AIK Solna vs Celtic Match Preview
Celtic are well on course to reach the Europa League group stage and should complete the job without any alarms when they visit the reigning Swedish champions.
The Hoops are 2-0 up from the first leg thanks to goals after the break from James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard and provided they remain solid at the Friends Arena, they should have no problems progressing to the round-robin phase.
The only disappointment Scotland’s treble Treble winners have experienced so far this season was exiting the Champions League at home to Romanian club CFR Cluj, and that was a hefty blow as Europe’s secondary competition falls a long way short of where they want to be.
Otherwise, it has been business as usual with Celtic and their arch-rivals Rangers both holding 100% records after three rounds of Premiership matches and also being through to the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
AIK, meanwhile, are still struggling to keep clean sheets, as was the case when they travelled to Glasgow last week, and at 2-0 down they will know they simply cannot afford to concede a goal for an eighth consecutive match.
Essentially, Celtic look to be comfortably too good for Rikard Norling’s side and another victory should be theirs before they turn their attention to Friday’s group-stage draw.
