With the 2022/23 Champions League group stage starting tonight, Celtic FC face a difficult task in welcoming reigning champions Real Madrid to Scotland.

Ange Postecoglou’s side, currently at the top of the Premier League with a 100 per cent record and having conceded just one goal, will nonetheless know they need to be in top form to thrive against Los Blancos. However, Celtic couldn’t have warmed up better for this clash than by winning the Old Firm Derby 4-0 at the weekend, so spirits will be high.

As for Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti’s side started their La Liga season in a similarly impressive manner with four wins from four, beating Real Betis 2-1 at the weekend. The likes of Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Vinicius Jr. will again play key roles this season, although Casemiro is a notable absence from last year’s side following his departure to Manchester United.

Follow the build-up and all the action from Celtic vs Real Madrid live below:

Celtic vs Real Madrid last

Can Real Madrid defend their title again this season? There is still a long way to go and of course the half-time break for the World Cup could still disrupt and dictate a lot in the second half of the season.

The group stage is all about getting the job done across the six games and making sure you’re in there in the knockout rounds.

Previous season for these teams:

It’s six of six Premiership wins for the leaders after beating Aberdeen, Ross Co, Kilmarnock, Hearts, Dundee United and Rangers in the Old Firm Derby at the weekend. They also beat Ross County in the League Cup – conceding just two goals in that run.

Almeria, Celta Vigo, Espanyol and Real Betis have all been defeated by the reigning LaLiga champions, but they have also won titles. At the start of the season, Real beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the Uefa Super Cup.

Excitement in the Champions League group stage is at an all-time low as financial differences widen

The end of the Champions League group stage can’t come soon enough as it’s impossible not to feel like this season will be decided quickly, predictably. That’s due to much more than the World Cup dictating this penultimate edition of the format, set to be changed in 2024 and to be completed in the first week of November.

While there are always more surprise results than people expect, most superclubs have very forgiving routes to their traditional place in the last 16. Real Madrid, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Liverpool and even Tottenham Hotspur should all do it get through easily.

Group C – with Bayern Munich, Barcelona, ​​Internazionale and the return of Robert Lewandowski to Allianz – is the only group that could be described as an old-fashioned ‘group of death’. That the competition used to be full of such challenges is an old point, but that makes it all the more relevant. It looks like it’s never been this bad. No wonder the main intrigue surrounding this week’s Istanbul draw was the middle-tier clubs urging to start recovering the prize money.

That suggests that none of this is the fault of the group stage as a format, but rather the financial inequality that Uefa and those very competition have encouraged and monitored.

Even some of the better individual lights are attractive precisely because they are based on this economic gap, writes Miguel Delaney.

Celtic and Rangers are looking to provide the much-needed emotional center in the Champions League group stage

In recent days, Ange Postecoglou has drilled his players in a typically expansive game plan, but everything has received a new electricity. On Tuesday night, Celtic will not just play their normal game and refuse to change for anyone. It will instead be a night where the unique vibe blends with the usual approach, amplifies it and just goes with the spirit of adventure.

You only have to walk around Glasgow this week to get a sense of what the Champions League is supposed to be about. The city that hosted one of the first truly mythical finals of the old European Cup, when Real Madrid defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 7-3 at Hampden Park in 1960, now awaits the return of the 14-time champions with rare excitement. Across the city, Rangers players have been playing the Champions League theme on their phones as they head off to Ajax, but that’s really all in anticipation of things booming around Ibrox for next Tuesday’s visit to Napoli.

This is how the competition should feel. One of the first Champions League cities is fittingly the emotional center of this group stage.

Miguel Delaney looks back on the opening of the Champions League group stage:

Celtic vs. Real Madrid: Kyogo Furuhashi fit for European champion

Celtic striker Kyogo Furuhashi is available for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Real Madrid but Carl Starfelt will be absent.

Japan striker Furuhashi went off five minutes into Saturday’s Celtic 4-0 win over Rangers after injuring his shoulder during a challenge with John Lundstram.

However, he was back on the training ground in Lennoxtown on Monday morning and will be battling for a place in the starting XI with his replacement Giorgos Giakoumakis on Saturday.

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou said: “Kyogo injured his shoulder and was training this morning. He looked OK, so he’s available.

“I haven’t made a decision yet on whether he’s going to play or not, but in terms of his training and everything in training, he’s been fine.”

Starfelt retired early in the second half of Saturday’s derby with knee problems. Moritz Jenz replaced the Swedish centre-back on his fifth appearance of the season.

Postecoglou added: “We didn’t have an accurate diagnosis. It’s nothing too serious, but it will probably keep him away for a few weeks.”
