Match Celtic v Molde (KO 18:00)
Date: Thursday 5th November 2015
Celtic would be eyeing to kick-start their Europe League campaign when they play hosts to Molde at Celtic Park this Thursday.
The Scottish Champions have not enjoyed a good season under their belt this season. They have yet to taste victory in the Europa League this season and the last time Hoops met Molde last month in Norway, Celtic fell to a embarrassing 3-1 defeat on the road.

That has pushed Celtic down to the bottom of the group and have collected only two points from their three games.
The upcoming game is now a must win match for Celtic and nothing but all three points will satisfy the bosses at the club. Ronny Deila would like his side to replicate their domestic form to Europe and get their Europa League campaign back on track.
The Hoops are coming in this game with four consecutive wins in the Scottish Premiership and are currently top of the league and has stretched their lead further to six points.
Celtic have some injuries to deal with and defender Jozo Simunovic is a major doubt for the game against Molde and he will be accessed before the game and could end up in the team if he passes the fitness test. Celtic Captain Scott Brown however, remains on the sidelines due to a knee injury. In addition to that Charlie Mulgrew is still unavailable for selection because of a thigh injury.
Manager Ronny Deila is hoping that playing at home will definitely help Celtic but is not taking anything for granted as his side prepare to lock horns with the Norwegian side.
