Champions League: Midtjylland vs Celtic preview, team news, prediction and tips
July 27


Midtjylland will play hosts to Celtic in the second leg of the Champions League second qualifying round on Wednesday. The kick-off is at 19:45 CEST.


After failing to win the Scottish Premiership for the first time in nine years last season, Celtic's misfortunes continue under the guidane of new manager Ange Postecoglou. The Hoops have failed win any of their last three pre-season friendlies, including a 6-2 loss at the hands of West Ham over the weekend. The latest thrashing happened after a 1-1 draw against Midtjylland in the first leg.

Even though Liel Abada opened the scoring at Celtic Park, Evander managed to cancel Celtic's debut strike after the break.

Midtjylland, for their part, kicked off the 2021/22 campaign in the Danish top flight with an unexpected 2-1 loss to Odense before a 1-1 stalemate in Glasgow. Bo Henriksen's men, however, managed to return to winning ways against Aalborg in the domestic league matchday 2 on Saturday.

Team news

Nir Bitton was sent off in the first leg and will not help Celtic in Denmark as well as Mikey Johnston and Karamoko Dembele who have been sidelined with injuries. The Danish outfit, meanwhile, will be without Aral Simsir (Covid-19) and Anders Dreyer (suspension) this time around.


As a reminder the away goal rule has been abandoned in all European competitions recently so Midtjylland will not have an advantage over the Hoops on Wednesday. Still, Henriksen's crop looked much more convincing than the Scottish giants in the first leg. Thus, we wouldn't be surprised if the Danes will get the job done without taking the game into extra-time at the MCH Arena.
