Spartak set to expose Celtic's shortcomings

Celtic v Spartak Moscow
The pressure’s on Celtic – there isn’t an ounce of pressure on Spartak Moscow. This is exactly the kind of scenario where shocks occur.

Spartak clearly haven’t had a great Champions League but away from home they pop the ball around a treat and they were far superior to Celtic in the home leg.

Results have gone Celtic’s way because they aren’t a great team. They’ve managed to ride their luck into the final round of games but surely that good fortune has to run out eventually. Spartak are a great price.

Expert verdict
Levante have been steadily improving since manager Rubi took charge, culminating in a comfortable 3-0 win at Sporting Gijon last time out. Bookmakers are showing them plenty of respect but they may have their progress checked by a tough Real Betis team who have decent away form.
