Prediction published on November 22, 2021 at 8:37 PM - Modified on November 22, 2021 at 8:43 PM
Celtic are on to a tough mission as they head to Germany to take on Bayer Leverkusen in the fifth round of matches in Europa League at the group stages. The two sides are in Group G with Leverkusen on 10 points while Celtic have so far managed six points. Leverkusen have endured a tough run in recent matches, but they head to this game on a better run, unbeaten in three, with two wins. In this group, they have done well; they are lethal in attack and strong in defence, while generally, they have been doing well in the Europa League. In 10 Europa League matches, Leverkusen have seven wins and only two losses. At home, in the same competition, they have only one loss in 14 matches, and have won 10. In the last five home matches in Europa League, Leverkusen have scored in both halves in four.
Celtic hold a nine-match unbeaten streak as they go to this game. This run, they hope, gives them the needed impetus for such a big task. The opponents they’ve faced in those nine matches, however, do not match Leverkusen in strength. The last time they tasted defeat, it was inflicted by Leverkusen, a 4-0 thrashing at home, and that paints the picture on the amount of work on Celtic’s hands. Their only wins in the Europa League this season have been against the weakest team in this group – Ferencvaros. They have just one clean sheet in the last five Europa League matches and in four of them, Celtic have conceded two or more goals. Away from home, in the same competition, Celtic have conceded at least two goals in each of the last seven.

Celtic are underdogs here and by the number of goals they’ve been conceding away in Europa League, we will back Leverkusen to win comfortably.
