I'd like to see JP Hauge start on the left wing for this one. Having arrived from the Norwegian league where they have played approx. 20 games before he left, he's ready to go.

Sensing a 0-2 victory here.

Hope we rotate

We need to rest Hakan, Kessie and Bennacer. Too bad Gabbia is injured, otherwise we would have rested Kjaer too. The others can come off the bench if need be.

Ibra, Theo and Calabria did not travel for international duty so they dont need to be rested. Although I would like for us to try out Dalot in place of Calabria just to give him some valuable game time to adjust to the team.

Ideally would go with:

Ibra

Leao Hauge Brahim

Krunic Tonali

Theo Romagnoli Kjaer Dalot

Donnarumma

OR

Ibra

Hauge Brahim Samu

Krunic Tonali

Theo Romagnoli Kjaer Dalot

Donnarumma

"Ideal we rotate" and then play our 39 year lion who was tired vs Inter? We need to hone his performances. If he tells Pioli he plays he plays, but if we can't believe in Leao sinking Celtic we should rethink stuff.

A 39 yr old who is fit as fuck and just came back from a months absence and played one game.

Heck if things go well, we can always sub in Leao/Colombo in for him

Why not build Leao's confidence? I bet he'd slaughter Celtic as CF.

Winning the Roma game is the priority.

Resting players and risking losing against Rangers and losing the chance to overtake them is clearly not going to be an option at Celtic.
Yup. This doesn't sound like a bunch that have just sacrificed an unimportant game for a more important one.

This should be Tonali's game. Brahim will probably start also. The rest should be the same as usual. I don't think Pioli will rotate more than that.

Duarte was declared healthy today, would like to see Kjaer get a rest.

It's hard to guess what Pioli will do. Zlatan actually asked to be subbed off against Inter and had Covid but I'm sure he'll want to start. I'd really like to see Hauge but maybe we'll see him come on as a sub again before he gets a start. I'm sure Tonali will start, maybe Diaz too but not too many changes other than that.
Lille will be very hard to beat. So we need all the points from Celtic and Sparta.

I don’t think Pioli will make big changes. Dalot, Tonali and Diaz will be enough.

Celtic defenders:
Ajer 1.98
Jullien 1.96
Duffy 1.93

The first two did well against Lazio last season.

In attack they have a talented 22 yo French striker who played in France U21: Odsonne Edouard, he scored 24 hoals last season.

The posters on that Celtic forum are saying that the manager has already said that Edouard won't play.

The one and only game where Kaka 2.0 looked like Kaka 1.0.

Leave Ibra on the bench.

They wont have Edouard available apparently or Jullien.
Think Kjaer should be rested too.

Donna
Calabria-Duarte-Roma-Theo
Tonali-Bennacer
Samu-Brahim-Hauge
Leao

I think we'll create chances and if not, Hakan and Ibra can be thrown on to get a goal.

I hope to see some changes in the team compared to the line-up against Inter, as I believe that the game against Roma is more important. I would rest Zlatan even if he is a monster physically, Hakan and Kessie.

I hope to see Dalot, Tonali, Diaz and Hauge in, maybe even Krunic and Samu.

Something like: Gigio - Dalot/Calabria Kjaer Roma Theo/Dalot - Tonali Bennacer/Krunic - Saele/Samu Diaz Hauge - Leao.

If we win all our home games , plus sparta away, we will be top anyway

Rest players, and I still cant see us losing. Worst case scenario a scrappy draw which still aint a complete disaster

Be wary of Duffy on set pieces. Guy is a huge threat.

Doesn't protocol require a player to have a negative swab week prior to the game?
