Neil Lennon guided his side to a 1-1 draw with Copenhagen in the last 32 of the Europa League last night which gives the advantage to the men in green and white for the return leg in Glasgow next week.

Cometh the hour, cometh the man as Odsonne Edouard does what he does best – score on the big occasion – as he put his side 1-0 in front after just 14 minutes with a beautifully clipped finish, Fraser Forster was the other hero on the night with a penalty save late on keeping the scores level.

The Hoops gaffer reverted to a 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 formation with news pre-match that Leigh Griffiths wouldn’t be available which may have affected their fluency in attack, with the striker not expected to be out for long he should make the home tie and be ready to fire his side through to the last 16.

Celts fans took to Twitter at full-time happy with the result but were left to rue a missed opportunity with a poor second-half performance letting their hosts off the hook.

Celtic fans will know that their team has a few gears to go up and will be firm favourites to progress at Paradise with a full stadium and home advantage, few would back against them seeing out the tie in relatively comfortable fashion after coping with what Copenhagen had to offer.
