  3. Post update

    That draw is at lunchtime on Monday. Remember, the full line-up of teams will not be completed until the finish of tonight's matches, which kicked off at 20:00.

  4. Celtic manager Ronny Deila on the need for new signings

    "The plans have not changed. It is going to be a totally different game in the next round and we will be a much better team than we were tonight.

    "If we needed to win the game, we would obviously put more into the match."

  5. Post update

    Celtic will not be playing Tottenham in the next round after the English side lost 1-0 away to Besiktas and will therefore not be one of the seeded sides in next week's draw for the last 32.

  6. Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "I think it was a poor performance. They were not 100%.

    "There was a lack of the intensity and aggression that we had against Motherwell.

    "The substitutes were very positive when they came on and that was what was good in the game.

    "But the defence gave away too many chances and you should win if you score three goals away from home in Europe.

    "We have the players to produce good defending, but is more how we play as a team and how we play away from home.

    "Individually, there were some bad performances, but collectively we were too open.

    "We will have to be a lot better in the next round and there are players to come back who were not involved today."

    Fraser Shaw: "I realise it's Delia's first season with Celtic, but I'd thought any new manager's priority would a team's defence. Inept and unsure performances throughout their European campaign which will end in the next round."

    Andy in Armagh: "If Celtic can sort out their defensive organisation over the Christmas/New Year period then they could go a bit further in this competition. However, if they can't sort things out, they could be humiliated by a European giant."

    Pete in Edinburgh: "Outplayed in five out of six group games. Deila is lucky to be through."

    Joe in Leeds: "Let's hope the management teams wish for a Battle of Britain does not happen. Embarrassing watching Celtic struggling against European nobodies, let alone against top English teams who could inflict a cricket score based on the shabby defending of late."

    Joe in Fife: "Ambrose is a nice big bloke, but he completely lacks urgency of thought and awareness of what's going on on a football pitch. That's surely his last game for Celtic."

  8. Post update

    We are still awaiting Celtic manager Ronny Deila's after-match media conference remarks.

  9. Post update

    Salzburg hammered Astra 5-1 in the other Group D game this evening having already comfortably qualified as section winners ahead of Celtic.

  10. Get involved #bbcscotfootball

    Brian Houston: "Defensively weak, but Denayer, Lustig, Brown and Guidetti to come back for last 32 and hopefully some new signings too."

  11. BBC Scotland's Tom English on Radio Scotland's Sportsound

    "They have scored three goals away form home but lost the game. That is inexcusable. That first six minutes of the second half was embarrassing. It was two goals going on five."

  12. Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner on BBC Radio Scotland

    "At half time we were a bit scathing of what we saw defensively and it got unbelievably worse. Dinamo upped their tempo in terms of passing and movement and Celtic couldn't handle it."

  13. Get involved #bbcscotfootball

    EC: "Instead of talking about winning the trophy, it might be worth Deila looking at getting his team to defend properly first."

    Andrew Priestley: "Plain and simple, Celtic are just not good enough for this level of football. And remember, this is Europe's second tier."

  14. Post update

    It might not have been a thriller, but seven goals mean the fans got their money's worth at least in Zagreb. The visiting support will, however, head back to Glasgow disappointed and wondering about their team's chances in the knock-out stages in light of this defeat.

  15. FULL-TIME

    Dinamo Zagreb 4-3 Celtic

  16. Post update

    Time is running out for Celtic as Dinamo are the ones pushing forward again in stoppage time.

  17. Get involved on the BBC Sport Scotland Facebook page

    Willie Mackie: "Can't be meaningless to 1000 travelling fans. Celtic must show them a bit of fight."

    Del Scott: "Ronny Deila hasn't got a clue. Can't believe Griffiths doesn't play before the likes of Wakaso, Scepovic."

  18. Get involved by texting 80295

    Ian in Inverness: "This is scary. What is gonna happen when Celtic meet a top team?" You mean, like Caley Thistle?

