Celtic have only won 1 of their last 25 away European games and the Hoops could be out of the Europa League if that record doesn’t improve at Hamburg – see all the best odds here.

Fran Merida’s agent has hinted that it would be difficult for the Arsenal youngster to turn down a move to Atletico Madrid.

The teenager has been hailed as an exciting prospect for some time and produced another example of his talent with a fine goal in the Carling Cup victory over Liverpool last week.

Merida revealed after starring in the Carling Cup victory over Liverpool last week that he was in talks over a new deal at Emirates Stadium.

Atletico have confirmed they are keeping track of Merida’s progress, with president Enrique Cerezo saying the decision could ultimately rest with the player.

Merida’s representative Joseba Diaz has now admitted that his client would find the idea of joining Atletico appealing.

“We have an offer from Arsenal but Fran Merida has an ‘illness’, for want of a better word, and that is Atletico Madrid and you can’t do anything about that,” Diaz said in the Daily Mail.
