Celtic v Anderlecht

Celtic take on Anderlecht in their final Champions League group game at Celtic Park this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Scottish champions will qualify for the Europa League if they avoid a three-goal defeat to their Belgian opponents. The Hoops already won the reverse fixture 3-0 back in September.

Striker Moussa Dembele is declared as available but on loan winger Patrick Roberts could be out for up to three months with hamstring trouble. He's now back at parent club Manchester City for treatment.

Midfielder Nir Bitton has though recovered from injury after missing the previous three games.

"We played very well in the first game over there and now we look to finish it off at home," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "They will come to attack and look for a victory but that's also what we want. We want to give the supporters a Champions League win at home.

"That would take us to six points, which would show a great level of progress for us at this level."

Anderlecht forwards Alexandru Chipciu and Nicolae Stanciu were both expected to miss out through injuries.
