Celtic shall be hoping to continue their 17-match unbeaten streak on Thursday night when they attempt to earn a place in the Europa Conference League round of 16, hosting Bodo/Glimt.
The visitors head into this fixture in strong form themselves, and they did impress during their group games, which included a 6-1 victory over Roma.
Celtic have been in devastating form as of late, and they have not lost a single match since their fifth group game in the Europa League back in November against Bayern Leverkusen.
Since then the Hoops have gone 17 matches in a row without a defeat, and that is something that they shall be hoping to continue, especially after their impressive Scottish Cup performance at the weekend.
The club were able to knockout Raith Rovers with a 4-0 victory, which included goals from four separate players, showcasing the attacking qualities within the team.
In the Scottish Premiership, no team has scored more goals than the Hoops, while they have also conceded the least, and Joe Hart has managed to keep four clean sheets in his previous six outings.
Despite winning half of their group games in the Europa League, they were only able to finish third, which saw them transfer to this competition, but they shall now be hoping to progress further within the tournament.

Bodo/Glimt are unbeaten in the Europa Conference League so far this season, having earned a second-placed finish in Group C with a trio of victories and draws, which is something that will have provided plenty of confidence to them.
However, it was in all of their away games that the Norwegian club were unable to earn three points, which could make the trip to Celtic Park a difficult one.
The club have been involved in several friendlies lately in order to keep themselves sharp while they await the start of the 2022 Eliteserien campaign, which will commence in April.
They managed to finish second in the league last season, only losing three times in the process, and the confidence within the squad is certainly there.
However, the lack of competitive matches as of late is something that could prove to be a negative factor for them, especially with Celtic being so sharp right now.