  19. Post update

    It is end to end stuff at the moment and Arijan Ademi sends a low drive past the far Celtic post.

  20. Post update

    Celtic could pull this out of the bag after all as substitute Liam Henderson's shot is turned over the crossbar by goalkeeper Eduardo after taking a looping deflection. From the corner, Stefan Scepovic heads just wide of the far post.

  21. Former Celtic midfielder Murdo MacLeod on BBC Radio Scotland

    "If Zabreb can get another, that's game, set and match, but if they don't Celtic will push everyone forward."

  22. Post update

    Celtic substitute Anthony Stokes tries a pot shot from 20 yards, but it is well held by goalkeeper Eduardo Carvalho.

  23. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 4-3 Celtic (Josip Pivaric, og)

    Celtic's period of possession pays dividends as Emilio Izaguirre's cut-back from the by-line is turned into his own net inside the penalty box by defender Josip Pivaric under pressure from Stefan Scepovic.

  24. Post update

    Celtic are pushing forward in an attempt to rescue the game - and some face. However, Dinamo are dealing with their opponents fairly comfortably.

  25. Get involved by texting 80295

    Tom and 20 others: "Relax all you Celtic critics! This is a meaningless game for Celtic, who are playing a B side because they have already qualified!"

    Jimmy, Edinburgh: "Celtic are awful! Not good enough."

    Paul Sturrock: "Have not got a clue about solid defending. Celtic are finished. They should withdraw from Europe to save humiliation!" No chance of that me thinks - and me also thinks it is not the Paul Sturrock who used to play for Dundee United and Scotland.

  31. Post update

    Celtic produce their first effort on target of the second half, but Callum McGregor's drive from 20 yards is easily held by goalkeeper Eduardo Carvalho.

  32. Post update

    A Kris Commons drive takes a deflection wide for a corner, but the Celtic attacking move fizzles out and another low drive from El Arbi Hillel Soudani forces Craig Gordon into a near-post save.

  33. Post update

    Whatever was said - or administered - in the home dressing-room at half time has worked and Dinamo have Celtic on the rack. One wonders what some of the better sides that await in the last 32 would do to this visiting defence.

  34. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 4-2 Celtic (Marko Pjaca)

    Marko Pjaca completes his hat trick with a blistering drive from 18 yards that leaves Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon clawing the air desperately then turning angrily towards his team-mates in frustration.

  35. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 3-2 Celtic (Marcelo Brozovic)

    Dinamo make their early second half pressure tell when a cross from Domagoj Antolic is superbly curled home first time by Marcelo Brozovic from 16 yards.

  36. Post update

    Two fine saves from Craig Gordon keep Celtic level. The goalkeeper shows quick reactions to block El Arbi Hillel Soudani's volley then dives to his near post to turn away Arijan Ademi's low effort.

  37. KICK-OFF

    The second half has kicked off in Zagreb. Will we have another goal fest, or will those suspect defences tighten up?

  39. Post update

    In the other Group D game, Salzburg, who have already qualified as winners, are 2-0 ahead against Astra in Austria. Marcel Sabitzer opened the scoring after nine minutes, with Kevin Kampl adding the second 11 minutes before the break.

  40. BBC Scotland's Tom English on Radio Scotland's Sportsound

    "The relevance of this game is that this Celtic defence is not good enough. They have conceded 17 goals in 11 and a half games in Europe this season. They have been a soft touch and Craig Gordon has papered over the tracks with his brilliance at times."

  41. Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner on BBC Radio Scotland

    "The first 20 minutes, Celtic weren't in it then they got back into the game and scored two goals and then go back into that horrendous bit of defending. It is down to two bad defences. Celtic don't have a defensive structure."

  42. Get involved #bbcscotfootball

    Sean Mclaughlin: "Four of the luckiest goals you will see in the competition."

