Predicted Celtic Line-up To Face Dundee FC In Scottish Premiership
Celtic will look to take a step closer to retaining their Scottish Premiership title when they take on Dundee FC at the Parkhead on Wednesday night.
The Hoops were extremely impressive in their 3-0 victory over Ross County this past weekend that saw them widen the gap between themselves and 2nd-placed Rangers to 12 points. Manager Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that his side carries the momentum into this game against Dundee to bag all the three points.
Probable Celtic XI
Manager: Brendan Rodgers
Craig Gordon (GK)
Having been out with an injury since January, the Scottish international should return to action tomorrow, with backup custodian Bain ineligible to feature against his parent club.
Marvin Compper (CB)
The German defender hasn’t featured since the Scottish Cup fixture on March 3rd. With Mikael Lustig not performing well, a call back to the starting XI is very much on the cards.
Jack Hendry (CB)
Replaced Dedryck Boyata at half-time in the previous game and did a solid job. Will be keen on putting on a strong show against his former club.
Kristoffer Ajer (CB)
The Norwegian youngster has grown leaps and bounds this term and has established himself as a mainstay at the back for the Hoops.
James Forrest (RWB)
The 26-year-old has contributed 16 goals and 8 assists in 50 appearances across competitions this term.
Scott Brown (CM)
The club captain is an extremely influential presence on the field for the Hoops. Recycles the ball in the midfield and allows his attacking teammates to flourish.
Stuart Armstrong (CM)
The Scotland international was sensational in the win over Ross County this past weekend. Will want to carry the form into Wednesday’s game.
Callum McGregor (LWB)
With Kieran Tierney sidelined due to an injury, Scottish midfielder Callum McGregor should do the job as the left wing-back.
Tom Rogic (CAM)
The Australian attacking midfielder will slot in as the No.10 for the Hoops and look to pull the strings going forward.
Moussa Dembele (ST)
The French striker has found his goalscoring boots towards the end of the season and will want to make the most of it in the coming games.
Leigh Griffiths (ST)
The Scottish forward’s season has been blighted by injuries. Made his comeback with a short cameo against Ross County and will be hoping to make an impact if given a chance on Wednesday.
