Mikael Lustig on similarities between Celtic and Malmo

Celtic will face Malmo in the Champions League playoff round.

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig has explained on the club’s official Twitter page the similarities between his side and Malmo.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic will face the Swedish outfit in the playoff round of the Champions League this month.

The first leg of the tie will be played at Celtic Park this evening, with the second leg to be held in Malmo next week.

Lustig has underlined the similarities between the Bhoys and Malmo, and is confident that Celtic will win the first leg of the tie at home today.

First leg key

The first leg of the playoff tie will be held at Celtic’s home ground, Celtic Park, this evening. This match will be of huge importance.

The Bhoys simply cannot afford to concede a goal, or else they could be in serious danger of getting knocked out.

Deila’s side should try to win the first leg by a good margin – maybe 2-0 – to make it easier for themselves for the second leg in Sweden next week.
