Celtic no hope – even at 6/1

Live on Sky Sports 2: Tue 17:00. We’ve seem a miracle in Medinah – so what about amazement in Moscow? The Daily Record’s Paul Jain preview’s the action

In many ways it’s mission impossible for Celtic tonight on their Champions League visit to the Russian capital.

Neil Lennon’s side have improved their away record with decent showings in the Europa League last season and two wins in the qualifiers this term.

But taking on big-spending Spartak on their artificial home turf is a step up and you can see why the Hoops are as big as 6-1 with BetVictor.

The Muscovites are 3-5 at Paddy Power and are justifiable favourites when you consider the sides’ respective openers.

Celtic failed to test the visiting keeper as they battled to a 0-0 draw with Benfica while Spartak almost claimed the result of the night as they led Barcelona in the Nou Camp before going down 3-2.

On that performance I have to say I can’t see Celtic leaving with anything but pride intact.

Aiden McGeady is up against his former side and is 7-2 at Blue Square to celebrate with a goal.

But he’s more likely to be a creator for the likes of last season’s top scorer Emmanuel Emenike who is 9-2 to score first with Paddy Power and others

Gary Hooper’s been on a hot streak and should start. He is 12-1 at unibet to break the deadlock while new boy Miku is 14-1 with BetVictor.
