Celtic - Norwich City Betting Preview: On-song Canaries can stun the Hoops on Tuesday

Both sides tasted defeat at the weekend and Scottish football expert Willie Duncan believes that Chris Hughton's men can bounce back here and stun Neil Lennon's Hoops in Glasgow
Neil Lennon’s Celtic found themselves on the wrong end of a hammering at the weekend as the Hoops crashed to a 4-0 defeat against Frank de Boer’s Ajax side on Saturday night.

Lennon will be hoping for better things for his side when they welcome Chris Hughton’s Norwich City to Celtic Park on Tuesday night.

The Canaries also tasted defeat at the weekend as they slipped to a 3-2 loss away to Hertha Berlin and Hughton will travel to Glasgow looking for his first victory since replacing Paul Lambert in the Carrow Road hot seat.

The clubs last met back in May in Adam Drury’s testimonial match with City running out as 2-0 winners and they can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) with Bet365 to repeat that feat with victory over Celtic on Tuesday.

Despite the heavy defeat in Amsterdam, Neil Lennon’s men are chalked up at 6/5 (2.20) favourites for victory with Bet365 while the same firm offer 12/5 (3.40) that the match ends all square.

The Hoops will be eager to impress their fans in what is their first home match of the pre-season preparations thus far and they can be backed at 9/1 (10.0) with Bet365 to win 1-0 while a 2-1 win for Celtic over their English Premier League opponents can be supported at 8/1 (9.0) with the same firm.

Chris Hughton’s men are available at a chunky 16/1 (17.0) with Bet365 to secure a repeat of the 2-0 victory that they earned over Celtic back in May while Hughton’s new charges are chalked up at 10/1 (11.0) to edge out their hosts by two goals to one.

Celtic have stuttered in pre-season so far and it’ll be another tough assignment against the Canaries and, with that in mind, the 11/10 (2.10) for Chris Hughton’s side in the draw/no bet market looks to represent outstanding value and should be snapped up here.
