In midfield, Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley are replaced by David Turnbull, Yosuke Ideguchi and James McCarthy.

James Forrest takes the captains armband as he replaces Maeda on the left. Abada is on the right, replacing Jota whilst Giakoumakis is replaced by Kyogo.

Still on the bench: Siegrist, Oluwayemi, Ajeti, Johnston, Kenny, Shaw & Vata.
