Celtic take a commanding 5-0 lead into their Champions League play-off second-leg with FC Astana later this afternoon (kick-off 4.30pm).

Midfielder Nir Bitton is doubtful for the game having sustained a foot injury during the weekend triumph at Kilmarnock. He’s recently been switched into the defensive line due to other key absences.

The visitors are already without centre-back pair Erik Sviatchenko and Dedryck Boyata, plus midfielder Eboue Kouassi and striker Moussa Dembele

“We worked very well in the first leg but we need to complete the job,” manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. “We think of it as zero-zero, that is our approach and we want to get a good result.”
