Midtjylland vs Celtic Prediction: Champions League Match on 28.07.2021
The race to reach the Champions League group stages intensifies this week, as clubs play the second legs of their second qualifying round fixtures. One club with an awful lot to do to reach the next round will be Celtic, as they travel to Danish side Midtjylland.
Champions League Second Qualifying Round Preview
It is a big week or so for Celtic, as they begin their SPL campaign this coming Saturday. However, the immediate focus for Ange Postecoglu will be on their upcoming second leg in the second qualifying round of the Champions League. The Celtic board will demand Champions League football this season after falling in the qualifiers last season and being forced to play Europa League football. However, their chances of reaching the group stages of the elite competition are already in doubt, as they were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Celtic Park last weekend. Pre-season has hardly run smoothly for Celtic, as they are yet to win, and recently lost 6-2 at home to West Ham United.
In the first leg of the tie, Celtic went ahead in the first half through Liel Abada. However, the sending off of Nir Britton on the stroke of half time changed the complexity of the game. Anders Dreyer was sent off ten minutes into the second half for the visitors, but they were still able to get their equalising goal, as Evander struck ten minutes later. The goal was the away strike that the Danish side would have been looking for. However, there is still a job for them to do back at home against the former SPL champions.
Midtjylland vs Celtic Head to Head
Midtjylland and Celtic have met on just one previous occasion. That meeting came last week, as the clubs played out a 1-1 draw in Scotland. The side that wins the second meeting between the sides will progress through to the third qualifying round of the Champions League this season.
Midtjylland vs Celtic Prediction
This is a tough second leg to call. Celtic’s form has been disappointing since the arrival of their new manager, and pressure will immediately be on the former Australia coach if his side taste defeat in this fixture. However, with home support, we expect the Danish side to reach the next round of the competition with a narrow win in the second leg.
