Celtic will take on Anderlecht in their final Champions League game of the 2017-18 campaign.

The Bhoys were pitted in a tough group alongside PSG and Bayern Munich, but they have a good chance of reaching the round of 32 stage of the Europa League, should they avoid a three-goal defeat against the Belgian side.

In the corresponding fixture, Brendan Rodgers’ side defeated Anderlecht 3-0 in Brussels to pick up their only points in Group B. Anderlecht, meanwhile, have lost all of their games so far.

Ahead of the match, Rodgers revealed that French striker Moussa Dembele is fit to play the match. He sat out two league matches against Motherwell through injury, but in all probability, the former Liverpool manager will start with Leigh Griffiths upfront.

Celtic starting XI

Patrick Roberts is a long-term absentee with hamstring problems but Rodgers has enough options without him.

Celtic have not won a Champions League group game at home since October 2013, and they should be looking to improve that home record.
