Celtic, who face Aberdeen at Celtic Park this Saturday afternoon, will be hoping for a good result at home to the Scottish Premiership. The Hoops recently lost 4-2 away at the Hibernian, so they will be eager to bounce back with a win over Aberdeen this weekend.
Angelos Postecoglou will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and may make some adjustments to his starting XI for this game. Kyogo Furuhashi was expected to lead for the Glasgow Giants in the final third, with Oh Hyeon-gyu making way for him and on the bench.
4-3-3 Celtic vs Aberdeen predicted line-up
After the midweek break, Joe Hart will play on both Celtics teams. Carl Starfelt will join Yuki Kobayashi at the center of Postecoglou’s defence, as they look to maintain a solid defense for the 90 minutes.
Anthony Ralston will play at right-back, while Greg Taylor will hope to draw attention at left-back on the other flank. Both of them will be given the right to push forward and express themselves in the opposing half.
Andrei Bernabei will provide cover at right-back on the bench. However, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Alistair Johnston are still the only Celtics players who missed the game due to injuries.
Reo Hatate, Callum McGregor and Matt O’Riley will form the Celtics’ midfield as they try to control the ball in the middle of the pitch and create some clear chances in the final third.
Tomoki Iwata will wait for his chance on the bench and, if Postecoglou chooses to call his services, he will make an impact in the second 45 minutes.
Sead Hakšabanović will try to catch the eye on the left, while Jota will hope to show his quality as a wide player on the right.
Kyogo Furuhashi will lead the Celtics’ offense. He must find a way to threaten Aberdeen’s goal this Saturday afternoon.
Oh Hyeon-gyu and Liel Abada will have to be content to sit on the bench, and if the basketball team needs to score by then, they could make an impact later in the game.
