Scottish “Celtic” will play away against the Czech club “Jablonec” in the first match of the Europa League qualification. The match will take place on August 5, beginning at 18:45 Moscow time. Yablonec – Celtic: forecast , rate, odds, statistics.
Yablonec had a great last season. The team from the city of the same name took the third place in the Czech championship, being only behind two Prague grandees – “Slavia” and “Sparta”.
Last year, Yablonec also participated in the Europa League qualification, but not entirely successfully. The Czech club then failed to pass the Slovak DAK.
In the new championship of the Czech Republic , Jablonec started with a home victory over Banik – 1: 0. The next match was not so successful. Petr Radu’s team lost to Mlada Boleslav with a score of 0: 3.
It is also worth noting that in one of the friendly matches, Yablonec confidently beat Dynamo Moscow (2: 0).
Meanwhile Celtic have already managed to disappoint their fans. The Scottish club finished their fight for a spot in the UEFA Champions League group stage last week.
Celtic failed to make it to the top clubs in Europe for the fourth time in a row. And this time the team from Glasgow was stopped by Midtjylland.
The home meeting with the Danish club ended in a 1: 1 draw, while away Celtic lost 1: 2, conceding the decisive goal in overtime.
And oddly enough, Celtic also started with a defeat in the new Scottish Championship. Angelos Postekoglu’s team lost on the road to Harts (1: 2).
Forecast and rate
You can bet on Yablonec in this match for 3.78, the 1xbet app download for android offer a draw for 3.52, and Celtic win for 1.96.
Apparently, the morale of Celtic players leaves much to be desired. The team is incredibly disappointed with the relegation from the Champions League, and only this can explain the weak performance in the recent match against Hearts. By that time, Celtic, it seems, had not had time to recover, primarily psychologically.
In general, it is possible that the impudent Czechs will also inflict a blow on Celtic’s reputation.
The bet is a win for Yablonets or a draw + the total of the match is less than 4.5 for 1.99 . Most likely, the Czechs will retain maximum intrigue before the return game.
