Our match prediction:
Thanks to Moussa Dembele goal in the dying minutes of the match Celtic eliminated Astana in the Champions League third qualifying round. The Hoops have been playing below expectations in the Champions League qualifiers, but they are considered favourites in the upcoming two-legged tie against Hapoel. Celtic hammered Motherwell 7-0 in their first home game of the new Scottish Premier League campaign and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Wednesday’s football match. Hapoel, on the other hand, proved their worth in the two-legged tie against star-studded Olympiakos and seeing that they managed to keep a clean sheet in each of the two meetings with the Greek outfit, we predict that the visitors are going to rely on their rock-solid defence in the Celtic Park clash. Taking everything into account, a low-scoring affair appears on the cards. Celtic and Hapoel have never met before in European competitions.
Highligted Player (Scott Sinclair):
At the age of nine, Scott Sinclair joined Bristol Rovers youth school and seven years later he signed a deal with Chelsea. However, the winger played no more than five league games for Chelsea as he spent a big part of his career on loan at Plymouth, QPR, Charlton, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic, WBA and Aston Villa. He played for Swansea City between 2010 and 2012, scoring 28 goals in 82 league appearances for the Welsh outfit. On 19 May, 2015 Sinclair signed a permanent deal with Aston Villa, but he failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. He scored only two goals in 21 league appearances for the team and the Villans eventually dropped to the Championship. The Aston Villa winger, who is capable of playing on both sides of the field, has 7 caps for England U21 and it has to be noted that he made 4 appearances for Great Britain, scoring one goal for Team GB. Scott Sinclair was born in Bath, England on 25 March, 1989.
