Uzani wary of Celtic strength

Ferencvaros forward Myrto Uzuni is expecting a tough game when Celtic head to Hungary for their Europa League clash on Thursday.

Celtic are 2.05 to gain their second win of the group stage while Ferencvaros are 3.50 to claim three points. The draw is available at 3.75.

Hoops building form

The Albanian striker, who has scored three goals in his last two games, was impressed with Ange Postecoglou's team, who claimed a 2-0 victory at Parkhead a fortnight ago.

That was a welcome return to form for the Bhoys after they conceded four goals in defeats to both Real Betis and Bayer Leverkusen and they need three points in an empty Groupama Arena to have any realistic chance of a top-two spot that would earn a place in the last 32.

A Kyogo Furuhashi goal and an own goal from Balint Vecsei were enough to claim the win that day and Uzuni is wary that Celtic are in good form.

Uzani sees Bhoys' strength

Postecoglou's team ended a run of five straight victories on Saturday when they were held to a 0-0 draw with Livingston, when striker Georgios GIakoumakis missed an injury-time penalty.

Uzuni said: "Their defence was very good and they had a lot of the ball, but the biggest difference was the passing of the ball.

"They passed so fast that it was often difficult to follow.

"We also have the strength and even though the matches follow each other every few days, there can be no question of fatigue.

"We have to correct the mistakes we made in Scotland. It will not be easy, but we have to control it at home."
