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.
