CHARLIE NICHOLAS believes Celtic will go through to the next round of the Europa League on Thursday because that’s all they have to concentrate on after recent events in the SPFL.
The Sky Sports pundit has tipped Celtic to beat Copenhagen at home to make sure of their entry to the last 16 of the competition but also claimed the Premiership is ‘in the bag’.
Celtic have marched ahead in the lead since January and now hold a twelve point lead over second place. The bhoys have been relentless in their quest for nine in a row and have also been impressive in the Europa League as a whole. The first half against Copenhagen was controlled and well played, the second half, the bhoys had a shocker and will have to make sure they don’t let that happen on Thursday.
For Nicholas, he’s told RecordSport, it shouldn’t be a problem for the bhoys:
“The Premiership is in the bag for Celtic and I think this will be a comfortable European night.
“Copenhagen have no pace up front and little quality in the centre-back department.
“Dame N’Doye scored against Celtic – he is a handful but Celtic could play a high line without getting too worried.
“The two Copenhagen midfielders are decent talents but the rest, I think, are average.”
