European football returns for the first time in two months as Celtic prepare to host Spanish giants Valencia on Thursday night.

It will be their first European tie since qualifying for the knockout stages in dramatic fashion back in December.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have enjoyed a successful start to 2019 so far, with seven wins from seven in all competitions. They have also yet to concede a goal while scoring 21.

A Scott Sinclair hat-trick on Sunday helped the champions to a 5-0 hammering over St. Johnstone.

Their string of good performances have come at the right time as Thursday’s game fast approaches.

Valencia are one of seven teams who have dropped down into the Europa League after they finished third in their Champions League group behind Juventus and Manchester United.

They currently sit in eighth place in La Liga and have drawn their last three games.

Here is our Celtic predicted XI for Thursday’s Round of 32 first-leg.
