Celtic kick off their Champions League group campaign against Benfica tonight, and bookmaker William Hill are offering enhanced odds on the match at Parkhead.
The Hoops successfully negotiated the qualifying rounds to book their place in the lucrative group stage of Europe’s premier club competition, but they now find themselves coming up against much tougher opposition and they will need to win their home games to stay in the hunt for a place in the knockout stage.
First up is the visit of iconic Portuguese outfit Benfica, and midfielder Kris Commons could play a big role in sending them home empty-handed. Commons has already scored some important goals for Celtic this season, and therefore it is no surprise to see William Hill
making him the subject of a “Headline Offer”. The firm go 10/1 on Commons to score and Celtic to win, while they offer 7/2 on Oscar Cardozo to score and Benfica to win.
In terms of match betting for tonight, Celtic are 11/4 to pick up all three points on matchday one of the Champions League, while Benfica are 21/20 to return home to Portugal with a victory and all three points. The draw is currently available at odds of 11/5.
