Celtic will look to book their place in the Europa League group stages for the third consecutive year, but standing in their way is a one-legged playoff tie against FK Sarajevo in Bosnia.

Neil Lennon’s men are no strangers to the Balkans, having faced off against Thursday’s opponents fifteen months ago in the UCL first-qualifying round; goals from Mikey Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair sealing a crucial 3-1 win to take back to Glasgow. The return-leg saw the Hoops stroll to a 5-2 win over both legs.

Elhamed or Bitton at the back? Does Edouard start? Celtic's predicted XI for the Europa League clash with Riga

  Elhamed or Bitton at the back? Does Edouard start? Celtic's predicted XI for the Europa League clash with Riga A trip to Latvia is on the cards as the Hoops look to take one step closer to the Europa League group stages. Thursday’s opponent are Riga, the reigning Latvian Higher League champions. They’ll no doubt be prepared to make the one-off tie as tough as possible for Neil Lennon’s men. They sit four points clear at the top of the table after 19 games, losing just two so far. They advanced to the third qualifying round after edging out as 1-0 winners over San Marino outfit S.P. Tre Fiori. Celtic’s path to this stage looks quite different, as we all know. They crashed out of the Champions League qualifiers, Hungarian’s Ferencvaros the side to inflict the 2-1 defeat in Glasgow.

Though while we have that result in mind, it’s important to realise that this time around, things are different. There is no margin for error given the nature of the single-leg ties, meaning our players must be on the top of their game to ensure we progress.

Our 3-0 win over Hibs at the weekend was deserved, as we played some of our most complete football so far this season. It’s time to maintain that level of quality going into Thursday’s game.

Albian Ajeti hobbled off right after scoring on Sunday, a hamstring injury will see him miss this one. James Forrest is also set to be sidelined for a few of weeks with an ankle injury; Christopher Jullien is fit and back in the squad.

Here’s how Lennon could line his side up from the start.

Jamie Redknapp says Mason Mount can replicate Kevin De Bruyne .
Mount scored the winning goal as England came from behind to beat Roberto Martinez's side 2-1 at an empty Wembley to go top of their UEFA Nations League group. The Chelsea midfielder started on the right side of a front three but moved across to the left in the second half- where he was able to pick up the ball and fire a deflected shot past Simon Mignolet.
