First thing’s first, the game’s on telly tonight, so tune into BT Sport 3 for it.

The site’s favourite fraud, Roberto Mancini, is kidding himself on that he’s relaxed ahead of the game and not under any pressure tonight.

Brendan Rodgers has correctly remarked that the pressure is all on the Saint Petersburg side this evening.

Scott Brown has stated the obvious and said we’ll need to up our game tonight as well against the Russians.

Zenit can play a lot better, in fact, it’ll be hard to imagine them playing any worse than they did last week, as they put in one of the worst collective performances ever witnessed by a visiting team at Celtic Park, but Celtic should not go in with any fear at the Krestovsky Stadium, and if we get a goal, the tie’s done and dusted.

The match report will be up on the site after the game, and hopefully we’ll be celebrating our progress to the next round.
