Our football match prediction:
Despite suffering three defeats in the group stages of the Europa League, Celtic eventually made it to the last 32 of the competition. The Hoops have big ambitions for both Scottish Premier League and the Europa League and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football game against Valencia. Los Che, on the other hand, recorded four wins in previous five games in the Europa League and seeing that they have been in a fine form in the national championship of late, it is no surprise they are considered favourites to win the tie against Brendan Rodgers’ troops. Valencia are more of a team than Celtic and we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg. In their last meeting in the Europa League los Che eliminated the Hoops in the double-header.
