I will bet again on corner in another UEFA Champions League match between Celtic and Astana. I think that line for corner is too low here and there is value. The scottish team is clear favourite to win this match but it will not be that easy to score against a very organised team. Astana, in fact, is a very defensive minded that doesn't concede a lot of goals. In their domestic league, they have conceded only 14 goals in 23 matches in their domestic league. In Europe, their biggest weapon is the home advantage so they play defensive minded almost always when playing away from home, trying to close things at home. It's obviously that they will be happy with a draw or with an away goal for this match as their big goal is to win their home match.
Celtic will have 60/65% of ball possession in this game. They are a team that love to play with ball possession and to create chances with "tiki-taka". They will have much more shots on target than their opponents and they should collect a big amount of corners, at least 3 more than Astana. Celtic have the better players...they play almost each match with the ball possession and things should not change tomorrow against a defensive minded team.
These two teams met last season...Celtic were able to knock out Astana thanks to a penalty (2-1) in the 92' of the 2nd leg at home. They had 61% of ball possession in that match, collecting 5 corners. Astana collected only 2.
Astana will play defensive minded, tyring to score on counter attacks while Celtic will push hard from the beginning of this match. I'm expecting domination from the home side especially in terms of corners and this line is a little bit ridicolous.
My tip is 1 AH-2.5 corners.
