Our tipster thinks that the Hoops may again struggle in European competition when Ralf Rangnick's charges travel to Glasgow on Thursday night

Celtic will hope that their impressive domestic form transfers to the European stage when RB Leipzig visit Glasgow on Thursday night.

The Hoops have hit 23 goals in their last five matches against Scottish opposition but limped to a 2-0 defeat against this opposition in Germany last month.

Latest odds

Celtic are chalked up as a 3/1 (4.0) chance with bet365 to pick up their second win in Group B when Ralf Rangnick's side provide the opposition, while the same firm go 13/5 (3.60) that both sides settle for a share of the spoils.

Leipzig will feel confident of victory having cruised past Celtic in the previous meeting between the teams and the Bundesliga outfit are available at 17/20 (1.85) to take all three points.

Team news

Eboue Kouassi is expected to miss the remainder of the campaign, while Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths are also sidelined for the Hoops.

The visitors have no fresh concerns ahead of their clash with the Scottish champions.

Happy Hoops?

With Celtic in scintillating form in front of goal, punters may be tempted by the 2/1 (3.0) quote from bet365 for Brendan Rodgers' men to score more than one goal in this game, while the same firm go 4/6 (1.67) that there are goals at both ends.

The same firm go 13/2 (7.50) that Celtic win to nil against Leipzig - the Hoops have conceded in just one of their last 11 victories in all competitions.

Prediction

Celtic, though, have struggled to replicate their domestic dominance in European competition and Leipzig could be well placed to deal yet another blow to the Scottish champions.

The 17/20 (1.85) quote, therefore, for Rangnick's men to win Thursday's tie could represent real value for punters.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
