The UEFA Europa Conference League returns this week and will see Celtic host Bodo/Glimt at Celtic Park on Thursday night in the first leg of the playoff round for the knockout stages.

Celtic participated in the UEFA Europa League earlier this season, beginning their group stage run with consecutive defeats before picking up back-to-back wins over Ferencvaros in their third and fourth games.

They then fell to a 3-2 loss to Bayer Leverkusen in their fifth game, thereby confirming they would continue their European campaign in the Conference League.

The Celts have been in outstanding form of late and will be looking to replicate that form in the continental showpiece this week.

Bodo/Glimt enjoyed an impressive group stage run which included a 6-1 dismantling of Serie A outfit Roma in their third game. However, they played out a 1-1 draw against Zorya Luhansk in their final group stage game, ultimately denying them automatic qualification for the last 16 of the competition.

The Norwegian side return to competitive action this week after a two-month hiatus and will be looking to kick off their European knockout campaign with a win.
