Celtic will look to move closer to the Champions League group stages when they welcome Ferencvarosi TC to Celtic Park on Wednesday night. They come into the match having already thrashed KR Reykjavik 6-0.
The Hungarian champions Ferencvarosi, are also in good form after an unbeaten start to the season. They started their league campaign with a 1-1 draw against MTK, before beating Swedish champions Djurgarden 2-0 at home in their opener.
Ferencvarosi have only ever reached the Champions League group stages on one occasion and Celtic’s superior quality should also see them keep a clean sheet at Celtic Park.
Reason for Celtic vs. Ferencvarosi TC predictions:
- Both teams have scored in the visitors’ last four away trips in the Champions League.
- Celtic saw 11 of their 16 European games last season finish with both teams scoring.
- The hosts have hit three goals or more in their last three home Champions League matches.
For starters, both teams have scored in Ferencvaros’ last four away trips in this competition. They meet a Celtic side who saw both teams score in 11 of 16 European ties last term across the Champions League and Europa League.
Celtic have scored at least three times in their last three home Champions League games.
The Scots are entering this one quite confident with their appearances as they started the new season in a very good way, having two victories and one draw.
In their last 10 Champions League matches, Celtic have scored 24 goals and they will fancy their chances of chalking up another big scoreline in Glasgow this week. They have only lost three of their last 24 matches at home, while they kept a clean sheet in half of those encounters.
The Hungarians also fell quite confident before this upcoming clash, as they were able to eliminate Djurgarden from Sweden in the last qualification match for the Champions League.
Ferencvarosi looked far better and sharper with the ball to their feet, especially in the first part, and with two goals scored over Nguen, they managed to cross their first obstacle to their final goal.
As mentioned, Celtic is really looking quite good, especially in the offense, and in my opinion, they will have no problems in scoring in this encounter.
Both teams to score is our pick, while we back the Bhoys to carry on scoring, with a 3-1 win our correct score prediction.
