Celtic have won six of their last eight games including qualifiers at Paradise. They have only lost one game and drawn the other. Their away record is a different matter altogether. Celtic will have to do the business tonight and bring some sort of advantage to Valencia with them next week.
The teams have only met twice before in Europe, the La Liga side came out on top in both encounters. Despite the Spanish side showing a string of poor results this season, a win tonight for Celtic will be a massive scalp.
A brand new Celtic emerged in 2019, they play with a new freshness and energy that was only sporadic at the end of last year. The domestic stats since the new year are beyond impressive. The three new loan signings have all burst into first-team action and made an instant impact. The question tonight is if the Bhoys can bring that impressive form onto the European stage.
We reported earlier that Brendan Rodgers will only make one change to his 5-0 victors from last weekends Scottish Cup rout. It will be interesting to see if the new signings are ready to step it up another level. One thing is for sure, they are about to experience something tonight at Paradise that they have never experienced before.
Kick off from Celtic Park is 8 pm.
