Introducing: The man to ensure yet another famous Euro night for Celtic, Olivier Ntcham -Introducing

Celtic travel to Norwegian outfit Rosenborg this week, knowing that anything less than a win could effectively end their hopes of success in the Europa League. 

Fortunately for fans, and manager Brendan Rodgers, The Bhoys are in good form going into the match against the team that are top of the Eliteserien. Celtic are now unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions, only conceding one goal in that process, and should feel confident of coming away with the victory. Nonetheless, The Hoops will still need to be at their best.

What will have particularly pleased Rodgers is the returning of one of his main players in midfield, Olivier Ntcham.

The France under-21 international had been out of action since October before making his return to The Hoops’ set-up against Hamilton at the weekend. However, the 22-year-old needed no time at all to find his feet, easily slipping back into the heart of the field.

The Frenchman controlled proceedings last Saturday in a comfortable victory. He showed a brilliant range of passing throughout the 90 mins, and controlled the tempo of the game. He also advanced down the field very well, and got into some dangerous positions. He is proving to be a handful for any midfield facing him, and could well be the key to beating Rosenborg.

What’s equally important is that Celtic win well, which could see them leapfrog RB Leipzig (even if the German side win), and leave them in a promising position going into the final round.

Celtic are hoping for famous European nights, and Ntcham could be the catalyst that launches their European campaign to the next level.
