Celtic vs KR Reykjavik: Commons ready to help Hoops to win

| 22.07.2014

After a largely drab start to life under Ronny Deila, Celtic fans will be hoping for bigger and better things when KR Reykjavik visit Murrayfield.

The Bhoys are 1/14 for victory on the night while the draw can be priced at 17/2 and an away win can be backed at a distant 25/1.

But with the Hoops aiming to improve on their 1-0 away win in Iceland, here at News.Ladbrokes we’ve picked out three top bets to help you end the night with some cool hard cash in tow.

Kris Commons to score first @ 9/4

Named as one of 35 stars acknowledged as part of UEFA’s Best Player in Europe awards Commons will go into this game keen to start the season as he means to go on.

The 30-year-old scored 32 goals for Celtic last time and after netting in a friendly against Dinamo Dresden at the weekend, looks the best shout to score the opener here.

Celtic to beat KR Reykjavik 2-0 @ 13/2

The Bhoys struggled for goals in the first leg and while a comfortable win is predicted, we reckon you could do far worse than having a punt on 2-0.

Eight of Celtic’s last 10 home wins in European competition have come in games where the Hoops have found the net twice and with Reykjavik posing little attacking threat, 2-0 looks a great pick.

Callum McGregor to score anytime @ 11/10

With Celtic heavy favourites for victory the reality is that you will struggle to find much value in the anytime goalscorer market for this game, but Callum McGregor could be one to tempt.

Ronny Deila started the 21-year-old in the first-leg and was duly rewarded with a goal just six minutes from time. Expected to start again here, he could be one to get on the scoresheet again.
