Celtic will certainly be tempted to take the tie to their hosts, knowing that an away goal could go a long way towards securing their passage to the last 16 of the competition.
They are aiming to reach that stage for the first time since 2003/04 when Martin O'Neill's side lost to Villarreal in the quarter-finals.
Rodgers kept faith with the same XI that started the first leg in Glasgow, hardly a surprise after he branded their performance at Celtic Park as "brilliant" in the immediate aftermath.
"Obviously the competition itself and European football is notoriously very hard now for ourselves, but I think we showed in the first leg how well we played".
The stadium's roof was closed over which was good news for the players and 50,492 supporters, including several hundred in green and white, in light of the sub-zero temperatures outside.
"They showed last week they can play".
"Our belief has always been there".

"They will be expected to go through over the two legs, so my mindset hasn't changed".
Scott Sinclair was named as a substitute for last week's first leg, but Brendan Rodgers may be tempted to field the former Manchester City player here.
Celtic bow out of the Europa League at the first knockout hurdle, and while the former Liverpool boss will console himself with the prospect of another domestic treble, his side have once again fallen short of making a significant impact on the continent.
And with that in mind, he is looking for his side to be clever in how they might take advantage.
Celtic made seven changes at the weekend as they were held to a goalless draw by St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership in preparation for the trip to Russian Federation, with only McGregor, Kouassi, Dorus de Vries and Kristoffer Ajer featuring in both games. We're too deep and have to press the guy who was shooting.
"Decent going forward, but a poor defender, particularly like that when boys run off him at the back post".
