Celtic hosts Rosenborg in a match from Group B of the UEFA Europa League
Celtic hosts Rosenborg in a match from Group B of the UEFA Europa League. Let’s have a look at this clash in our winning soccer predictions.
Celtic started the season with hopes of reaching the Champions League, but the Scottish giant was eliminated during the qualifiers by AEK Athens. After this they had to beat Suduva in order to guarantee their place in the group stage of the EL. And they did it, which was important for them after their failure in the Champions League.
In the Scottish Premiership Celtic are surprisingly not leading the standings after the first five rounds. Brendan Rodgers’ team is 2nd in the league standings with 10 points, being on 5 points behind the leader Hearts. So far Celtic have a record of three wins, one draw and one loss. In their last game they made a 0-0 draw during the visit to St. Mirren, losing some important points.
It’s a very curious thing that Celtic and Rosenborg already met this season. This happened in the early phase of the Champions League qualifiers. Celtic eliminated the Norwegian team after a 3-1 win at home and a 0-0 draw in Norway.
After being kicked out from the Champions League by Celtic, Rosenborg managed to win their Europa League qualifiers, finding a place in the group stage of the tournament.
So, we can say that these two teams know themselves pretty well already. Rosenborg would like to avenge their loss in the Champions League qualifiers and now they will have a chance to do it at the Celtic Park in Glasgow.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Europa League clash between Celtic and Rosenborg. We believe that the Scottish team is the favourite here, especially when playing at home. It won’t be easy for Rosenborg.
