Glasgow Celtic will play in their final Champions League match of the season on Tuesday evening when they host Anderlecht at Parkhead, knowing a place in the Europa League is a real possibility.

Brendan Rodgers side are in a good position to finish third in their group, behind Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich and know as long as they do not get beat by three or more goals, they will then head to Europe’s secondary tournament.

Celtic will go into the game with the Belgian outfit in some confidence, having beaten them 3-0 in the reverse fixture in September, whilst Anderlecht have also failed to pick up any points in their previous five matches.

The Bhoys will also be with a strong squad for the tie, as captain Scott Brown will be named as a starter for the clash, according to a report by Sky Sports.

The media outlet also claims Celtic will also have Moussa Dembele and Nir Bitton available for selection on Tuesday evening after both have recovered from injuries that had seen the pair miss some time from the game.

The French striker had picked up an ankle injury, however, has recovered in time, whilst the midfielder has been able to shake off a knock.

Celtic hat-trick hero Odsonne Edouard, who is on-loan from fellow group rivals PSG, is also in contention to feature for Rodgers’ side on Tuesday evening, following his three goals at the weekend, helping the Bhoys to a 5-1 win against Motherwell and taking their domestic unbeaten run to 67 games.

The Hoops will, however, be without Patrick Roberts for the tie, and possibly for a considerable amount of time, as he has returned to Manchester City as they look to evaluate a hamstring niggle he continues to suffer with.
