Celtic vs Alashkert Prediction & Betting tips
After having won 0-3 the first leg played in Armenian territory, the tie is practically sentenced in favor of the Scots. However, there is a match to be played and this will be in local condition. Faced with this scenario and knowing that the visit is quite limited in many aspects of the game, we believe that the Brendan Rodgers boys will not regulate too much and will look for the arch of their rival with intensity. Your goal is to score a goal in the initial stage to then manage the times and avoid any type of injury. Remember that all the teams in Europe at the moment are immersed in a preseason process, which is always hard to assimilate for some players in particular.
The present of the team is reassuring, as they managed to win the first leg comfortably and obtained a more than interesting advantage to qualify for the next stage of this Champions League. The best thing of all is that he was able to capture good football at times, ratifying this supremacy by having 60% possession of the ball. In addition we can not let go that generated several chances in the field of his rival, scoring in the right moments of the game. What’s more, Celtic’s first goal came on the last play of the first half, one that being honest was fairly even in general terms. Then the next two goals fell at minute 81 ‘and 90’ of the game.
For this match, coach Brendan Rodgers is expected to maintain the 4-3-3 system he used in the first game, one in which he seeks to be offensive but without losing the balance between the lines. Under this football proposal, the laterals leave depending on what the play indicates, trying not to leave spaces when making the transition attack-defense and defense-attack. In the midfield stands out the work of Ntcham, Brown and McGregor, elements that complement each other more than well with the offensive trident formed by Edouard, Forrest and the young Moussa Dembelé (great French promise thanks to his imbalance and speed when he faces the rival goal ). As a trigger to handle the times we find Scott Sinclair, a player with great experience in the English Premier League.
The current Armenian monarch did not measure up against a strong opponent like Celtic and ended up losing in a clear and forceful way (0-3). Yes, the score can be a bit of a liar for the process of play and especially for the minutes in which the goals fell. Suffice it to know that Alashkert was about to match the first half to corroborate this claim (both Scottish converted to minute 2 ‘off that stage). Then the score remained adjusted until the 0-2 fell to 35 ‘of the second half. Already beaten from the soul and from the football, the Armenians received the third goal at 90 ‘of the match. Now his goal will be to make a worthy presentation at Celtic Park and not receive an early goal that could lead to a scandal.
If we try to visualize what will try to capture the visit in this exit, we believe that it will try to populate the midfield through the 4-1-4-1 system that he used in the first leg played in his stadium. Being sincere in attack, there is little that he can do, since most of his players do not stand out for being skilled with the ball. The only way they could scare the Scots with a goal is by stopping the ball (corner, free kick or near the area side). From there, in more, it is unlikely that Alashkert can make a stubborn play.
The meeting held last Wednesday was the first that played Scottish and Armenian officially.
