Celtic v FK Qarabag

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Qarabag have kept clean sheets in four of their six previous Champions League matches
Expert verdict
The name might not be familiar but Celtic know Qarabag pose a threat. The Azerbaijan champs, who beat FC Twente and eventual finalists Dnipro in last season’s Europa League and also held Inter and St Etienne to draws, are no mugs. A trip via four time zones won’t have helped but they can frustrate the Scots.
