FC Midtjylland v Celtic betting tips: Tough Danish duel for Hoops
FC Midtjylland v Celtic betting tips and preview
Celtic head to Denmark with a place in the Champions League third qualifying round at stake following an incident-packed encounter in the first leg at Parkhead.
Both teams had a player sent off during the 1-1 draw but with Celtic losing 6-2 at home to West Ham in a pre-season friendly over the weekend, they are 19/10 to beat the Danes on Wednesday night.
You can read our Champions League betting tips for the games on Tuesday and Wednesday but for now we’re looking at the markets and odds in our Midtjylland v Celtic betting tips.
Ange Postecoglou was overwhelmed by the reception he received from the Celtic fans before the Champions League qualifier in his first competitive game in charge but he may get a different reaction the next time they see him if they exit this competition.
The Hoops are 23/10 for another draw against the Danes, who are priced at 7/5 to win despite being outshot 16-3 in Glasgow.
Celtic took the lead through Israeli winger Liel Abada, making his competitive debut, but Nir Bitton was sent off just before the break for an altercation with Anders Dreyer who also received his marching orders in the second half for a second dive.

At the weekend, Postecoglou insisted the heavy defeat by the Hammers made no difference to his confidence that his group of players can win in Denmark.
He said: “We saw in the first leg we played well but it was still a tight contest. It will be the same in the second leg.”
A draw and goals at both ends is 16/5 and another 1-1 scoreline is 5/1 while Celtic or Midtjylland to win on penalties is 10/1 bearing in mind the away goals rule has now been scrapped.
Leigh Griffiths is out with a “slight injuty”, but Postecoglou confirmed Albian Ajeti has recovered from the issue which forced him to miss Saturday’s defeat by West Ham.
The former Australia coach went with a 4-3-3 formation last week but he will be without suspended centre-back Bitton, while Dreyer is missing for the Danes who deploy the same system.
Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor worked their socks off in the first leg and they are 9/1 and 20/1 respectively to get the game’s first goal or 7/2 and 15/2 to find the net.
Evander was Midtjylland’s goalscorer in Glasgow and is 9/1 to bag the opener or 10/3 to score any time but Junior Brumado is the 5/1 and 21/10 favourite for the Danes in the two markets.
