Celtic will be looking to get the job done at Parkhead when they welcome FC Copenhagen for the second leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie, a week after coming out of their away trip to Denmark with 1-1 draw.
That game was a tight affair with both sides dominating one half and both of them had reasons to be disappointed with just a draw. While Celtic let a number of good chances go begging in a brilliant first half performance that should have seen them score at least two or three more goals, FC Copenhagen missed a late penalty that would have surely seen them win the game.
Ultimately though a draw was a fair result and the 1-1 scoreline means that the second leg is expected to be an entertaining affair. The Hoops will have the advantage of having the Celtic Park crowd behind them and also have that away goal to fall back.
But if FC Copenhagen do manage to score then things will surely get interesting, as Celtic’s lead would be cancelled out and then the only side that can realistically go through by the away goal rule would be the Danes.
Celtic have had their fair share of injury troubles coming into the tie. Thankfully, Scott Brown and James Forrest have recovered from their respective injuries. Greg Taylor is also someone who was out during the first leg and will add some much needed attacking impetus down the left.
Unfortunately, Ryan Christie misses out through suspension while Ntcham is out with an injury he picked up in the first leg.
