That will be easier said than done for Ange Postecoglou’s injury-hit side who have made a stuttering start to their Scottish Premiership campaign having lost their opening Group G fixture away to Real Betis 4-3 despite taking a two-goal lead in a commendable performance.

They face a tough task against an in-form Leverkusen side who have scored 22 goals in eight games across all competitions thus far and are currently riding high in second place in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich.

Celtic are hoping Callum McGregor, Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgios Giakoumakis can play some part in the match after the trio returned to training following injury, while former Hoops full-back Jeremie Frimpong makes his return to Celtic Park having been sold to the German club in January for £11.5million.
