Emanuel Mammana: 'Zenit St Petersburg will learn from mistakes against Celtic'

Kristoffer Ajer, Mikael Lustig and Jozo Simunovic combined impressively

Last week, a late goal from Callum McGregor secured a 1-0 advantage for the Scottish Premiership side ahead of the second leg, which will be staged in Russian Federation on Thursday.

Rodgers may opt to retain the midfield quartet of Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham, Eboue Kouassi and Callum McGregor.

That season Martin O'Neill's side lost to Villarreal in the quarter-finals of European football's second-tier club competition.

"We've studied all aspects of their game to understand why it didn't work out as we planned and to make the most of the 90 minutes we have at St Petersburg Stadium".

Of course, we would have liked to have had one or two more goals but the concentration and our quality in our game was at a very high level.

"I'm confident. We need to play a good game and concentrate without pressure, that's important".

The Bhoys' home form in the Champions League was awful, losing all three matches, and they only made it to the Europa League last 32 thanks to an away win over Anderlecht.

"We've been playing different formations and styles against top quality teams".

"For us now we just want to push on as much as we can. We're thriving on the experience of playing in the Champions League and last 32 of the Europa League".

"My priority is Celtic tomorrow and all the championship games after".

The superb performance in the home leg against Zenit seemed to come out of the blue, and showed that when they want to, this Celtic side can be as good as it wants to be.

"For us, we have analysed the game from the first-leg and, even though we played very well, creating opportunities and didn't concede, there are still areas where we can be better". We always try to score goals and that is our way.
