    Nervous but excited for this. Need a solid performance to keep momentum for the season. Hopefully we get a goal first half to kill them off and control the game from there.

    2-2.

    I would go out with our usual tactics, don’t change for this game and invite pressure.

    The players lack the right type of confidence for these away games. We showed Cluj waaayyy to much respect in the away game, they came to us with no respect at all and beat us.

    We were worried Cluj might score and wasted time for a 1-1 which cost us.

    We are the better team with the better players. Go out and play like it’s our stadium. Everyone knows their job in our usual formation, go out and work hard and help each other and we will win comfortably.

    If we just ‘try and get through the night’ we will * it up at worst and at best we will get through but do nothing for our long term nerve problem in qualification.

    Stating the obvious but 1st goal will be important, I expect us to score on the night so if we can do that first that should kill the tie, provided we don't then concede just after that.

    All we need to do is keep things tight, there's no need to go gung-ho for goals when we're in such a commanding position. I think (and hope) lessons will have been learned from the Cluj debacle.

    Sit in, let them come at us and pick them off with our pace up top in Eddie, Jimmy and Mikey.

    Prediction: Full-time AIK 5 - 5 Celtic (Half-time AIK 3 - 0 Celtic)

    We can comfortably sit back with the pace and directness we have in our attack. Eddie, Forrest, Johnston & Christie will rip them apart if they leave themselves open at the back.

    I dunno, I think they will expecting us to sit tight given we're 2 nil up.

    The away goal should see us through and so I hope we go straight for the jugular and get it within the first 30 min, then sit back for a while.

    Forster wasn’t signed in time to be registered for the Europa deadline unfortunately.

    I would be happy with a dirty 0-0 or 0-1 where we kill the game from minute 1 and never get into danger. Maybe score on a counter.TThe sort of game where our defence can come out with chests puffing! Cause they need confidence.

    Think we'll go through, but they'll be 1-0 up at some stage for sure.

    Big Fraser is ineligible.

    3-0 loss if he played :fear:

    We're already through lads! I didn't rate AIK at all. I think we have enough goals in us going forward that even if it got squeaky * time we can hurt them on the counter attack. If they have done there homework properly they should know about our pace on the counter and will surely be wary of that. Would be ideal to be 2-0 up at half time n give some legs a wee rest for Sunday!

    Think the team has been playing well last couple of games. Think we will get a 2-1 win. We've got goals in this team. Is elhamed with the squad does anyone know?

    This is Celtic we're talking about here though. A comfortable, relaxing play-off tie isn't how we like to do things. The one time it looked like we might have one after we pumped Astana 5-0 in the 1st leg, they went 4-1 up just after half-time.

    I'm convinced that all the management have shares in some pharmaceutical firm that makes high blood pressure tablets.
