'It may sound ridiculous': Chris Sutton has just predicted the result of Celtic v Real Madrid tonight
Sutton has made his call in the Daily Mail as the Scottish champions take on the reigning champions of Europe this evening.
He thinks that the Bhoys can get a 2-2 draw from Carlo Ancelotti’s men, who beat Liverpool to win last season’s crown in Paris.
Celtic are coming into the game on the back of a thumping 4-0 win over Rangers which has put them in a great position in the title race.
Sutton makes Celtic v Real Madrid prediction
Sutton said: “Ange-ball worked a treat in that 4-0 rout of Rangers on Saturday. Celtic play an attacking brand of football, similar to that we see from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City with short, sharp passing and inverted full backs.
“I don’t expect Ange Postecoglou to go changing the way Celtic play because the European champions are in town. He will take the risk in the hope of getting the reward and why not?
“Celtic will out-run Real Madrid, I have no doubt about that, so let’s see what happens under the lights at one of the world’s most boisterous grounds.
“It may sound ridiculous to you, but if everything clicks, there’s no reason why Celtic can’t hurt Real. Score prediction: 2-2.”
We have seen numerous times down the years how much teams – even the cream of the crop across Europe – struggle in the hostile atmosphere at Celtic Park.
That can help bridge the gap in terms of experience and financial muscle on a hugely exciting night for the Hoops, and they can get a result.
It will be intriguing to see Celtic take the game to Madrid – if indeed they do – and discover whether Sutton’s prediction comes through.
