With talismanic striker Kyogo Furuhashi also out, Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou knows his team face a stern test against a side who finished sixth in La Liga last term.
Right-back Anthony Ralston is available after missing last weekend’s win over Ross County as the Bhoys return to the city that hosted the 2003 UEFA Cup final. No Celtic fans are allowed to attend the game this evening but they memorably took a huge travelling support that earned the Celtic faithful all kinds of awards and recognition all those years ago.
With the teams just officially announced, this is the team that Ange Postecoglou will be hoping can get him some sort of result tonight and incidentally it mirrors exactly our predicted starting XI.
The subs bench is slim pickings and all our attacking minded players start the match. We will have to hopefully get a goal and the. See the game out.
