Substitutes – Barkas, Hazard, Taylor, Duffy, Bitton, Ajeti, Klimala, Rogic, Frimpong, Henderson.

Celtic badly need a victory tonight, not only to keep hopes of qualification from Group H alive, but to ease the pressure building on the Bhoys boss.

Lennon has faced a fierce fan backlash this week after more dropped points against Hibernian at the weekend.

No surprise then that he’s as fielded about as strong a team as possible for tonight’s fixture.

Odsonne Edouard and Christopher Jullien return to the starting lineup, which will be a boost for fans.

Elsewhere, Olivier Ntcham also comes into the midfield at Tom Rogic’s expense.

Broadcast Details

Tonight’s match is not on the club’s ‘Pass To Paradise’ streaming service for season ticket holders as it is away from home and in the Europa League.

Celtic TV will be broadcasting live audio coverage of the fixture, for subscribers worldwide.

BT Sport 3 is where you want to be for TV coverage within the UK and Ireland.


If you can’t watch that, BBC Radio Scotland will be providing live commentary over the airwaves and online.

Fan reaction

Starting Edouard appears to be a popular decision.

As you can imagine, fans are also hoping big Jullien can come in and steady a beleaguered defence.

Giving Hatem Abd Elhamed a run at right-back is also catching the eye of supporters. There’ll be an expectation he can add more to the overall Hoops performance than the attacking Jeremie Frimpong.

It’s a good team. There are no excuses. Get the job done Celtic.

These fans have taken to Twitter tonight to share their thoughts on it all…
