Well, I nearly predicted it!

I said last night we’d skoosh it 3-0 but Rosenborg’s early goal scuppered my usual spot on predictions.

Nonetheless, AEK Athens await us in the next round as Odsonne Edouard’s second goal of the evening, and Celtic’s third, was probably far too much for a poor Rosenborg team to claw back any chance of a comeback for the second leg next week.

The coolness and composure by Edouard to finish so comfortably at pace to put the tie beyond doubt was something else. A fantastic player who PSG must now be wondering why they didn’t hang onto him and develop him further, but I suppose that’s now our duty.

The second leg will be a frantic opening twenty minutes or so, with Rosenborg throwing everything at us, but they’ll run out of steam and Celtic should be able to pick them off with ease, setting up a very tasty affair in Greece with AEK.

You know me - I predict it!
