Feyenoord vs Celtic odds


*Odds correct as of 08:30 on September 19

Feyenoord are back the Champions League, making their return to the competition for the first time since 2017/18. However, the Champions League doesn’t bring happy memories for the Dutch side since its rebrand. Despite winning the European Cup in 1969/70, Feyenoord have only made it past the first group stage of the Champions League on one previous occasion, doing so in 1999/00. At the turn of the century, Feyenoord advanced to the second group stage before bowing out.

Celtic don’t fare much better in the Champions League. The 1966/67 European Cup winners have entered the Champions League in each of the past 12 seasons, but in six of those they failed to make the group stage, falling in qualifying. And when they have made the group stage, Celtic have almost always been knocked out there, only advancing once in 2012/13, reaching the last 16. The Scottish side have won just one of their last 21 Champions League matches, drawing five and losing 15.

He’s joined on the sidelines by injured goalkeeper Justin Bijlow while Antoni Milambo, Patrik Walemark and Ayase Ueda are doubtful. Reo Hatate made a cameo at the weekend for Celtic following injury and could feature here, but Cameron Carter-Vickers and Marco Tilio aren’t expected to be ready. Liel Abada is a long-term absentee.
