Celtic know they are up against it in the Europa League this term with a tricky Group G situation to negotiate, starting with a trip to face Betis.


The Bhoys performed admirably in the play-off round to defeat Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, but they have transferred from the frying pan to the fire with Betis, Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros in their group.

The Scottish giants have started their Premiership campaign in underwhelming fashion with two defeats to their name in five opening matches.

Life may become tougher for Celtic who lost Odsonne Edouard to Crystal Palace in the dying stages of the summer transfer window.

Betis have started their La Liga campaign with a mixed bag of results though a narrow 1-0 defeat to table-topping Real Madrid and last season's impressive sixth-place finish prove they are no pushovers.

Our prediction: Betis v Celtic

Celtic will take plenty of heart from their clash with AZ but Betis are a very decent unit these days and will provide a stern test for the Scots.

The Bhoys' boast plenty of goals in the Scottish Premiership but they face a step-up in terms of opposition.

Betis boast a strong squad with seasoned veterans and upcoming stars among their ranks. Celtic would do well to leave Seville with anything more than a defeat.

Our prediction: Betis 2-0 Celtic (7/1 at bet365)
