Celtic, who are currently third in Group G, have failed to qualify for the next round of the Europa League this season.

Nonetheless, they would still look to conclude the group stage by beating Real Betis, to whom they lost in the reverse fixture.

The Celts are coming on the back of an emphatic 3-0 win over Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership and they have picked up victories in their last four league games.

Kyogo Furuahashi has been a revelation for Celtic, as he has hit the ground running in his debut season in Scotland. The Japanese international has racked up 13 goals and 2 assists in all competitions this season.

Possible Celtic line-up

Joe Hart; Greg Taylor, Carl Starfelt, Liam Scales, Josip Juranovic; Callum McGregor, Michael Johnston, Albian Ajeti; David Turnbull, Kyogo Furuhashi, Tom Rogic

Injured: Christopher Jullien, Karamoko Dembele, Georgios Giakoumakis, Jota

Doubtful: None

Suspended: Cameron Carter-Vickers

Real Betis 

Real Betis have climbed to the third in La Liga table out of nowhere following their impressive run of results in recent weeks.

Their confidence level must be high after beating Barcelona at the Nou Camp in La Liga last week. Juanmi, who has been the most prolific star for Betis this season, scored the winning goal.

Betis will travel to Celtic for their final Europa League game, having already qualified for the next round.

Possible Real Betis line-up

Rui Silva; Alex Moreno, Héctor Bellerín, Victor Ruiz, Marc Bartra; Sergio Canales, Guido Rodriguez; Aitor Ruibal, Juanmi, Rodri; Willian Jose

Injured: Victor Camarasa, Youssouf Sabaly, Claudio Bravo, Martin Montoya

Doubtful: None
