class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>After a difficult pre-season, Al Hain-Cole fears Postecoglou could be in for more disappointment in the Champions League clash against the Wolves
There is all to play for when Midtjylland welcome Celtic to the Arena Herning for Wednesday’s Champions League qualifier.
The sides shared a 1-1 draw in the first leg, when Liel Abada’s debut goal was cancelled out by an Evander free kick in a match that produced a red card for each team.
Midtjylland vs Celtic latest odds
Having lost just one of their last five Champions League qualifiers on home turf, Midtjylland are 7/5 (2.40) favourites with bet365 to progress by coming out on top here.
Ange Postecoglou was disappointed with his team’s inability to capitalise on their dominance in the first leg, but Celtic can be backed at 15/8 (2.88) to claim a crucial victory in Denmark.
The hosts’ last European home game resulted in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them playing out another stalemate in this one.

Midtjylland vs Celtic team news
Aral Simsir remains a doubt due to self-isolating with Covid-19, while Anders Dreyer is suspended following his red card in Glasgow.
Nir Bitton is also suspended after his first-half sending off, with Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele both doubtful and Leigh Griffiths definitely absent with a calf injury.
Midtjylland vs Celtic preview
Hardly the most popular appointment due to his lack of experience in European football, Postecoglou has really been thrown into the deep end this summer.
With pre-season preparations disrupted by fixture cancellations due to Covid-19 and key players absent or sold, this crucial Champions League qualifier does not come at a good time for a club desperate for a morale boost.
Having fallen to a rather embarrassing 6-2 friendly defeat against West Ham since the first leg, the Hoops certainly don’t look in good shape coming into this clash.
While Bo Henriksen has also lost some key players this summer, his more settled squad will be in confident spirits after following up the hard-fought first-leg draw with a solid yet unspectacular 1-0 league win away to Aalborg at the weekend.
Midtjylland vs Celtic tips & predictions
All in all, odds of 4/5 (1.80) actually look like fairly good value on Midtjylland compounding Celtic’s woes and progressing to the next stage at their expense.
