FC Copenhgaen – Celtic
Celtic won a group alongside Lazio which they defeated both home and away from home with 2-1 in the end, they won at home with Rennes and drew in France while won and lost 2-0 with CFR Cluj, won at home and lost away from home but that loss came while they were sure of 1st place in the group and it was really their only loss in an excellent performance in the group stage. In the Champions League they were defeated by CFR Cluj, but the Romanians showed how good they are making it out of the same group stage ahead of Lazio and Rennes.
This while FC Copenhagen finished 2nd a group with Dynamo Kyiv, Lugano and Malmo. Malmo won the group with Dynamo needing a win in their last group game with Lugano to be sure of at least 2nd place, but were 1-0 behind till added time and only scored the 1-1 goal, while Malmo won away from home at Copenhagen to finish 1st the group. And Copenhagen is not even top of the league table in Denmark this season, Mitjylland are league leaders there while they had the winter break, not that impressive results there and played just one league game since than losing a few days ago with 1-0 away at Esbjerg.
While Celtic is winning game after game in Scotland where they are 7 points above Rangers, they treat this competition very seriously like their group stage performances show, will come out not looking for a draw with goals but to win this game even by more than one goal difference and secure an easy return leg at home. Confidence is high in the Celtic camp with more than 6 wins in a row at this moment scoring goals with ease, I mean watched their last game with Aberdeen and the central defender scored the winning goal in the 80 minute not with the header but with an excellent shot, and believe it or not I see Celtic one class above their opponents here and will take away win.
