    Important we keep our composure here, do that and we should be fine.

    You'd expect them to go the same way they did in that second half, but I'd have expected us to have came up with a way to counter it better than we did last week. Personally would go with the 352, better placed to deal with their narrow wide midfielders, and you'd fancy griff and eddy to give their 2 centre halves a torrid 90 minutes.

    We get so much more out of Eddy when he plays with a partner.

    This feels like our chance to "get back" that loss to Cluj. Can put that well and truly behind us on Thursday.

    Fancy them to score but if we continue to perform 3-1.. more worried about the cup game Sunday and that's saying something

    As bad as we were in the second half last week their keeper still had to make 2 excellent stops to prevent us scoring and for me overall is the main reason we are not kicking off with a lead on Thursday night. It seems like they don't give away much so likely that performance last week was not a one off. Having said that if we create the number of clear cut chances as we did last week the game is there for us to win.

    I hope we do the job in the first half. We can't struggle with them if we want to achieve something in the next rounds:smoke:

    Right at them from the off AGAIN! More clinical in front of goal. The nerves kicked in in the 2nd half last week, just don't see that happening again at home with us lot behind them. :ynwacelti

    Can't help but feel they will get a goal over here so its going to be down to how many times we can break down their defence.
    Think if we play two strikers we will have a better time of it,lets see what griff and eddy can do to their defence....3-1.

    I honestly think the game will come down to how both start the match.

    If they come out and have a go like they did second half, they could cause us a couple of problems, but if we start like we did over there we'll be out of sight by half time.

    Just hope Lennon has a plan for the high press that doesn't involve hoofing it to nobody or out the park.

    Exactly. We just need to push on them. That's all.

    We beat them if we go right at them. Really attacking and press them all over..

    They genuinely won't be able to handle it..

    They haven't played much football and aren't great away from home..

    We've got player's to hurt them big time..

    I didn’t see too much to fear from these in the first leg.... fancy an early goal and a relatively easy night.

    Two big game players missing, Brown and Christie..

    We need to be careful and professional.

    With Christie suspended and Brown potentially injured... I'd go with a midfield 3 of;

    McGregor (deep lying)
    Ntcham (box-to-box)
    Rogic (no. 10).

    in a 3-4-1-2 system

    We got this.

    As long as our defence are on point then even with Brown and Christie missing I'm confident we can see this out in the proper stressful fashion Celtic operate in Europe.

    2-1

    If we get through this round, does anyone known if we will be playing home or away in the first leg of next tie? I have to roster all my shifts for March and will prob go to the home match
