Celtic will take a comfortable 5-0 lead over Nomme Kalju to Estonia for the second leg of their Champions League qualifier and should enjoy another success.
However, the Hoops may now have one eye on Saturday’s Scottish Premiership opener against St Johnstone, so that could allow their hosts to at least be more competitive.
We’re taking 13/10 for an away win and both teams to score as our initial Nomme Kalju vs Celtic prediction.
A Look At Nomme Kalju’s Betting Odds
Nomme Kalju were totally outclassed in Glasgow, but Neil Lennon has admitted he will now ring the changes for the return fixture.
The manager said: “Five-nil is a great advantage to have, so there is an opportunity to allow the players who are champing at the bit to play.”
Kalju sprang a surprise when knocking out Macedonian champions Shkendija in the previous round and will be keen to bow out of the competition with their pride restored.
Looking at the 13/5 for both teams to score in the first half is a fair price.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic stormed into a 3-0 half-time lead at Parkhead thanks to Leigh Griffiths firing in a brilliant free-kick not long after Kristoffer Ajer’s header and Ryan Christie’s penalty.
The Hoops continued to dominate after the break, with Christie and Callum McGregor goals making the away leg a formality.
“It was a brilliant performance,” said Lennon. “It took a little bit of time to get going, but once we got the goal, then we really upped the tempo. It puts a real marker down.”
This clash will test Celtic’s strength in depth, but £7million summer recruit Christopher Jullien is set to be one of the players coming in.
Let’s finish off our Nomme Kalju vs Celtic betting tips by taking 31/4 for a 2-1 away victory.
CELTIC 5-0 NOMME KALJU – Kristoffer Ajer, Ryan Christie (2), Leigh Griffiths, Callum McGregor
