Ange Postecoglu's side head to the Spanish capital for their final group game in the Champions League but they could be in for a long night

Real Madrid welcome Celtic to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on matchday six of the Champions League on Wednesday evening, with top spot in Group F still to be decided.

The defending champions know that a victory against the Scottish side would see them finish as group winners, while a draw could also be enough depending on RB Leipzig's result against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Celtic for their part have nothing but pride to play for as they are guaranteed to finish bottom of the group.

Real Madrid vs Celtic latest odds

The Spanish and European champions won 3-0 when the sides met in Glasgow earlier in the competition and can be backed at 1/4 (1.25) with bet365 to claim another success.

The visitors for their part have picked up just two points from their five matches and are offered at 8/1 (9.00) with the draw priced at 11/2 (6.50).

Real Madrid vs Celtic first goal scorer odds

Karim Benzema is in the matchday squad but it remains to be seen if the Frenchman is fit enough to start having missed the last couple of matches.

Benzema is available at 9/4 (3.25) to open the scoring with Vinicius Junior at 7/2 (4.50) and Rodrygo Goes at 11/2 (6.50).

For Celtic, Kyogo Furuhashi is the shortest priced player to break the deadlock at 9/1 (10.00).

Real Madrid vs Celtic preview

Madrid had wanted to be able to take things easy in this game and rest players, yet their defeat on matchday five in Leipzig obliges them to field a strong team and go for the win.

Los Blancos want to top the group and they should be backed to get the win they need to assure they are in the draw for the last-16 as group winners.

In the first match between these sides Celtic came flying out of the blocks before Madrid asserted their control to win comfortably.

We should expect Ancelotti's men to show their class on Wednesday night and the hosts should have few problems against clearly inferior opposition.

Real Madrid vs Celtic tips and predictions

Madrid to win to nil is priced at a healthy looking 5/4 (2.25) while backing them to score in both halves could also be an interesting option at 8/11 (1.72)
