Vinko Marinovich’s team actually fought for the Champions League, where during qualifying they beat Connach Quay (2: 0), but then got a more experienced opponent – Dynamo Brest – and was forced to give up, as they were not ready for this. pressure (1: 2).
After that the team got to the semifinals of qualification, though the Europa League, where they played a great match against Buduchnost Podgorica (2: 1). The fight turned out to be tense, but an early goal in the first minutes was one of the reasons for the hosts’ victory.
Players “Sarajevo” understand that “Celtic” often performed at a level higher than the class of opponent, and in general is leading a team of Scotland, so will need to take risks and go for broke.
The Scottish club was also aiming for the Champions League, especially after the victory over KR Reykavik (6-0), however, as it turned out, the euphoria did not last long. The team from Glasgow lost in the next meeting to Ferencváros, and at home (1: 2).

07/09/19 FC Sarajevo Celtic thirteen
Sarajevo is inferior in all respects to the rival from Scotland, but do not forget that Vinko Marinovic’s club will receive an opponent at home, which is a big plus.
Celtic rarely play defensively as their style of play is geared towards ball control and fast attacks. In our opinion, the hosts will run forward and open the zones, which will be used by the “Celts”, who will not miss such a chance, so we are waiting for goals.
Our prediction – total over 2.5 goals for 1.76 odds in bookmaker Winline
