Celtic can’t afford any more Europa League slip-ups and will be looking to kick-start their campaign against fellow Group G strugglers Ferencvaros.
The Hoops were upset by the Hungarian outfit in a Champions League qualifier last season but really should have cruised to victory that night.
They had 71 per cent of the possession and 28 attempts on goal but somehow managed to lose out 2-1.
Revenge is on the cards, though, and 29/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game is our first Celtic vs Ferencvaros prediction.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic looked up for this competition when only just going down in a seven-goal thriller away to Real Betis.
Albian Ajeti and Josip Juranovic put the Hoops 2-0 up before the Spanish side turned on the style and Anthony Ralston’s late strike was just a consolation in that 4-3 defeat.
Matchday 2 brought a humbling 4-0 home loss to Bayer Leverkusen, although Ange Postecoglou insisted that scoreline did not reflect the overall play.
“I thought we fell away at the end and there was no need to,” declared the Australian boss. “We were still creating chances and if you get a goal, you are back in the game.
“We had some unbelievable opportunities. We have to take that disappointment and use it as motivation to set things right in the next game.
“We have to win both these games (against Ferencvaros) if we want to stay alive, so it is a good challenge for us.”
Celtic have lacked consistency as they try to adapt to a new regime but do still look good going forward at times.
A Look At Ferencvaros’ Betting Odds
Ferencvaros performed with credit to get through three Champions League qualifiers this term before going down 3-2 to Young Boys at home and away.
Peter Stoger’s side took an early lead when visiting Leverkusen in this competition but were eventually beaten 2-1.
The Green Eagles suffered another setback when losing 3-1 to Betis at Groupama Arena in Budapest and we fear that may just have knocked the stuffing out of them in terms of European ambitions.
Ferencvaros are flying high in Hungary’s top flight and it would be no surprise to see Stoger now prioritise another domestic title triumph.
Let’s finish off our Celtic vs Ferencvaros betting tips by taking 23/2 for a 3-1 home victory.
