Celtic are set to face Zenit St Petersburg in the last-32 of the Europa League after the Scottish Champions finished third in their Champions League group.

Zenit will make the trip to Glasgow for the first leg on Thursday, with Celtic facing the long journey to Russia next week to play the return leg.

The Hoops last appeared at this stage of the competition in 2015, where they faced Italian giants Inter Milan. An eventful first leg at Celtic Park saw a 3-3 draw between the sides before Celtic were knocked out with a 1-0 loss at the San Siro.

Roberto Mancini was in charge of Inter that night and will return as manager of Zenit this year. His side were the top scoring team in the Europa League group stages this season and cannot be taken lightly.

Here’s a look at five of their best players who Celtic should be wary of ahead of the game.
