UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 20 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET

Celtic slipped up on Friday evening when they could not find the way to break the deadlock against the struggling St. Mirren side in the first game of the fifth round in Premiership.

The Bhoys will thus come into the Europa League group stage opener lower on confidence. Will it affect their display against Norwegian champions Rosenborg? The visitors are certainly the form favourite after winning seven on the spin across competitions. They bagged three goals past Valerenga on Sunday evening when new striker Issam Jebali notched a 95th-minute winner. It was his third goal in fourth appearance for Troillongan and he’ll certainly be the one to look after here.

Celtic vs Rosenborg: Head-to-head

The two teams will meet each other for the seventh time in history.

They played each other this summer in the UCL second qualifying round when Celtic advanced 3-1 on aggregate.

The Bhoys were more successful in the qualifications for the most elite continental competition last year as well (1-0 on aggregate).

Overall, Celtic won 3, drew 2 and lost 1 of 6 matches against Rosenborg (at home 2 wins and 1 draw in 3 outings).

Celtic vs Rosenborg: Prediction

Brendan Rodgers has troubles with his attacking line as Celtic look to be struggling to create up front without Moussa Dembele. Odsonne Edouard opened the season in a decent fashion, but he failed to deliver in any of last four appearances for the Bhoys.

Given that Rosenborg enter the match in much higher spirit, it’s really hard to recognize the value of the 1.44 odds offered for the home win here. Instead, we’ll push for the Norwegian Eliteserien leaders mot to lose by two or more goals difference as the main betting option at the odds of 1.57.

You can also back the visitors to score a goal at the 1.66 odds.

Celtic vs Rosenborg: Bet Tips

• Rosenborg +1.5 handicap @ 1.57 1.57)

• Celtic to keep a clean sheet – NO @ 1.66 (4/6).
