Anderlecht v Celtic

Celtic are visiting Anderlecht this evening for their second Champions League group game (kick-off 7.45pm).

Defender Anthony Ralston is set to miss out for the visitors with a knee injury and join Erik Sviatchenko and Eboue Kouassi on the sidelines.

But Dedryck Boyata came through unscathed after his weekend return to action. Leigh Griffiths was also expected to start despite the recent availability of Moussa Dembele.

"We love to play at home but we are a team that enjoys playing away because the space can open up a little bit more," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "We can control the ball, be good in possession but we are also a fast team who can counter-attack."

Anderlecht are currently missing injured winger Andy Najar while midfielder Sven Kums is suspended.
