Celtic vs Fenerbahce Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second round in Group A of the UEFA Europa League, Celtic host Fenerbahce.
Celtic took an important point in the first round away against Ajax 2-2 and they are looking for three points against Fenerbahce. Home team play very good at Celtic Park, but Scottish league is not at the high level, so this could be the real test for Celtic. Without any doubt they will have great support and could make a good result, but main problem for them could be their defence due to injury of their two important defenders.
Fenerbahce lost in the first round against Molde 1-3 at home and it was on of the surprise in the first round, so they have to start playing better in order to stay in the race for the place which leads in the next round. Four days ago they lost the derby match against 3-2, so it’s questionable are they prepared well for this game. Visitors have very good team, they brought few very good players, but their results are not as everyone expect. Turkish side played very good in the European competitions for years, but it looks that they are not in the great form in this moment.
