With players having recently returned from international duty, a selection of players were absent from their team’s line-ups.

Tom Rogic was absent from the team sheet as Celtic beat St. Johnstone 2-0 to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

The midfielder is set for a spell on the sidelines as he undergoes an operation on his knee as confirmed by manager Brendan Rodgers earlier this week.

Robbie Kruse was also not involved in Vfl Bochum’s 3-0 defeat to SV Sandhausen while Trent Sainsbury and Aziz Behich also didn’t line-up as PSV Eindhoven beat Fortuna Sittard 5-0.
