Visiting The Netherlands

Arne Slot turned down the chance to manage Tottenham this season, he now goes up against the club that lost their manager instead.

The Slot Machine

A look at this season’s Champions League draw highlighted that Newcastle have been placed in the Group of Death as the Magpies have been bunched together with Milan, PSG and Borussia Dortmund.

A tough draw for them but when you look at Celtic’s you would have to say that Brendan Rodgers’ men have been placed in the Group of Life Support and with Lazio, Atletico Madrid and Feyenoord serving as the opposition, this European campaign could be rather difficult for the Hoops.

With this trio of opponents, the brief will be to secure some form of European football come the turn of the year. Progress in the Champions League may be too big an ask, but the Europa League could be their safety net.

Which is why it is so important for Celtic to get off to a good start and especially when they travel to De Kuip on Tuesday. The Scottish champions will have identified their Dutch counterparts as the team where points are most going to be up for grabs.

Earn six at the expense of Arne Slot’s men and European football at the start of 2024 is all but concerned – regardless of what happens in the four fixtures against Atletico Madrid and Lazio both home and away.

Get off to the worst possible start and the Scottish giants will know that their chances of additional trips to the continent will be somewhat curtailed. It may be Matchday 1 but this one already feels like a six-pointer.

The Scottish champions visiting the Dutch champions and after a slow start to the season, Feyenoord are now starting to go up through the gears. Back-to-back draws in their opening two games, three successive wins since.

The most recent of those came at the expense of Heerenveen on Saturday. An emphatic 6-1 home win seems to be the perfect warmup for Champions League football, it also fires off a warning shot to Celtic.

With that being said, the kings of Scotland did also manage three points at the weekend. They would eventually get the better of Dundee in front of their own support, even if they did struggle to break down the stubborn promoted outfit.

But now it is time for the first of my two tips, and I am backing the hosts to win by two clear goals. This means I am going to the winning margin market for Feyenoord to get off the mark and this is priced at 15/4.

The Hoops are tipped to have a rough night in the Netherlands

In addition to this, I am going to go for a correct score tip. Feyenoord have scored 17 goals in their last three league matches and with them backed to come out on top, I am also predicting a 3-1 home win for Arne Slot’s men at odds of 11/1.
