Celtic started off their Europa League campaign with a draw in Rennes and will now look to capitalise on that point with a win in their first home fixture against Cluj.
Celtic have started the domestic season in typical all-conquering fashion. But the defeat to Cluj in the Champions League was a wake up call. Now is the time to get some revenge.
CELTIC TO WIN TO NIL
Celtic have already posted some big wins in the Scottish Premiership and will look to a typically passionate home crowd to cheer them on to a convincing victory here to serve as a statement to the rest of the group.
TOTAL GOALS OVER 2.5
The Scottish side will look to take the game to their Romanian opponents straight from the kick off – and it would be no surprise if the home team completely dominate this meeting.
CELTIC/CELTIC – HALF TIME/FULL TIME
Head to Head
These two sides met for the first time earlier in the season in a third qualifying round in the Champions League. After a 1-1 draw in Romania, Cluj surprised Celtic in the second leg by scoring a last minute winner to win 4-3 and take the tie.
Celtic to win at home
This is a perfect test for Neil Lennon’s side to show that they can go far in this season’s Europa League – and make up for previous failures, including the Champions League exit to this Cluj side earlier in the season.
