Our prediction for this match:
Estadio Benito Villamarin will host Thursday’s football match between Real Betis and Celtic, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in the Europa League. Los Beticos have big ambitions for the 2021/22 Europa League campaign, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the Andalusians. Willian Jose has overcome his injury, while both Lainez and Sabaly remain in the recovery room. Summer signing Hector Bellerin is widely expected to start.
The Hoops, on the other hand, are on a quest to regain the Scottish Premiership trophy. Celtic quickly bounced back from the Old Firm Derby defeat to Rangers, with the team beating Ross County 3-0 at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Real Betis. Since key attacker Odsonne Edouard joined Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window, we are tempted to put our money on los Beticos. The likes of Forrest, Dembele, Furuhashi, Johnston, and Jullien have been struggling with injuries of late.
