Chris Sutton claims that Celtic defender Cristian Gamboa is under pressure to deliver a good performance on Tuesday night.
The Bhoys face Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany for the group stage match and they will be looking for revenge after the 2-0 defeat at Celtic Park in the reverse fixture.
Brendan Rodgers has been dealt injury blows for the European game and will be without senior players Kieran Tierney, Leigh Griffiths, Kolo Toure and Jozo Simunovic.
He is expected to play right-back Gamboa for the match and he is yet to cement a starting role since his summer arrival.
Former Celtic striker Sutton believes Gamboa needs to prove his worth on Tuesday night as he is yet to convince him.
“Jury is out on Gamboa for me. Huge night for him,” Sutton wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Celtic signed full-back Gamboa in the summer transfer window from West Brom as Rodgers looked to strengthen his squad.
Gamboa, 27, has made 51 appearances for Costa Rica and has two years of experience in the Premier League.
The defender has made just eight appearances for the Scottish champions since his arrival and is competing with team-mate Mikael Lustig for a starting position.
He will hope to impress in the crucial match against Gladbach and Celtic will need a positive result if they want their European adventure to continue.
The BHoys have won all three matches since the defeat to Gladbach and did not concede against Rangers, Ross County or Aberdeen.
