Real Madrid will face Celtic to begin the defence of their UEFA Champions League crown tonight (Tuesday).
Ange Postecoglou will be hoping for momentum against the European champions after winning all of their seven games this campaign.
This would be Celtic’s first UEFA Champions League game since they finished third in the 2017-18 group stages.
While the Bhoys have maintained their stature in Scotland, they must grasp their European endeavours.
With Real Madrid favorites to top this group, Celtic can hope to battle for the second spot with the likes of RB Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk.
With Carlo Ancelotti’s side looking like a formidable force this season, they will enter the Champions League as favourites.
Los Blancos have already won European silverware this season by beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup, although they will be eager to get their hands on the big prize.
Ancelotti will know a solid start will be imperative for their chances, as topping the group will be of utmost priority.
