Celtic vs Bayer Leverkusen
Celtic and European football go hand-in-hand but the Scottish giants will need to tighten up defensively if they are to advance to the knockout stages. The Bhoys have slipped down the Scottish Premiership ladder in the early stages of the season and a European success here could act as the catalyst to kickstart 2021/22.
Meanwhile, the visitors are one of the leading contenders in Europa League odds this season and the Bundesliga outfit will be tough to beat. Celtic Park has seen plenty of drama on European nights in the past but this has all the makings of a difficult night for the hosts. Back Leverkusen to win outright.
Predictions: Over 2.5goals.
Rennes vs PSG
It hasn’t been short of drama, but PSG’s Ligue 1 season is going as football betting odds have suggested. They are 100% in France’s top flight after eight matches. The Parisians face a Rennes side with just one win in their last five league outings. They might have won their last home match emphatically, but this should still be an easy PSG win.
PSG to win straight up is our pick. On the back of a gruelling Champions League match in midweek, Mauricio Pochettino could name a weakened side, which puts us off going for the spread.
Predictions: PSG win.
