Brendan Rodgers’ side earned plaudits for their performance in the 2-2 draw against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid at Celtic Park on Wednesday night which earned them their first point of the campaign in Group E.

Celtic will look to carry that form into Easter Road against a Hibs side who relinquished their unbeaten record under recently-appointed manager Nick Montgomery with a 4-0 defeat away to Rangers last weekend.

Montgomery had won two and drawn three of his first five matches in charge prior to the Ibrox hammering, and will be looking for his players to provide a positive response against a Celtic side who have dropped only two points in the league thus far.

The sides are separated by 16 points after just nine matches played with Celtic top of the pile on 25 points having made a strong start to their title defence, while Hibs are languishing down in ninth place in the standings having averaged a point per game.
