Celtic were worthy winners when beating Ferencvaros in Glasgow but the reverse Europa League Group G fixture may prove a much tougher test.
The Hungarian outfit have enjoyed some good results on home turf in Europe this term and will adopt a more positive approach at Groupama Arena.
We reckon 21/10 for Peter Stoger’s side to come out on top is tempting enough to be our first Ferencvaros vs Celtic prediction.
A Look At Ferencvaros’ Betting Odds
Ferencvaros are languishing at the foot of the table in this pool, picking up zero points so far.
However, they led early on when going down 2-1 away to Bayer Leverkusen and were competitive for a long time before losing 3-1 to Real Betis here.
The Green Eagles earlier made it through three Champions League qualifiers, beating Prishtina, Zalgiris and Slavia Prague by a combined total of 7-0 at this venue.
A couple of 3-2 defeats by Young Boys ended their quest in that competition, but Ferencvaros showed plenty of ambition in both fixtures.
The hosts are going well in Hungary’s top flight this season and have the ability to cause Celtic problems, as long as they are still up for this tournament.
Looking at the 9/2 for a home win and both teams to score.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic deserved to prevail in Glasgow, when Kyogo Furuhashi broke the deadlock on 57 minutes and Callum McGregor missed a penalty before Balint Vecsei’s late own goal.
However, Ange Postecoglou’s overall record in charge of the Hoops is far from convincing.
There was no disgrace in a 4-3 loss to Betis in Spain, but going down 4-0 at home to Bayer Leverkusen had alarm bells ringing.
Things had looked to be improving on the domestic front during a four-match winning run in the Scottish Premiership.
Saturday’s goalless stalemate versus Livingston at Parkhead was another disappointing effort, though, with defender Carl Starfelt suffering a hamstring injury.
Postecoglou said: “I’m sure the fans were just as frustrated as we were. Especially here at home, we want to be a team that is picking up maximum points.
“We knew the challenge was Livingston sitting deep and we would have to find a way through.
“Getting a goal would have made a big difference in the context of the game but we had chances and couldn’t take them.”
This should be a more open contest but Celtic do look fragile at the back in such games, keeping just one clean sheet in 10 road trips this term.
Let’s add 31/10 for both teams to score in the first half to our Ferencvaros vs Celtic betting tips.
