Coral’s bet of the day

  • Celtic take on Hapoel Beer-Sheva in Champions League play-offs
  • Key marksman Leigh Griffiths has been in flying form again
  • The striker has netted three goals so far this season in five games
  • All of those strikes have come in this competition
  • The Bhoys will look to take control in this first leg at home

Griffiths to strike in Celtic win at 9/4

Coral’s bet of the day for the midway point of this week features Scottish champions Celtic, as Brendan Rodgers’ Bhoys look to take a huge step towards securing a place in the Champions League group stage.

Celtic v Aberdeen - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Celtic Park

The Hoops will take on Israeli outfit Hapoel Beer-Sheva in the first leg of their Champions League play-off encounter, and they will enter proceedings at 9/4 to overcome their opponents and star striker Leigh Griffiths scoring anytime.

Celtic have already fought through two earlier rounds to reach this stage and will be aiming to earn a strong result at Parkhead to take on their second leg travels. So, read on to find out why you should back Griffiths to strike in a Celtic win this Wednesday night!

Hoops hitman set for further scoring success

The Hoops will be confident of gaining the upper hand in this first leg encounter on home soil, with minnows Hapoel Beer-Sheva having so far edged through to this stage, conceding three times in their last two qualifying ties.

Heart of Midlothian v Celtic - Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership - Tynecastle

Main marksman Griffiths will therefore be licking his lips in anticipation, as the Scotland international hitman aims to add to his early season tally of three strikes, with all of those having so far come in this competition.

Last season the clinical frontman incredibly reached the 40-goal mark for club and country across all fronts, and he has looked likely of emulating such a superb season this time around again already.

So, with their main man up front firing in the goals in Europe and being boosted by a home first leg, make sure to back a this promising bet of the day for Griffiths to score in a Celtic win at 9/4 ahead of tonight’s action!
