Along with Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, and Shakhtar Donetsk, Celtic will compete in Group F of the Champions League this season. While Los Blancos are the overwhelming favorites to win the group, second place looks open, and it is clear that Celtic Park will be rocking on Tuesday for this exciting match.
It will be interesting to see how the Scottish juggernauts fare in this year’s campaign after Celtic last advanced from their group in the European Cup in 2012–13, placing second in Group G before losing to Juventus in the round of 16.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is the current champion of the European Cup after defeating Liverpool the championship game last year.
Los Blancos, the current Spanish champions, have already won a trophy this year after defeating Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup at the beginning of last month.
With victories over Almeria, Celta Vigo, Espanyol, and Real Betis, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has also had a perfect start to the 2022–23 La Liga season. With 12 points, they are currently first in the standings.
Real Madrid will play four more games before the start of the international break, against Osasuna at the beginning of October, Celtic in the Champions League, RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga, Mallorca in the league, and Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
In the 1979–80 European Cup quarterfinals, Los Blancos faced Celtic. After losing in the first leg in Glasgow, they won in the return match in Madrid to advance to the semi–finals, where they were defeated by Hamburg.
