FK Sarajevo vs Celtic FC
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Stadion Bilino Polje, Zenica.
Clash between FK Sarajevo and Celtic FC this Thursday in Zenica is going to be one hell of a contest in our opinion.
The Bosnian champions are looking completely different under the leadership of Vinko Marinovic and big majority of their games usually end with three, four or even five goals. They became one aggressive squad always looking for one goal more, which was not the case in previous European appearances.
Team from Sarajevo will also be heavily motivated – not a single team from this country ever reached group stages of Europa League.
Only one match is played and everything is possible, even though Celtic are huge favorites at 1.33 odds.
Sarajevo vs Celtic Head-to-head
These two teams have met relatively recently. Those two matches were in 2019 in UEFA Champions League qualifiers. Celtic FC were victorious in both occasions, beating Sarajevo 3-1 and 2-1.
Sarajevo vs Celtic Prediction
Sarajevo’s UEFA Champions League journey started really well. They were much better opponent than Connah’s Quay, beating them on the road 2-0 thanks to the goals scored by Benjamin Tatar (key player for this team).
However, the second appearance was fatal against Dinamo Brest. Bosnians were the ones dominating the pitch and creating chances, but still lost that match in Belarus 1-2 FT.
That loss pushed them into Europa League where they defeated Buducnost Podgorica at home 2-1 FT last week.
Celtic FC are once again battling for the top in Premiership against Rangers, but there have been a couple of slip-ups this season already.
Fans were disappointed after the UCL qualifiers loss to Ferencvaros at home, as they were hoping to get back into the group stages. Last week’s match against Riga FC was much harder than expected – the Bhoys eventually broke the home defense and won the match 1-0. The only goal was scored by Mohamed Elyounoussi in the stoppage time!
Sarajevo FK are playing good lately, but we don’t think they stand a chance against Scottish giants. Besides away win, we will also back Celtic to keep a clean sheet. Their back line was flawless during the weekend in 3-0 victory against Hibernian.
