Predicted Celtic line-up to play Molde: Deila goes strong in vital clash

Celtic Stands

Here is how we predict Celtic and Molde will line up this week:

To be played on Thursday 5th November 2015 at 18:00. Venue: Celtic Park,

Odds: Celtic 4/7, Draw 3/1, Molde 9/2

Celtic welcome Norwegian side Molde to Celtic Park later this week as Ronny Deila’s side attempts to get back on track in the Europa League following a 3-1 defeat in the reverse fixture last month.

Celtic had drawn their first two games of the group stage against Ajax and Fenerbahce, but the defeat to the surprise Group A leaders leaves them with a lot of work to do in the weeks ahead if they wish to reach the knockout stages.

Celtic are currently bottom of their group, level on points with Ajax, two points behind Fenerbahce and five points off top spot, but a victory on Thursday will quickly change the complexion of the group with two games still to play.

Celtic’s players will no doubt be buzzing from their recent 3-1 Scottish Premiership victory against Aberdeen and they will be hoping to take that form into this week’s match.
