Celtic vs Midtjylland Predictions


Neither team have done a lot of winning in their latest competitive games, and are beginning life under new managers. With plenty at stake, expect a tight first leg that ends in a draw.

  • Celtic are winless in 4 of their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Celtic are undefeated in 16 of their last 17 home matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


This will be the first meeting between these two sides.

Celtic Form


Celtic finished distant runners-up to rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership last season.

The Hoops endured a season to forget, ending 25 points behind their Old Firm rivals and seeing Neil Lennon leave his post as manager.

They also failed to make it past the second qualifying round of the Champions League last season, losing out at this stage to Ferencvaros.

Ange Postecoglou has replaced Lennon in the hot seat at Celtic Park and has overseen four friendlies.

Celtic beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 and Charlton 2-1 before drawing with Bristol City 0-0. The latest friendly was a 1-0 defeat to Preston.

Celtic Team News


Ange Postecoglou has started an overhaul of the Celtic squad. Veteran midfielder Scott Brown has left and Jack Hendry and Vakoun Issouf Bayo have been sold.

Among the new faces are £3.5 million capture Liel Abada, an Israeli international, and Japanese international Kyogo Furuhashi.

Liam Shaw and Osaze Urhoghide have joined from Sheffield Wednesday and Scunthorpe’s Joey Dawson has also been snapped up.

Midtjylland Form


Like Celtic, Midtjylland failed to defend their domestic title when finishing runners-up in the Danish Superliga last season.

Having played in the Champions League group stages last year, they must now come through qualifying if they are to make it into the full draw.

In the build up to the new season, Midtjylland won 2-1 against Malmo in a friendly before losing 3-2 to Lech Poznan. A 2-1 victory over Sigma Olomouc completed their pre-season matches.

New coach Bo Henriksen had the worst possible start to his reign on Friday as his side lost 2-1 at home to Odense. Midtjylland conceded a 91st minute winner at MCH Arena.

Midtjylland Team News


Defender Dion Cools is available after missing the defeat to Odense through suspension.

Young forward Doguhan Simsir also missed Friday’s defeat, but is unlikely to feature in Glasgow.
