  • Cluj will pose a substantial threat on Wednesday night

Glasgow Celtic face off against Romanian side CFR Cluj on Wednesday night in the next step in their European adventure, with defender Hatem Abd Elhamed fit to feature.

Cluj did well to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv 3-2 in the previous round and have taken 10 out of 12 points domestically.

Veteran midfielder Ciprian Deac has been in good form, bagging a brace in Saturday's 4-1 domestic triumph at Chindia Targoviste, so there are attacking threats in this team.

Forward Billel Omrani seems to be their star player.

As the players set off in groups of four, the 28-year-old - who scored and grabbed an assist in the 7-0 thumping of St Johnstone - stopped and looked to be hobbling.

The playoff draw for the 2019/20 Champions League has been made ahead of the third qualifying round matches this week, setting out the paths the remaining contenders must successfully navigate in order to reach the promised land of the group stage. A team which Celtic know are hard to beat.

There could be a return to the team for big money signing Christopher Jullien, who missed out on Saturday due to suspension. It would be ideal to have the Israeli right back in the lineup for Wednesday's match.

As previously mentioned, they also saw off Maccabi in the last qualifying round, and knocked out the champions of the Kazakhstan Premier League Astana in the round before.

Celtic fans have taken to social media to express their hopes that the striker isn't seriously injured. If Celtic FC can come through the initial flurry from CFR Cluj and get the game settled then we could see Celtic FC come away with a win.

While Celtic will no doubt be looking to get off to a flyer in the first leg against Cluj, the Hoops' opponents are no pushovers.
