Celtic v Salzburg Europa League Preview, 13th December 8.00pm

Celtic have played their way into a great position in Group B. All they need out of Thursday night’s home game is a draw and that puts them through to the next round. Salzburg have already won the group so Celtic will be facing a side who may not be totally at full strength. Read our Celtic v Salzburg betting tips for more.

Celtic News and Form

As long as Celtic avoid defeat on home soil in this one then they will be in the next round of the competition. If Leipzig don’t beat Rosenborg in the other game, Celtic will be through regardless. So they are in a pretty good position. They have banked one-goal margin wins over Rosenberg and Leipzig in the group so far in their home games. All three of their group stage wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. This is Celtic’s fifth season in the Europa League group stage. They have failed to make it out of the group in three of those four previous attempts.

Celtic are on a seven-match unbeaten streak at home in Europe (W6 D1) so have some great momentum behind them. They were on a ten-match winless run in European group stage fixtures (D2 L8) before beating Rosenborg 1-0 on match day one. So the tides of form have certainly changed. Celtic have won their last nine home games in all competitions as well. They are W12 D1 at home in all competitions this term. Celtic are W2 D3 L6 in their previous eleven games against Austrian sides. From their five previous home games against Austrian opponents, Celtic are W2 D1 L2.

Celtic v Salzburg Head to Head

Salzburg won 3-1 on home soil earlier in the group against Celtic
Salzburg are W2 D1 in both previous games against Celtic
Both wins for Salzburg over Celtic were 3-1 score lines
All three meetings have gone over 2.5 goals

Salzburg News and Form

Salzburg have earned five wins from five in the group so far and are, for the third time, looking to complete a Europa League group stage campaign with six wins from six. No side has ever managed to do that on more than one occasion. What could work in Celtic’s favour here is that Salzburg have already won the group so don’t have to turn up at full strength and be all committed here. Salzburg are the reigning Austrian champions and they were in the Champions League qualifiers but dropped out in the third qualifying round

Salzburg reached the semi-finals of last season’s Europa League, their best ever run in a UEFA competitions. In their four away games in Europe, this season Salzburg are W3 D1. In their two away games in the group, they have scored eight goals so certainly are not a goal-shy side at all. They were 19 European games without defeat before losing an away leg against Lazio in last season’s quarter-finals so have an incredibly good European pedigree behind them without question. Salzburg are W2 D1 L0 in three previous games against Scottish opposition and all three of those games were against Celtic.

Celtic v Salzburg Tips & Odds

Both teams to score 4/6
Celtic to win by a one-goal margin at 3/1

Who will win – Celtic v Salzburg Predictions

Because Salzburg aren’t likely to have too much interest in this trip to Glasgow the natural assumption is going to be that Celtic will have enough to get the win they need. This is a good opportunity for the Scottish Champions to finish the group strongly. Home win by a one-goal margin.
