Celtic vs Lille Prediction

One of the worst performances by Celtic in any European competition will come to an end with the upcoming match on Thursday in their EL schedule.

The host has no use of their ground advantage with this poor overall form in the campaign this season.

Lille has been unbeaten in the EL schedule so far this term, which is why backing the away team for a win seems like a better choice in the game.

Despite having a better history in European competitions, the Scottish side is in a tough spot at the moment to earn all three points.

The double chance favoring Lille will probably be the best bet in case the match wounds to be another draw like their reverse fixture in the group stage this season.

Expect a low-scoring affair as both teams will decide to play more defensively. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will come in handy for the punters.

Celtic vs Lille Betting tips

  • Under 3.5 goals @ 1.50 (1/2).
  • Double chance: Draw or Lille @ 1.40 (2/5).
