Fenerbahce vs Celtic: Preview & Prediction

Celtic travel to Turkey to take on Fenerbahce knowing that they cannot qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League. Draws in their opening two matches of the group stage was not enough, as the Bhoys lost their next three games, including a 2-1 defeat at home to Ajax last time out which condemned the Scottish champions to an early exit. But although this is a dead rubber for the Hoops, it is an extremely important clash for...

Europa League Round-up: Liverpool and Tottenham both win to advance to last-32

Liverpool moved to the top of group of Group B and secured their qualification for the next stage of the competition with a hard fought 2-1 win over Bordeaux at Anfield.

Spurs...

Round-up: Europa League – Liverpool, Tottenham and Celtic all draw

Liverpool endured a frustrating evening at Anfield as they were held to a 1-1  draw by Swiss side FC Sion in Group B. The pressure on Brendan Rodgers will surely increase as his side now have only two points from their opening two games, in a group they were surely favourites to win when the draw was made. It started well for the Reds, as Adam Lallana scored his second goal of the competition after good work from Divock Origi on the...

Europa League Preview & Prediction: Celtic vs Fenerbahce

Celtic will be looking to claim all three points when they entertain Fenerbahce in Glasgow having failed to hold on to their lead in their 2-2 draw at Ajax on matchday one.
