CELTIC (2) V LINFIELD (0) (CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SECOND ROUND QUALIFIER SECOND LEG: WEDNESDAY 19TH JULY; 7:45PM)

Celtic head home to a sold-out Celtic Park to try and complete the job against Linfield following the 2-0 victory at Windsor Park on Friday night and reach the third qualifying round of the Champions League.

Team Selection: Celtic will probably the strongest team available, with Leigh Griffiths a doubt due to a calf injury, so he should be replaced by Moussa Dembele. Sviatchenko will continue to deputise for Boyata, and perhaps new signing Olivier Ntcham will feature on the bench.

Prediction: Celtic will want to put on a good performance in front of an expected crowd of over 50,000, and after the events of Friday’s game will also want to score a few goals. Which we will.
