Celtic will try to win three out of three wins in all competitions when competing against each other FK Baumit Jablonec in the return leg of theirs Europe League Third round qualification on Thursday.

The Hoops take the lead in Parkhead with two goals, in the next round a playoff draw against AZ Alkmaar awaits the winner.


Prediction for this match

Ange Postecoglou is now starting to enjoy life as a Celtic trainer after a successful week both domestically and in Europe. His team won two games and scored 10 goals.

The Hoops won the first leg of their Europa League qualifier in the Czech Republic 4-2 last Thursday, before taking a clear 6-0 home win against Dundee in the Scottish Premiership.

Summer signature Kyogo Furuhashi, who scored against Jablonec last week, also scored a hat trick against the dark blues on his home debut in front of 24,500 cheering Celtic supporters. Tom Rogic, Anthony Ralston and Odsonne Edouard were also on Parkhead’s scorers’ list to help the Hoops claim their first league win of the new season.

Postecoglou praised an “incredible” debut for his new Japanese signing but was just as impressed with the forward’s work ethic and defensive efforts as his clinical graduation on goal.

Celtic are now focused again on the European duel, in which they can take a lot of confidence, knowing that even if they lost they would advance to the next round by one goal.

Postecoglou will, however, want their players to build momentum and not take off the gas as the Australian looks to build strong form in just over two weeks ahead of the first Old Firm derby of the season.

From the third qualifying round onwards, Celtic will face Dutch club AZ Alkmaar in the last playoff round of the Europa League, although a loss in the overall standings means that the Hoops will be downgraded to the first Europa Conference League.

Although Jablonec are two goals behind, Jablonec can take some confidence in the second leg after posing a threat several times in the final third last Thursday.

The Galacticos built a number of chances and had 15 shots on goal on Celtic’s goal and another threatening performance will be required mid-week to outperform their Scottish opponents who have found their form on goal themselves.

Since the first leg, Jablonec played an entertaining 2-2 draw at home against the Bohemians in 1905 in the top Czech division on Sunday.

Petr RodaThe men were behind until the 77th minute when they scored twice within six minutes to turn the game upside down. However, the hosts could not get all three points as they received a penalty in the 94th minute.

Jablonec will go into the second leg on Thursday after qualifying only once for the group stage of the Europa League in 2018.

Roda’s team apparently has a steep mountain to climb and has to show their performance in order to have a chance of making it through to the next round.

Celtic will continue to be without a striker Leigh Griffiths and defense attorney Christopher Jullienwho continue to recover from related calf and knee injuries.

Summer signature James McCarthy has been training with his new team-mates since arriving from Crystal Palace and could be on Thursday’s matchday squad, although the Irish midfielder is unlikely to get a spot.

After impressing as a central striker last weekend, Furuhashi will keep his place in the first XI ahead of Edouard James Forrest and Liel Abada the most likely candidates to join the Japan international in a three-man attack.

As for Jablonec, Roda is expected to stick to a 4-2-3-1 formation, but could be interchangeable if necessary to take on a solid five-man midfield.

Experienced winger Václav Pilar, who scored in both the first leg and the league game last weekend, will start on the left with Tomas Malinsky operate on the right and Martin Dolezal expected to lead the line of scrimmage.

Celtic possible starting line-up:
Hard; Ralston, Bitton, Starfelt, Taylor; McGregor, Soro, Turnbull; Abada, Furuhashi, Forrest

FK Baumit Jablonec possible starting line-up:
Hanus; Holik, Kubista, Zelezny, Krob; Povazanec, Houska; Malinsky, Kratochvil, Pilar; Dolezal

Probability: Celtic 3-0 FK Baumit Jablonec

The first goal on Thursday could be decisive in this duel; If Celtic get the opener it should be enough to confirm their spot in the next round, but if Jablonec hits the net first, it could be a nervous fight for the hoops.

However, we believe the men of Postacoglou will have no problem taking a comfortable win as Parkhead has more goals to celebrate.
