Okay, this is a slightly lesser level in terms of opponent, but they are still going to be tough for us. It’s not that you sit back to defend and not attack. I’ve always said to the players that it’s not about the possession – it’s about dangerous possession. That’s something we’ll really focus on – about our possession being dangerous, not always thinking you have to dominate the ball. But we must ensure that when we do have the ball, we’re dangerous with it.”center_img Leigh Griffiths scored a late, late winner as Celtic beat Rosenborg on Europa League matchday one Team newsThe hosts will be without striker Patson Daka through injury, while Kristoffer Ajer misses out for Celtic having picked up a knock against St Johnstone last week.Confirmed line-ups Unsere Startelf gegen @CelticFC! #FCSCEL #UnserBewerb pic.twitter.com/bFuVY12CNk— FC Red Bull Salzburg (@RedBullSalzburg) October 4, 2018 2last_img read more
