Celtic – Helsingborgs 29.08.2012
First leg ended 2-0 for scottish side but reality is Helsingborgs missed a string of great chances
but seems like the departure of striker Finnbogasen was a bigger loss then they have expected.Still, Norway top-scorer Djurdjic came to replace him and played decent in first game.Celtic looked like more mature team, since they have managed to convert chances they had but still they have looked shaky at the back, even HJK managed to score at their place in previous round.FRanfkly, i expect those chances missed by swedes in first leg to be avenged here, so yea visitors can score here , maybe more than once.
Match: Celtic – Helsingborgs 20.45h
League: Champions League
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.85
Celtic is topping the scottish league, they receorded an comprehensive win against Inverness last round 4-2 and they even rested cpt. Brown, attacker Samaras and midfielder Commons.Everything works good for Celtic and they always made good home game in euro cups.Since Helsingborgs defense looks even shakier than the one of Celtic we can expect locals to score 2 goals here.Helsingborgs is losing the momentum a bit since they are winless also in the league for 2 rounds, but they had a tough schedule with trips to Elfsborg 1-2 and Djurgarden 1-3.Attacker Djurdjic scored his first goal for Helsingborgs in last round game.Baiscally, first game should have gone over this line considering the amount of chances missed.Both teams are having defensive issues and scoring potential.Helsingborgs doesnt have the pressure on them now so they’ll be more relaxed mentally, this usually suit better for the underdog, that’s why i think they’ll score here.
