Real Madrid vs Celtic: clash of opposites

The group stage of the Champions League comes to an end and the last day will be exciting in the fight to stay with the first or second place to advance to the round of 16 of the competition. Indeed, one of the most attractive duels of the sixth date will have Real Madrid and Celtic as protagonists who will face each other next Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabéu.

On the one hand, Carlo Ancelotti's team is the defender of the title and continues to be the main favorite in sports predictions to win this edition of the competition. Indeed, to achieve this they must secure first place in Group F by keeping all three points at home.

For their part, Celtic never lived up to a balanced group and quickly bid farewell to the dream of advancing to the next phase, as well as qualifying for the Europa League third in the group. In fact, he will only have a good result in Madrid left to finish with his honor intact.

Last Real Madrid matches

The Casablanca hierarchy is never in question. Coaches and players pass by, but Real Madrid always remains a sports institution that marks the way forward for other clubs that dream of glory.

Carlo Ancelotti is part of a piece of Merengue history and after winning the fourteenth Champions League for Real Madrid's extensive track record, he will now seek to repeat the feat in this edition of the competition.

Real Madrid is still a reliable team. Part of this success lies in the individual hierarchy always at the service of the team. In goal, Courtois continues to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world, the defense consolidated with Alaba and Militao, the quality of Tony Kross in midfield and a devastating attack with Benzama and Vinícius Junior.

So far, Real Madrid continues to be the undisputed leader of Group F, as sports forecasts had anticipated as a result of 10 points in 5 games played with 3 wins, a draw and a loss. Likewise, Merengue converted 10 goals in favor and received 5 goals.

In the debut for the Champions League, Real Madrid thrashed Celtic 3-0 as a visitor in line with what was expected by sports betting , beat Salzburg 2-0 at home, defeated Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 at home, tied as visitor against the same rival and closed the last day with a 3-2 loss in their visit to Salzburg.

It is worth noting that a loss to Celtic at home could mean losing the lead in Group F to Salzburg given that they are a point clear.

Last Celtic matches

Ange Postecoglou did not achieve the goal planned at the beginning of the season and the disappointment is huge around Glasgow. It is that Celtic failed to be a reliable team during the group stage and the goal of getting into the Europa League as third in the group was cut short at the hands of Shakhtar Donetsk, the main rival according to sports betting .

While it is true that Celtic did not achieve the goal, the failed experience in the Champions League may serve them for the near future considering that the institution had plenty of experience to know what to correct and what to keep in order to become the revelation of Europe.

Currently, Celtic is in last place in the standings product of 2 points in 5 games played with just two draws and three losses in the group stage. That is to say that the Scots still do not know the victory in the contest, while they scored only three goals in favor receiving ten.

In the debut, Celtic was beaten 0-3 at home against Real Madrid in a more than logical result for sports betting. Celtic then drew 1-1 away to Shakhtar Donetsk, losing 3-1 to Salzburg and 2-0 at home to the same rival, closing the last matchday with another 1-1 draw against Shakhtar.

Background between both

Real Madrid and Celtic played 3 matches in the Champions League with a win for the Scots and two wins for Merengue. Also, at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium they faced each other once with a local victory over Real Madrid by 3-0 in the quarterfinals of the 1979-1980 season, in a more than interesting fact for the Champions League predictions .

The magnifying glass on…

Vinícius Junior is Real Madrid's top scorer and one of the favorites in the Champions League predictions to open the scoring next Wednesday. Indeed, the Brazilian winger has scored 3 goals in the tournament, while Rodrygo has scored 2 goals and Modric has scored a goal.
