Our tipster thinks that there is plenty of potential for goals - at both ends - when Brendan Rodgers' side meet Marcelino's men in the Europa League

Celtic's Europa League campaign continues against Valencia in Glasgow on Thursday night.

The Scottish champions have started the year in superb fashion, winning seven successive matches without conceding a goal in 2019.

Valencia's visit, though, will represent a stern test, for Marcelino's men are in fine form too. Indeed, the Spanish side have lost just one of their last nine matches and will travel to Scotland in confident mood.

Latest odds

Celtic are chalked up as a 13/5 (3.60) chance with bet365 to establish a first-leg lead and it is worth noting that Valencia have won just won only one of their last nine matches away from home.

Nevertheless, the visitors are available at just 21/20 (2.05) to win on Scottish soil. The draw is priced at 12/5 (3.40) with bet365 ahead of this one.

Team news

Odsonne Edouard, Olivier Ntcham, Craig Gordon and Timothy Weah were amongst the Celtic substitutes at the weekend. All four men are expected to start on Thursday.

Marcelino has a fully-fit squad from which to choose for the trip to Glasgow.

Home advantage pivotal?

Valencia collected just one point and scored just one goal in three Champions League matches on their travels this term - a disappointing record on the road that will unquestionably offer the Hoops hope of picking up a positive result.

Rodgers' men are a 5/1 (6.0) chance with bet365 to win to nil in Glasgow. The same firm offer 3/1 (4.0) that Celtic keep Marcelino's side out.

Goals galore?

Valencia drew a blank at the weekend but have been in otherwise excellent form in front of goal. The La Liga outfit scored 10 goals in their four fixtures prior to Sunday's goalless draw with Real Sociedad.

The even money (2.0) quote from bet365 for more than two goals may well prove popular. The same firm offer 3/4 (1.75) that both teams are on target on Thursday.


Celtic have both scored and conceded in eight of their last 11 home matches in this competition, with nine of those aforementioned matches featuring at least three goals.

As such, bet365's 5/4 (2.25) quote for more than two goals - and both teams to score - could represent real value.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 5/4 (2.25) for a 1pt stake at bet365
