Sinclair and Burke hold the key to Celtic win today

Sinclair and Burke hold the key to Celtic win today - Matchday
Celtic have been nothing short of dominant in all competitions in recent times, as they find themselves in the next round of the Scottish Cup and leading the Scottish Premiership title race. 
The Hoops will need to turn their attention towards the Europa League later on today as they’ll welcome Valencia to Celtic Park in the first leg of their round of 32 tie. Los Che are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions and they also secured a draw against Barcelona recently, so Brendan Rodgers’ men will be up against it.

So, with arguably one of the biggest games in Celtic’s season coming up later on today, Rodgers will be relying on two of his star players to step up and make the difference.

Therefore, Valencia won’t know what’s hit them if this Celtic PAIR work their magic…


Scott Sinclair has been one of the standout performers for Celtic in recent times, despite the likes of Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah leaving their mark on proceedings. Indeed, the Englishman managed to bag a hat-trick against St. Johnstone in the Scottish Cup last time out, so he’ll be full of confidence heading into today’s game.

Therefore, Rodgers simply has to turn to the exciting winger once again later on today as his pace, skill and dribbling ability could cause Valencia all kinds of problems.


Oliver Burke has been the star of the show in recent times in Scotland as he continues to produce goals and assists, with an impressive three goals and two assists to his name thus far.

The attacker picked up a knock during Celtic’s 5-0 win over St. Johnstone recently, but it looks as if he has recovered in time to play a part in today’s game as there was no mention of him carrying an injury in BBC Sport’s pre-match team news.

Nevertheless, Celtic will be praying that the winger is primed and ready to start later on today as Valencia will face great difficulties in trying to defend against him, with his attacking qualities giving the Hoops the cutting edge in the final third.
