Crazy Championship can continue shock results

Burnley v Huddersfield

The Championship is as crazy as ever this season with no game a gimme and Burnley could find that to their cost against Huddersfield on Tuesday.

Huddersfield have been on a poor run but they have also pulled out some decent results with a draw against Cardiff and wins over Leicester and Crystal Palace and are clearly capable.

It’s also worth forgetting that defeat at Nottingham Forest last week given Huddersfield had to play Wigan on the Sunday before a trip to the City Ground two days later.

Burnley are five without a win and I don’t think they should be considered home bankers.

FK Qarabag v Celtic

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Qarabag have lost only one of their last 18 home matches
Expert verdict
Celtic are getting hot under the collar over a heat-baked pitch in Baku, which may not be up to scratch. It’s been blistering in the Azerbaijan capital – temperatures at kick-off are forecast to be in the mid-30s – so it’s an evening for staying cool, especially with only a 1-0 lead to defend.
