CELTIC have a tough night ahead, there’s no doubt they have threats on both wings but can Albian AJeti get his act together for the visit of Bayer Leverkusen.

We have predicted the team below and believe this will likely be what Ange goes with on Thursday night.

Hart picks himself.

Ralston is Celtic’s only fit right back again and will keep his place in the side.

We expect Carter-Vickers and Starfelt to continue their partnership as they look to hold off the Bundesliga side.

Left-back is an area where the Celtic manager has options; Juranovic is out injured and can’t fill in, Greg Taylor is still out with a shoulder injury but Adam Montgomery and Liam Scales are both available. We believe the manager will go with Adam from the start. It’s a huge decision who goes out on the left, if he puts in Scales the risk is a bad game could see his confidence blown.

Into the midfield and the revelation that CalMac could yet feature has us excited but it’s not been confirmed if he can make the bench never mind the starting XI at this point. If he does declare himself fit, he obviously would go straight back into the heart of midfield – if Callum’s not quite ready then we expect James McCarthy to fill in again.

Turnbull and Rogic have played a lot of minutes and have found themselves playing to the end of games – something neither are used to. However, with very few options in midfield right now, we expect them to continue.

A front three of Abada, Ajeti and Jota seems to be the most likely scenario to round out the team.

Can this team get the win?

Or do you thing Ange has other players in mind for a starting place?
