We can take some comfort in the fact that Salzburg have lost three games on the bounce but they sit in second spot in the Austrian Bundesliga, Celtic are fourth in the Scottish Premiership and have won only one of their previous five games. The Austrians will see just as much comfort in our form.
Success on Thursday will be determined by who manages to overcome their frailties most effectively. As far as Celtic are concerned, that will mean trying to find the kind of defensive performance that we put in last season.
Our reason for most confidence should be the speed which we can break at, and Salzburg’s only defensive issues. They shipped three goals to Sturm Graz and Malmo in recent outings.

I’m a wee bit late to the party but I’ve signed up for the Great Scottish Run on 5 October to assist Celtic Foundation’s work in the areas of health, equality, poverty, and learning. If you’ve already registered with the event, or you have a pair of trainers and an outrageous disregard for the aging process, get involved.
You can register for the Great Scottish Run here and with the Foundation be emailing them, details here.
This is our club, they are your trainers, that is your outrageous disregard for the aging process. Let’s do it.[calameo code=0003901718cdc4362fa2e? lang=en page=122 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
