Our football match prediction:
After suffering a heavy 5-0 loss to PSG in their first group game, Celtic will be looking to give fans some cheer when they face Anderlecht at Stade Constant Vanden Stock. The Hoops have been impressive in front of goal in the Scottish Premier League this season, but it remains to be seen if they are capable of recording a good result in the elite competition this term. Brendan Rodgers’ men need to grab something from Wednesday’s football match against Anderlecht if they are to keep their hopes of booking their place in the knockout stages alive, but it is well known that the Belgian champions are tough to beat at home. The Purple & White suffered a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the opening match of their Champions League campaign and they aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the elite competition. Taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the cards.
