Scottish giants Celtic Glasgow welcome the reigning European champions Real Madrid for one of the most anticipated fixtures in the group stages of the Champions League.
After a terrific start to the 2022-23 season, Celtic is well primed to face any test that Real Madrid may throw its way. Ange Postecoglu's side has won each of its six matches played so far in the domestic league, as well as defeated Ross County in the Scottish League Cup. This is the first time that Glasgow has made it to the group stages of the Champions League since the 2017-18 season, and will be looking to make the most of the opportunity. While Real Madrid is the favorite on most football betting sites to grab the top spot in the group, the second place will see a 3 way battle between Glasgow, Leipzig, and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Real Madrid lifted the Champions League trophy for a record-extending 14th time in the last season and will be in no mood to relinquish its hold on the coveted silverware. The club has had a perfect start to the season, winning each of its 4 opening matches in La Liga. Carlo Ancelotti has already won one trophy in the current season, beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the Super Cup, and will be hoping to continue his unbeaten run.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Celtic Glasgow vs Real Madrid Champions League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Celtic Park Stadium, Glasgow, on 6th September 2022.
Celtic is likely to start with Georgios Giakoumakis and Moritz Jenz in this game, as Yosuke Ideguchi, Kyogo Furuhashi, and Carl Starfelt miss out due to injuries. Liel Abada and Jota will be leading the attack.
As for the visitors, the only absentees are likely to be Alvaro Odriozola and Jesus Vallejo, both of whom are nursing injuries. Ancelotti is expected to start with 4 defenders in this game.
With both teams in top form, we are expecting an exciting contest. While it is an extremely difficult game to call, we think the visitors might just scrape through.
Bet on Real Madrid to win.
With 25 goals in the domestic season, Celtic has been averaging more than 4 goals per match in the last 6 games. Real Madrid has scored freely too, with each of its last 4 matches seeing an aggregate score of 3 or more. We are therefore expecting a goal fest in Glasgow.
Benzema has already scored 4 goals in the 5 competitive games that he has played this season. He was the top scorer in the last edition of the Champions League with 15 goals and won the Player of the Season award. We are backing him to score at least once in this match.
