Coral’s bet of the day

  • Celtic look to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Lincoln Red Imps
  • Scottish Premiership champions are boosted by home supremacy
  • Leigh Griffiths netted an incredible 40 goals last season
  • Of his 53 outings, he scored more than once on eight occasions
  • The Hoops have not lost at Parkhead since last December

Griffiths 6/4 to bag brace or more

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic will look to bounce back from their stunning defeat at the hands of part-time Gibraltarian club Lincoln Red Imps tonight, with Brendan Rodgers hoping to oversee Champions League qualification progress.

Dundee United v Celtic - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Tannadice Park

A comeback victory for the Bhoys would see them reach the third round of qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition, with just a play-off tie remaining after that, and they feature in Coral’s latest bet of the day.

Their star striker Leigh Griffiths will be key to any success gained at Parkhead in this return leg and the Scotland international frontman is a tasty 6/4 to dispatch a double or more in 90 minutes in his latest outing.

So read on to find out exactly why the Hoops hitman is worth backing for two or more goals tonight in Glasgow…

Clinical Griffiths a threat to visitors

Pivotal Bhoys poacher Griffiths was a key component as Celtic wrapped up yet another Scottish league title last season, as he enjoyed a truly rampant campaign in front of goal, dispatching an incredible 40 goals across all competitions.

Celtic v Aberdeen - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Celtic Park

The 25-year-old was on target more than once in a game on eight occasions too last campaign, and will be pushing for further scoring success this season, beginning with firing his club towards Champions League qualification.

A goal from Red Imps forward Lee Casciaro, who recently spoke exclusively to Coral regarding his earlier heroics, was enough to overcome Celtic in the first leg, but revenge is on the cards on Scottish soil.

The Bhoys have not tasted defeat at Parkhead since last December when they were toppled by Motherwell, and Rodgers will seek a solid display to avoid another huge upset.

Griffiths was a stand-out performer for a disappointing Hoops side in the first leg, having come close when hitting the crossbar during proceedings, so make sure to back him a 6/4 to find the target twice or more this time around!
