Our prediction: Celtic v Betis

It's a dead rubber. Let's face it. There's nowhere for either team to go here, and no tangible advantage to gain from a victory.

In that case, expect both teams to field rotated XIs though Betis do still boast the advantage in terms of quality among their squad.

Our prediction: Celtic 0-2 Betis (12/1 at bet365)
