Last meeting

The teams met earlier this month in the Scottish Premiership at Celtic Park. The hosts ran out 2-1 winners but it was a tough fixture for Ange Postecoglou’s men. Kyogo Furuhashi opened the scoring but a Josip Juranovic own goal brought the Steelmen level. Celtic managed to get back in front in the 64th minute through Reo Hatate and that is the way it finished.

Team news

Jake Carroll is a long-term absentee for Motherwell. Nathan McGinley and Rolando Aarons are set to miss the fixture.

Celtic will be without Callum McGregor who is out with a knee injury. Carl Starfelt, Jota and David Turnbull are expected to be out for the remainder of the month. Stephen Welsh is also likely to be missing.

Anything else?

Motherwell have not defeated Celtic at Fir Park since 2013, a run of 14 games.
