Feyenoord, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 6-1 Eredivisie triumph vs SC Heerenveen.
For Feyenoord, the goals were scored by Luka Ivanušec (12'), Mats Wieffer (16'), Igor Paixão (20'), Santiago Giménez (60'), Yankuba Minteh (66') and Ondřej Lingr (72'). Simon Olsson (25') was the scorer for SC Heerenveen.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Feyenoord have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Feyenoord have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 6 goals during that time. It will be interesting to find out if that trend will be continued on in this game.
Celtic will come into the meeting following a 3-0 Premiership win over Dundee in their last outing.
In that match, Celtic managed 74% possession and 19 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. For Celtic, the goals were scored by David Turnbull (51'), Kyogo Furuhashi (63') and Matt O'Riley (67'). At the other end, Dundee got 4 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.
A run of hard-working performances from the Celtic defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 clashes in total. During the same period, their own attack force has managed to score 11.
Team News: Feyenoord
Ayase Ueda (Foot Injury) and Justin Bijlow (Broken wrist) aren’t available for Feyenoord boss Arne Slot.
In all likelihood, De club aan de Maas could make use of the 4-2-3-1 system and select Timon Wellenreuther, Lutsharel Geertruida, Gernot Trauner, David Hancko, Quilindschy Hartman, Mats Wieffer, Quinten Timber, Yankuba Minteh, Calvin Stengs, Luka Ivanusec and Igor Paixao.
Team News: Celtic
We reckon that The Bhoys will likely make use of a 4-3-3 formation, settling for Joe Hart, Alistair Johnston, Gustaf Lagerbielke, Liam Scales, Greg Taylor, Matthew O'Riley, Callum McGregor, Luis Palma, Reo Hatate, Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda.
It looks to us that Feyenoord will more than likely score more than once when they meet Celtic, who will not find it easy scoring a goal of their own.
We reckon that it will be a controlled 2-0 winning score for Feyenoord when all’s said and done.