    Alan David Duncan: "Two pub teams slogging it out in Zagreb, both equally mince." As a tee-total vegan, I'll be avoiding that pub and grub scene.

  43. HALF-TIME

    Dinamo Zagreb 2-2 Celtic

  44. Post update

    Marcelo Brozovic forces Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon to parry clear with a powerful drive from the edge of the penalty box as Dinamo take confidence from their equaliser.

  45. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 2-2 Celtic (Marko Pjaca)

    Celtic are looking casual at the back and, when Adam Matthews fails to clear, Marko Pjaca steps into the penalty box and grabs his second goal of the game after his low drive deflects off a defender and past goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

  46. Post update

    Croatia midfielder Marcelo Brozovic's free-kick is deflected wide and, from the corner, a flick from on-loan Manchester United striker Angelo Henríquez loops just over the Celtic crossbar.

  47. Get involved #bbcscotfootball

    Alan David Duncan: "I'd rather be lucky than good! Celtic's opening goal versus Zagreb got to be one of the flukiest bits of footballing nonsense ever!"

  48. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 1-2 Celtic (Stefan Scepovic)

    Kris Commons might have struck lucky with that opener, but the midfielder sets up the second goal with a trademark curling free-kick. His effort rebounds off the bar, is heading on by Nir Bitton and Stefan Scepovic is in the poacher's place a couple of yards out as he spins to turn the ball into the roof of the net.

  49. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 1-1 Celtic (Kris Commons)

    Celtic score a controversial equaliser. Dinamo dispute the award of a free-kick for a foul against Nir Bitton. Virgil van Dijk's free-kick deflects high off the defensive wall and drops towards Kris Commons in a suspiciously offside position and the midfielder looks to know little about it as it rebounds off his shoulder and into the corner of the net from 10 yards with the home side claiming a hand ball.

  50. Post update

    Callum McGregor bursts into the Dinamo penalty box, but there are no takers for his drilled cross as it whizzes across the face of the six-yard box.

  51. Post update

    That goal came seconds after Dinamo were forced to make a substitution, with Croatia Under-21 centre-half Jozo Simunovic replacing Jeremy Taravel after the Frenchman suffered that cut on his cheek earlier.

  52. GOAL

    Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 Celtic (Marko Pjaca)

    A shot from Arijan Ademi deflects into the path of Marko Pjaca and the 19-year-old Croatia winger turns inside Adam Matthews before curling the ball low past Craig Gordon into the far corner of the net from 12 yards.

  53. Post update

    El Arabi Hillel Soudani has the ball in the Celtic net, but the Algeria striker was in an offside position after a ricochet off a visiting player as he drove the ball low past Craig Gordon.

  54. Post update

    Dinamo defender Jeremy Taravel is forced off the field with blood pouring from a cut on his cheek after a challenge by Calum McGregor.

  55. Post update

    All the noise in Zagreb is coming from the Celtic fans and they are on their feet as a powerful drive from Kris Commons forces Dinamo goalkeeper Eduardo Carvalho to parry clear following the midfielder's own corner - the first of the match.

  56. Post update

    The first shot of the match comes from Calum McGregor, but the midfielder's effort from 22 yards is well over the bar. At least he had ambition, if misplaced.

  57. Post update

    Dinamo are on the attack immediately and a wild swipe of a clearance by Efe Ambrose gives the Celtic fans some nervous moments before looping into the arms of goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

  58. Get involved #bbcscotfootball

    Barry Booth: "Scepovic has to show he's got the skills to play and score or he'll be off!"

  59. KICK-OFF

    We're off in Zagreb with Celtic all in white apart from a gold stripe across their chest and a green band on each arm.

  60. Post update

    There aren't too many more fans in the stadium since that picture was taken unfortunately!

  62. Post update

    Ronny Deila said yesterday that his ambition in future rounds is to have a 60,000 capacity at Celtic Park - something that he has not experienced since taking over from Neil Lennon as manager in the summer.

