Europa League: Fenerbahce vs Celtic

Fenerbahce vs Celtic Betting Tip and Predictions.

In the last round in Group A of the UEFA Europa League, Fenerbahce host Celtic.

Fenerbahce stand at the second position and they are in the good position to qualify in the next round of the UEFA Europa League. In order to reach the knockout phase of this competition, home need one point. They can through even if they lose, but in that case Ajax have to lose or play draw against Molde. However, Turkish side want to win this game and don’t think about any other scenario. Fenerbahce can even reach the first position in this group if they beat Celtic and Ajax take three points against Molde. The first match between these two team was finished without winner. “The Celtic game is one of the most important of the season for us. There’s a chance we could top the group if we beat them.” – said Fenerbahçe midfielder Mehmet Topal. Home team are in the great form, without defeat in their last 12 matches in all competitions.

Celtic stand at the bottom of the table without any chance to change something in the last match, so it’s questionable are they motivated for this game. They are playing away against St Johnstone for the upcoming weekend and I believe that match is more important for them than this one. Scottish side have many problems in defence in this competition. In all 5 matches they conceded on each game at least two goals. They have nothing to lose in this match, so this could be a good chance for some players that didn’t play too much this season to make their appearance in Istanbul.
