Celtic Value To Beat Out-Of-Form Milan
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier tips Celtic as the best value bet in Tuesday’s Champions League matches when AC Milan visit Celtic Park for a crucial Group H fixture.
Celtic have a slim chance of qualifying for the Champions League knock out phase but will have to defeat Milan tonight to have any chance to progress. Neale Lennon’s team are bottom of the group with three points but will climb to second with a victory over Milan if Ajax fail to beat Barcelona in Amsterdam.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “It would be a surprise if Arsenal failed to beat Marseilles at the Emirates but odds of 1/4 for the home win are too short to recommend. Likewise the bookies are asking us to take odds-on Chelsea to win in Basel but the Swiss were victorious at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture and have a good record at home.
The value bet in tonight’s Champions League matches must be Celtic at 2/1 with Ladbrokes. Neale Lennon’s side has enjoyed some memorable Champions League wins at Celtic Park in recent times, having beaten the likes of Barcelona, Spartak Moscow and Ajax in the last two seasons, so the visit of AC Milan should hold no fear. Milan are out of form and plagued with injuries to key players, they have not won in their last seven competitive games and the Hoops must be in with a decent chance of another famous victory.”
Celtic have only lost two of their last 12 Champions League home games, against Barcelona at the beginning of October and Juventus in February, having won nine and drawn one.
The visitors look vulnerable despite being favourite to win the tie. Max Allegri’s side got off to a promising start to their Champions League campaign, qualifying at the expense of PSV before defeating Celtic 2-0 in the opening group game at San Siro. This was followed by draws at Ajax and against Barcelona. However, a narrow 1-0 home win against Udinese is the only their only victory since the beginning of October and the former European giants are languishing in the bottom half of the Serie A table with a third of the season gone.