    There will be a lot less in Stadion Maksimir tonight, with the predicted 1,000 travelling fans expected to make up about a quarter of the attendance.

    This is the sixth meeting between Dinamo Zagreb and Celtic, with home advantage having proved to be significant in all of the previous encounters.

    Dinamo have won both their home games, while Celtic have overcome the Croats three times in Glasgow.

    Will the trend continue in Zagreb tonight? Almost 15 minutes away from kick-off now.

  64. Post update

    Dinamo Zagreb are bottom of Group D, but they have only dropped two points in 18 outings in the Croatian top flight and stretched their lead at the top of the table to seven points with a 3-0 win over second-top Rijeka on Saturday.

    That was revenge for their only domestic defeat this season, losing 2-1 to the same opponents in the Croatian Super Cup in July.

    They will be looking for a win that will lift them above Astra should the Romanians lose away to group winners Salzburg.

  65. Post update

    It is Kris Commons' first start for Celtic since a 2-1 win over Dundee on 22 November.

    Wakaso and Stefan Scepovic are making their first starts since the 1-1 draw with Astra Giurgiu in the Europa League on 6 November.

  66. Post update

    The goal for Dinamo Zagreb, according to head coach Zoran Mamic, is to end a disappointing campaign on a high - as well as improve their own co-efficient for future campaigns.

    The former Bochum 1848 and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder points out that his side caused Celtic problems before losing 1-0 to a Kris Commons goal in the reverse fixture in Glasgow in October.

  67. Post update

    Although Celtic are already through, manager Ronny Delia has stressed that Celtic will still be motivated to claim victory as they look to improve their own European co-efficient - and that of other Scottish teams - for European competitions in years to come.

  68. LINE-UPS

    Dinamo Zagreb: Eduardo, Ivo Pinto, Sigali, Taravel, Pivaric, Soudani, Brozovic, Ademi, Antolic, Pjaca, Henriquez. Subs: Mikulic, Simunovic, Paulo Machado, Fernandes, Goncalo Santos, Vukojevic, Cop.

    Referee: Gediminas Mazeika (Lithuania)

  69. Post update

    Celtic make four changes from the team that defeated Motherwell 1-0 on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership, with the Glasgow side now three points clear at the top.

    With in-form striker John Guidetti again ineligible for the Europa League and Anthony Stokes dropped to the bench, Stefan Scepovic leads the attack, with a place also being found for Kris Commons.

    Calum McGregor and Wakaso come into midfield with captain Scott Brown and James Forrest having been rested.

    Going into tonight's games, 22 of the 32 teams who will contest the next round of the Europa League have already been decided.

    Joining Salzburg as group winners are Everton, Dinamo Moskva, Inter Milan and Fiorentina, while Tottenham Hotspur, Beşiktaş, Feyenoord, Napoli, Dynamo Kyiv, Legia Warszawa and Trabzonspor have qualified and still have a chance of winning their groups.

    PSV Eindhoven, like Celtic, have already been confirmed as runners-up in their sections.

    Dropping into the Europa League after failing to qualify for the Champions League knock-out stage are Liverpool, Olympiacos, Zenit, Anderlecht, Roma, Ajax, Sporting Lisbon, Athletic Bilbao. Olympiacos, Zenit, Sporting and Bilbao will be seeded in the draw along with the Europa League group winners.

    So who would Celtic fans - or neutrals for that matter - prefer to play in the last 32? Give us your thoughts.

  72. Post update

    Celtic, of course, have the luxury of knowing that they have already qualified for the round of 32 as runners-up behind Salzburg.

    And manager Ronny Deila has taken the opportunity to rest captain Scott Brown - the midfielder being in danger of a suspension should he pick up another yellow card - and winger James Forrest, who is still struggling for full fitness.

  73. Post update

    Welcome to tonight's live coverage of the final round of fixtures in the Europa League group stage, with our focus on Celtic's trip to Croatia to face Dinamo Zagreb.
