Jablonec to win or draw

While most bookies have Celtic as their favourite, we think the visitors are having a rough patch and will struggle in this game. Celtic’s defensive problems have been exposed in the last four games, conceding a total of 11 goals in the last four games. They lost their first game in the Scottish Premiership and new coach Ange Postecoglou is a worried man after losing two of his three first games in charge. The hosts have not lost at home in the last nine games and given that they meet Celtic for the first time and in an important game like this, a home win or draw looks plausible.

Few goals expected

As Celtic struggles to get things right under the new head coach, Ange Postecoglou, things haven’t been easy. Celtic is a great outfit but losing three games in a row after taking over the club makes victory looks far-fetched against Jablonec, a team that has had a relatively good run of 2w, 1D and 1L in the last four games. Celtic will fight for a result here but the fact that Jablonec has leaked only four goals in four games compared to 11 goals leaked by Celtic proves our bargain for a low scoreline.

Jablonec to open the scoring

Jablonec is our favourite to score first in this game. Even though Celtic has scored in their last four matches, the visiting team are weak defensively compared to Jablonec. Home advantage should further motivate Jablonec to exploit Celtic’s weak defence.

Game Preview: Will Celtic Overcome Recent Struggles in Europa Qualifiers?

The first meeting between Jablonec and Celtic will see either side go to the next round of Europa League qualifiers. Our game preview sheds more teams.

Jablonec

Jablonec hasn’t had a great start in the Czech Republic’s Liga 1. The hosts currently sit 9th after two games of 1W and 1L. On the positive side, the hosts have shown a lot of improvement at the back, which is a major boost for head coach, Petr Rada. Petr Radar has been at the helm since January 2018 and averages a commendable 1.73 points in 140 games.

Celtic

Celtic finished second last season, qualifying for the Championship round. However, things did not work  out for Celtic in Champions League qualifications matches where they lost on the road to Midtjylland in the second leg of UCL round two qualifiers despite getting 1-1 draw in the first leg. With that, the Scottish side will now attempt to qualify for Europa League under a new manager who has been less than impressive after three games in charge.
