Our football match prediction:
Celtic did well to beat Linfield (2-0) at Windsor Park in Belfast and they are now on a quest to put icing on the cake with yet another triumph over the Northern Ireland outfit. Over the years the Hoops have turned their Celtic Park into a real fortress and it is no surprise they are regarded as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s football game against Linfield. Brendan Rodgers is doing a great job with the Scottish champions and we predict that his men are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Wednesday evening. Australia international Tom Rogic found the net in the 2-0 win over Linfield and the 24-year-old midfielder will be one of the men to watch in the home team. The Blues have slim chances of booking their place in the Champions League third qualifying round and we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle in Glasgow.

Internationally experienced defender also took part at Euro 2012 and his vast experience is of crucial importance for Celtic. Lustig began his career at Umea FC and had also played for GIF Sundsvall and Rosenborg BK before his move to Scotland. Mikael Lusting has endured mixed fortunes throughout his four-year career with Celtic, predominantly due to various injury spells that kept him out of play. First choice for Celtic manager(s) whenever he is fully fit, the Swedish defender is praised for his hard work, stamina and physical ability, despite his most recent struggles with muscle injuries.
Highlighted Team (Celtic):
The Celtic Football Club boasts a proud over 100-year long history which has made The Bhoys a global brand thanks to their unprecedented social awareness that dates to the very beginnings of this Scottish club. Celtic was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow by raising money to help their fellow citizens. The charity legacy continues to this day with Celtic still preserving their charitable traditions through the Celtic FC Foundation. The Celts play their home matches at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people. One of the two most successful football clubs in Scotland with 47 Scottish League Championship titles to their name, Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, with the clubs known as the Old Firm. European Cup winners from season 1966-67 and runners-up two years later, Celtic have been regular in European competitions since their first appearance in 1962-63. Their other most standout results have been runners-up in the EUFA Cup in 2003 and Intercontinental Cup in 1967.
