July 28, 2021
First-Leg Result: Celtic 1 – 1 FC Midtjylland
Following their second-place finish in the Danish Super Liga last season, FC Midtjylland will be looking to reach the Champions League group stages.
Brondby had too much for them in the regular season last year and with an opening day defeat to OB sure to be ringing in their psyche, they will be looking to respond here.
They had to defend for long periods against Celtic but found a resolute edge and were able to catch the Scottish side out on the counterattack when it mattered.
Jonas Lossl is an experienced head in between the sticks for the Danish side, with former Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko always one to relish a scrap.
Having scored in the first leg, Brazilian Evander is a real threat for FC Midtjylland and he will be looking to supply the likes of Pione Sisto and Junior Brumado here.
Following Rangers’ procession to the title last season, change has been on the cards for Celtic during the off-season with Ange Postecoglou entrusted in the manager’s hot seat.
It has been a slow start for the Australian, who has seen players leave through the door at Parkhead throughout the summer.
However, he will see this game as a real chance to stamp his authority on this side and win the fans over with a potential Champions League run.
Vasilis Barkas is currently the man occupying the goalkeeper’s shirt, with the likes of Scott Bain still not 100% fit and in Greg Taylor, Celtic have a real talent at left-back.
Callum McGregor and James Forrest will be charged with providing energy and industry in midfield while Odsonne Edouard is the man the Bhoys look to for goals.
