CELTIC will be boosted by the news this afternoon that Nicklas Bendtner will likely miss the trip to Celtic Park due to injury.
Bendtner is a massive player for Rosenborg and looked one of the better players for them when the side came to Glasgow for the Champions League qualifiers.
Rosenborg confirmed he is unlikely to make the trip with other big games coming up they do not want to risk him for the sake if one match.
Celtic have knocked this Rosenborg side out of the Champions League the past two seasons and now they will meet in the group stage of the Europa league as familiar foes.
Celtic have had the upper hand and frontman Odsonne Edouard scored a cracker of a goal against the Norweigan club at home earlier this season.
It will be up to the bhoys to maintain their dominance over the side who beat Ronny Deila’s side Valarenga 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at the weekend.
Maybe we get some revenge on them for beating Ronny too.
