Tip Celtic - FC Copenhagen
After a thrilling first leg ended 1-1, Copenhagen travel to Celtic for the second leg of their Round of 32 tie in the Europa League. Celtic continued to show why they are one of the most exciting teams in this competition during that game in Denmark. They followed up their group stage double over Lazio with a performance that saw them create the lion's share of chances. The best chance of the second half, however, fell to Copenhagen and it was squandered. Jens Stage failed to convert from the penalty spot due to gigantic Celtic stopper Fraser Forster tipping his effort on the post. Odsonne Edouard had put Celtic ahead early on with a smart dinked finish, Dame N'Doye levelling up shortly after the break. With an away goal in the bag, Celtic will be confident about finishing off the tie at home. Celtic Park has been the venue for many special occasions in recent years. Lazio and Zenit are among the household names to have been humbled in Glasgow recently, while Danish teams don't fare too well there either.
Celtic are unbeaten in six Glasgow encounters with Danish opposition, keeping a clean sheet in every fixture. Could another goalless scalp be added to the wall? Looking at Copenhagen's goalscoring form, one would think the chances of a scalping being high. The Danish champions have failed to score more than once in five of their last six matches in all competitions. In the Europa League, they have failed to score more than once in any of their four away fixtures. Back Celtic to win with a clean sheet.
