The Bhoys were dumped out of the Champions League at the first hurdle by Hungarian side Ferencvaros in a shock result for Neil Lennon’s side.

He will demand a big performance against Riga in order to inspire some form of solid European campaign.

The Latvian side were also dropped from the Champions League following a defeat to Maccabi Tel Aviv.

They just about edged their way beyond San Marino side Tre Fiori despite being overwhelming favourites, but how will they fare against Celtic?

Our prediction: Riga v Celtic

We’ve been here so many times with Celtic, but they do tend to get the job done when it comes to at least reaching the group stages.

They’ve made it to the Europa League knockout rounds in three consecutive seasons since reaching the Champions League group stage. The last time they failed to reach the second-tier group stage was in 2011.

Riga were very poor in the last round and Celtic will feel confident of being able to put in a professional – winning – performance tonight.

Our prediction: Riga 0-2 Celtic
