Pushing for a spot in the knockout phase is going to be tough for Celtic.

They are in Group G along with Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros and Ange Postecoglou’s side are 7.00 outsiders to top the table.

Celtic, 51.00 to win the Europa League, start their campaign with a tough trip to Real Betis but will be buoyed by their 3-0 win at home to Ross County on Saturday and are 5.2 to win on the road.

They also get more of a rest than Betis, who faced a 10pm Monday kick-off at Granada in their latest La Liga game which they won 2-1.

Real Betis are 21.00 to win the Europa League and 2.38 second favourites to top the group.

Managed by former Manchester City and West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, Betis have struggled in the early stages of the season and failed to win any of their first three games ahead of the international break (D2 L1), although they pushed Real Madrid close in their sole defeat before finally getting off the mark.

Betis, hampered like a lot of clubs by the La Liga salary-cap crackdown, are 1.67 to beat Celtic while a draw is available at 3.8.

Verdict

We are back Real Betis to live up to their favourites tag.
