It was back to winning ways for Celtic after they downed Kilmarnock 3-1 to take their tally to 26 wins from 29 matches since the October international break.
They’ll still be frustrated at letting their Danish opponents equalise during the second leg a week ago, but back at Celtic Park they should remain confident.
After winning five of their final six outings before the winter break, Copenhagen have been struggling to hit the ground running on their return.
Indeed, a defeat at second-from-bottom Esbjerg in the Danish Superliga was a slight concern, while stalemates with Celtic themselves and at basement dwellers Silkeborg domestically doesn’t bode well for their chances.
In fact, that means they’ve now won just three of their 13 road trips since late August, as they could only muster up a total of 10 goals across those games, with nine of them featuring a maximum of two strikes.
In Europe it hasn’t been much better as they’ve now gone W2-D5-L3 on their travels since the start of 2017/18, with eight of those seeing fewer than three goals.
They do tend to keep their games low-scoring and with that they generally tend to be tight encounters, as each of those European fixtures saw a maximum of one goal separate the sides.
Celtic -1 Handicap Draw
The Scottish outfit have been fairly relentless in their pursuit of glory in the Europa League, having won four of their six group matches, including all three at Celtic Park against a Rennes side that are third in Ligue 1, second in Serie A Lazio and CFR Cluj.
They’ve now won 17 of their 18 fixtures across all tournaments at this stadium since late August and we’d be very surprised if Neil Lennon’s charges don’t make it into the Last 16 of this competition.
In fact, if we go back to their results in this tournament since 2017/18 at home, we can see that they tend to keep things fairly tight as all three of their victories over this period prior to the current campaign came by one-goal margins, two of which finished 1-0.
Under 2.5 Goals
Celtic have in fact been incredibly hard to break down over the years at this stadium in Europe. Indeed, excluding a 5-0 defeat against PSG and a high-scoring stalemate with Man City, seven of their 12 outings dating back to 2016/17 have seen two goals or fewer and at odds-against that looks a huge price for this one.
