Lincoln’s men are already heroes in their small country. Gibraltar champions of 14 recent season have already eliminated Estonia Flora, 2-0, 0-1 and now have 1-0 lead in clash with strong Celtic. The Red Imps place nine matches on the road in 2016, taking seven wins and two draws but the level of opponents in Gibraltar is incomparable with Scottish champions.
Lincoln impress entire Europe with home win last week, but Celtic wasn’t consistent on the road for quite a while. However, their home form suggest that Lincoln have no chance to offer a battle to Celtic. We should expect Rogers’ men to show their best football and take confident win over the visitors.
Prediction for the match: Celtic to win with -2.5 Asian handicap.
