Neil Lennon’s men secured a 1-1 draw in the away leg, putting them in a strong position to progress to the final qualification round against Slavia Prague.

Latest odds

Unbeaten in 14 Champions League qualifiers on home turf, they are priced at 4/7 (1.57) with bet365 to clinch progression by coming out on top here.

The Railwaymen have reached the Champions League group stages just twice in their history, but can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to remain on course for a third campaign with a shock win at Celtic Park.

Three of the guests’ last five away games in this competition have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them playing out another stalemate in this one.

Tom Rogic, Eboue Kouassi and Daniel Arzani are all injured for Celtic, while Mikey Johnston will face a late fitness test due to a slight muscle injury.

Veteran midfielder Emmanuel Culio missed the first leg due to injury, and faces a race against time to recover for the trip to Scotland.

Preview

While the Hoops’ home record is commanding, their guests have failed to win any of their three qualifiers on the road so far this campaign.

Not only can the home crowd therefore feel confident of a win, they should be expecting plenty of goalmouth action considering their team’s prolific form so far this campaign.

Predictions

Having scored 25 goals in just seven fixtures this season, odds of 7/4 (2.75) seem generous on Celtic coming out on top in a match featuring at least three goals.

That bet looks particularly attractive considering Cluj are more than capable of contributing as well, having found the net in each of their last nine matches in all competitions.
