Deila said: “This is a game that’s important for us and we will put out a good team. We always make one or two changes – it’s always hard to keep the same team going – but we will play a very strong team.
“To lose a game in the early stages of the Cup is the worst thing – I’ve had good and bad experiences in that regard – but we’ll be doing everything we can to win this one first time around.
“We’ve come through a tough period and it’s now important to keep going, have good performances and then we’ll see at the end of the season who is the best team.
“You need to do everything the same way as you do in the other games because it’s small details that can make the difference.”
