Scottish champions Celtic travel to Sweden with a narrow lead, as they face Elfsborg in the second leg of their Champions League third round tie this evening. 

Chris Commons goal separates the sides, after the Hoops claimed a 1-0 victory over the Swedish outfit in Glasgow last week. 

Neil Lennon's side will hope to take a huge step towards qualifying for the group stages with victory in Sweden, but there is still all to play for with Elfsborg boasting an impressive home record on their synthetic pitch at the Boras Arena. 

Elfsborg have only been defeated once in their nine home league games this season, leaving Celtic with a tricky task as they try to adapt to playing conditions. 

Celtic welcome back striker Georgios Samaras and defender Kelvin Wilson back to the squad after the pair missed Saturday's victory against Ross County, with the duo expected to start. 

Winger Derk Boerrigter will miss the game however, after he picked up an ankle victory at the weekend. 

On-loan Celtic forward Mo Bangura remains a big doubt for Elfsborg as he continues to suffer from a hamstring problem.
