  • Celtic starting XI for Rosenborg

    Celtic starting XI for Rosenborg

    By: Tony Connelly on 20 Sep, 2018 18:38

  • ODSONNE Edouard will once again spearhead the Celtic attack against Rosenborg as the Scottish champions kick-off their UEFA  Europa League group-stage campaign at Paradise tonight.

    The French striker put two past Rosenborg keeper, Andre Hansen, when the two sides met in the second round of Champions League qualification in July. Edouard will look to replicate that form as Brendan Rodgers aims for three home wins in the group which also includes FC Salzburg, RB Leipzig.

    The Celtic manager has made just one change to the starting XI that was held to a goal-less draw against St Mirren last Friday.

    He revealed yesterday that Kristoffer Ajer had still not fully recovered from an illness, so the Norwegian defender has been replaced by Mikael Lustig, who will start in his usual place on the right of a Celtic back-four.

    Filip Benkovic will make his European debut for the Hoops just six days after his first appearance for the club. The Croatian 21-year-old has valuable European experience having made seven appearances in the group stages of the Champions League with his former club Dinamo Zagreb. 

    CELTIC (4-2-3-1): Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Rogic, Forrest, McGregor; Edouard
    Subs: Bain, Hendry, Sinclair, Christie, Mulumbu, Johnston, Griffiths.

    Kick off at Celtic Park is 8pm. For all the pre-match build-up and live updates head over to @CelticFC.
