Boyd backs Celtic to qualify

By August 20, 2015No Comments

Tom Boyd believes Celtic can qualify for the Champions League despite conceding two away goals in the first leg play-off.

The Hoops looked to be in cruise control scoring twice inside the first 10 minutes but Malmo attacker Jo Inge Berget came back to haunt his former side with a double.

The pair meet on Tuesday in Sweden and the Hoops have a slender advantage which former Celtic captain Boyd thinks will be enough to seal their place in the lucrative group stages.

“Celtic have a decent record in Sweden and I reckon they can go there and get something,” he told Peter and Roughie’s Football Show.

“They need to defend better than what they have done in recent games. I think they’ve conceded six in their last three games which is quite poor.

“At 3-1 they would have probably been comfortable but at 3-2 it will be very close.”
