imposed, also relying on the fact that it benefits from the land advantage.
