One of last week's disappointments was the lack of goals at Celtic Park as Celtic laboured to a victory over Stjarnan. Ronnie Dalia will be looking for better finishing from his team as they spurned a bundle of chances in the first leg at home. At least Celtic got the win though and overall the score should have been more than 2-0. Ciftci and Forrest struggled somewhat up front but Boyata the young Belgian scored animpressive goal and was one of the stand out performers for the Celts.
Stjarnan will have brought the game back to Iceland still alive and an early goal for the home side tomorrow could really put the pressure on the Scottish champions. Hansen and Finsen were impressive as a partnership but they just did not get enough ball to cause problems in Glasgow. At the Samung Vollurrin tomorrow Stjarnan will be looking to get a goal early and keep the pressure on Celtic. I do think though that Stjarnan defended well in the first tie of the game but I just cant see them pulling off a shock here.
While Celtic failed to take their chances in the first leg they did create enough to win two games. Rather than go for the straight up win though which is a terrible price I am looking at the corners market, Celtic to get over 5.5 corners is the play for me tomorrow, after 10 in the first tie I think Celtic can easy get 6 or more here tomorrow night.
