Celtic to finish the job

The Champions League is back on Tuesday and it should be another round of thrilling games to consider. We’ve picked out three ties where the result is by no means certain.

Celtic to beat Cluj @ 20/39

The Scottish champions are in action on Tuesday night when they take on Romanian side Cluj with the tie still not decided after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

The Hoops have been handed an injury boost as winger Mikey Johnston is back in full training after missing the first leg and the win over Motherwell at the weekend.

His return will be a boost for boss Neil Lennon as he scored a spectacular equaliser in the first-round match away to FK Sarajevo – and followed that up with the opening SPFL goal of the season at home to St Johnstone.

Lewis Morgan was his replacement in the past two matches and he will be the one to step aside if he is fit.

Lennon will check on the fitness of Hatem Abd Elhamed before finalising his side but he will know they are in for a battle as Cluj prepared for the tie by resting their entire first team for their league match at the weekend.

The Hoops’ extra class and a packed out and noisy Parkhead should see the home side through to the next round.

Ajax to beat PAOK Thessalonika @ 10/31

The Dutch giants were held to a 2-2 draw in the first leg and will need to be on their game to overcome the Greek champions in the second leg.

Ajax are much changed from the side that swept majestically to the semi-finals of the competition last season, before succumbing to Spurs, but they should have enough to see off PAOK.

They will have to do it without whizkid Brian Brobbey who is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering knee injury during training on Friday.

The 17-year-old is expected to be the next big thing coming out of Amsterdam but he will miss out on Tuesday.

Dynamo Kiev to beat Club Brugge @ 21/20

Kiev are a goal down from the first leg and will be up against a Brugge side in good form with four straight wins and unbeaten in seven but their away form in the Champions League is poor with 11 defeats in their last 15 away ties.

The home side are unbeaten in their last four home Champions League matches and, although their league form is not great, they should just have enough to beat the men from Belgium.
