Celtic (SCO) v Ajax (NED)


Neither Celtic nor Ajax can afford a false step when they meet in Glasgow as both bid to overhaul Fenerbahce for second place in Group A. Successive defeats have left Celtic three points adrift of the Turks with Ajax just one point better off and a draw would see both sides eliminated if Fenerbahce beat already-qualified Molde. Celtic have gone nine games in this competition without a win — three short of the record — and defender Dedryck Boyata knows there’s no more margin for error. “It’s a really important game. Our last two games in (Europe) were disappointing . . . we didn’t manage to be as good as we usually are. (Now) we need to be at our best.”
