SlipsTips Tips: Real Madrid vs Celtic


SlipsTips returns to share a selection from Real Madrid’s meeting with Celtic in Champions League Group F on Wednesday evening.

Real Madrid vs Celtic (Wednesday, 17:45)

Celtic conclude their Champions League campaign with a trip to face current holders Real Madrid on Wednesday evening.

While the Hoops are guaranteed to finish bottom of Group F, Carlo Ancelotti’s side secured their place in the last 16 with two games to spare.

I’ve covered this contest in more detail in a separate match preview but I’ve since identified another angle of attack that looks a little too big to ignore.

While Celtic will be up against the odds on Wednesday evening, Ange Postecoglou’s side are priced up at 5/6 with SkyBet to hit three or more corners during this contest and that price makes appeal.

Granted, Real Madrid are expected to dominate possession for long stages in this match, but Celtic are a side more comfortable when they can be positive so it’s unlikely they’ll just sit deep and try to restrain their illustrious hosts.

What’s more, already-eliminated Celtic can afford to approach this match-up with a relaxed attitude, so three or more flag kicks doesn’t look like too much to ask of a team who tend to play on the front foot from the off.

The attack-minded Hoops are averaging 7.17 corners per-game domestically this season, not to mention they have covered the 3+ line in each of their five Group F outings thus far.

In fact, Ange Postecoglou’s side have delivered a minimum of five team corners in all five of their group games this season, including September’s reverse fixture with Real Madrid.

Despite their domestic dominance, it’s also worth pointing out that Real Madrid have conceded a minimum of three flag kicks in four of their last five La Liga games, as well as four of their five matches in this season’s Champions League so far.

With this in mind, coupled with the likelihood of the visitors finding themselves chasing the game, siding with three or more Celtic corners stands out at 5/6 with SkyBet.
