Celtic vs Midtjylland preview
With both teams having changed managers and having to deal with uncertainty over wantaway players, it seems overly optimistic to expect a particularly free-flowing game between two fluid sides.

What’s more, Bo Henriksen’s men fell to a shock defeat away to Odense in their opening league game on Friday with Kaba a major loss in attack as the only player to break double figures in the league for goals last season.
