Brendan Rodgers has decided that he will not make any changes to his Celtic starting line-up from the one which defeated Zenit in the first leg of the Europa League clash, for his team selection for the second leg,

The team for the second leg was announced a short time ago on the club’s official Twitter page.

The team will once again play with three at the back, with Mikael Lustig playing as a centre-back.

Kieran Tierney will once more be in a more advanced position, with Scott Brown and Eboue Kouassi the main midfield men.

Callum McGregor will be tasked with supporting Moussa Dembele, a role he played with aplomb in the first leg as he scored the winning goal.

Rodgers is 100 per cent correct not to tinker with his line-up, as he will be confident that the side selected will be able to dominate the game the way they did the first leg.

There is always the possibility of throwing on the likes of Charly Musonda or Tom Rogic if the Hoops need to chase the game but Rodgers won’t be thinking of that.

With the team he has selected the Hoops boss has faith in the players which beat Zenit that they can do it again in Russia.
