Rodgers: Win is a must for Celtic against Rosenborg

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says victory tonight is the only way they can guarantee themselves a shot of qualifying for the Europa League knockout stages

The Scottish champions are currently tied with second-place RB Leipzig in Group B – albeit behind on an inferior goal difference.

Therefore, Rodgers is targetting a win tonight over Norwegian side Rosenborg BK in order to keep their hopes alive with group leaders Red Bull Salzburg coming up next.

“There have been lots of big games and this is the next big game for us,” said Rodgers, according to Sports Mole.

According to the Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers, the fight the team has put so far in the Premier League would make their former chairman happy.

“We want to go into our last game at Celtic Park with an opportunity to qualify and if we get a victory tomorrow night then we have an opportunity to do that.

“We understand and respect Rosenborg and that respect has grown and they’ve come off the back of a celebration of being champions again for the fourth consecutive time.

“So we know it can be a difficult game for us and that is what we will prepare for.”

The Celtic-Rosenberg match will begin at 18:55 (CET) tonight at the Lerkendal Stadion.
