Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League

Celtic welcome Borussia Monchengladbach to Parkhead on Wednesday evening, in the third round of matches from the Champions League group stages.

The Scottish Champions come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win against Motherwell at home on Saturday.

Goals from Scott Sinclair (18) and a late Moussa Dembele penalty (87) ensured Celtic took a four-point lead with a game in hand.

They are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions, their only defeat coming in the 7-0 humiliation against Barcelona.

Celtic In Great Form

Celtic had gone into the weekend’s fixtures in excellent form, with a five-game unbeaten streak already established.

They have started the Champions League in mixed form though, with a hefty opening defeat against La Liga Champions Barcelona by 7-0.

They followed that up with a European classic, in a six goal thriller at Parkhead against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Goals from Moussa Dembele (3, 47) and Raheem Sterling (20 og) took Celtic ahead on three occasions, with Fernandinho (11), Raheem Sterling (28) and Nolito (55) rescuing the Blues.

Celtic Underdogs

Despite their excellent form Celtic remain underdogs, despite their excellent home record in the competition in years gone by.

They will be looking to register their first win of the competition, they will also be looking to build on the Manchester City result.

Celtic will look to make history in this fixture, they have never beat Borussia Monchengladbach in a competitive fixture.



German Side Favourites

Borussia Monchengladbach travel to Parkhead on the back of a 0-0 draw against Hamburg at the weekend.

It’s a result that sees Gladbach remain ninth in the Bundesliga, 6 points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

They have drawn one and lost two of their last three matches, with hefty defeats against Schalke and Barcelona prior to that draw.

With three wins from their opening seven matches, they have plenty of work to do in the league.

Big Game For Gladbach

The Germans currently sit bottom of their group, with two defeats against Barcelona and Manchester City.

They have registered no points from their opening 2 matches, with this match against Celtic crucial if they are to put any pressure on the leaders Barca and City.

On matchday two the Germans took the lead in the 34th through Thorgan Hazard, with the perfect start against the Spaniards.

Two goals in eight minutes from Arda Turan (65) and Gerard Pique (73) completed an excellent comeback for the Catalans.

Germans Favourites

Despite their dismal record in Europe this season they remain favourites, they will be looking to register their first win in the Champions League this season.

This will be a tough fixture for the visitors, not as tough as the previous two matches but Parkhead has been the footfall of many sides including Manchester City.

The German side will be looking for their biggest win of the season, on form alone this is an even contest, with both sides struggling against the might of City and Barcelona.


Both teams are 4/9 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Celtic are Leigh Griffiths and Moussa Dembele at 5/1, with Nadir Ciftci at 7/1. For Gladbach, Raffael Caetano is at 5/1 with Thorgan Hazard at 11/2.

The last time these two sides met Borussia Monchengladbach won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 15/2.
