Confirmed: Celtic line-up to face Qarabag - Ciftci and Armstrong both start

Here is how Celtic will line up to face Qarabag this evening...

Celtic starting XI: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong; Ciftci

Celtic substitutes: Ambrose, Griffiths, Commons, Rogic, Janko, Bailly, Forrest.

Celtic are looking to finish off the task against Qarabag as they travel to Azerbaijan for the second leg of their Champions League qualifying tie.

After beating Icelandic outfit Stjarnan in the last round, Celtic beat Qarabag 1-0 at Celtic Park last week thanks to a Dedryck Boyata goal - and now face the second leg this evening.

Manager Ronny Deila couldn't take Celtic to the Champions League last year, but he will be looking to erase those memories by taking the Bhoys one step closer to the group stage tonight.

Deila's line-up tonight reflects just how important the game is, with key players such as Craig Gordon, Virgil van Dijk, Scott Brown and Stefan Johansen all starting.

Nir Bitton has shrugged off an injury to take his place in midfield, whilst there are also places in the starting XI for Nadir Ciftci and Stuart Armstrong.

The bench sees Deila given a host of options such as Leigh Griffiths, Kris Commons and James Forrest, in a game which the Bhoys are thoroughly expected to win.
