Image for Team News: Neil Lennon’s vote of confidence in Hampden heroes

Celtic are unchanged from the side that beat Aberdeen at Hampden on Sunday for tonight’s Europa League tie against Sparta Prague.

Neil Lennon’s side dazzled during the first half against the Dons with that starting XI given the chance to record back-to-back wins as Celtic return to home territory.

Sparta have only played two games in the last month with the Czech League forced into Lockdown.

After losing at home to Lille and last week away to AC Milan a win tonight is essential if the Czech champions are to retain an interest in this season’s competition

After losing back-to-back home matches Celtic are unbeaten in their last three matches with Ryan Christie and Moi Elyounoussi responsible for six of the seven goals scored in that ‘run’.

In tonight’s other Group H fixture AC Milan are at home to Lille.

CELTIC: Bain; Frimpong, Duffy, Bitton, Laxalt; Brown, McGregor; Christie, Rogic, Elyounoussi; Edouard

SUBS: Barkas, Hazard, Ajeti, Turnbull, Soro, Taylor, Klimala, Griffiths, Elhamed, Ntcham, Henderson
