Celtic take on Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the Champions League qualifiers this evening.

Celtic are just 180 minutes away from the Champions League group stage as they take on Israeli side Hapoel Be'er Sheva at Celtic Park this evening.

The Bhoys have beat Lincoln Red Imps and Astana so far, and are now closing in on the Champions League group stage, with Brendan Rodgers' side hot favourites to win tonight.

Celtic will be desperate to return to the group stages of the Champions League for the first time since 2013 having had two failed qualification campaigns under Ronny Deila, and Rodgers has named a strong side for tonight's game.

Craig Gordon continues in goal with new signing Dorus De Vries unable to play, but recent addition Kolo Toure does start in the heart of defence with youngster Eoghan O'Connell, whilst Mikael Lustig and Kieran Tierney feature in the full back positions.

Scott Brown and Callum McGregor start in the heart of midfield, with Tom Rogic pushing on to support a front three of James Forrest, Leigh Griffiths and another summer signing Scott Sinclair.

First-team regulars Erik Sviatchenko and Nir Bitton are on the bench, along with summer signing Moussa Dembele and youngsters Saidy Janko, Liam Henderson and Ryan Christie.

It's a strong Celtic side, and a win tonight will take Rodgers' men on the verge of the group stages - something Bhoys fans have been desperate to see in recent years.
