Celtic will play their first competitive game this evening when Midtjylland line up at Celtic Park.
The club are used to playing very early qualifiers, despite that, they are wildly under prepared for the game.
Ange Postecoglou has made the honest admission his players fitness isn’t where it needs to be for such a pivotal game. Between that, injuries and our lack of new players in the squad, it’s going to be a tough night for the Hoops.
A backs against the wall mentality is absolutely vital. The bhoys can use the adversity to go out and show what they can do, prove doubters wrong and get Celtic’s season off to a flyer.
There will be 9000 fans inside the ground this evening. The rest of us will be watching from home or in bars.
Here’s all the information you need for to watch the game this evening:
What time is kick off?
Where can I watch?
The game is live on the Celtic pass for season ticket holders. It will also be available to Celtic TV subscribers outside the UK and Ireland.
If you don’t have either, you can still watch on Premier Sports. This will require a subscription if you don’t have one already.
The game will be officiated by Swiss referee Sandro Schärer, flanked by his compatriots Stephane De Almedia, Bekim Zojag and a Luca Piccolo. You can read more about the referee here.
Is the game over two legs?
Yes, unlike last season, the game will be contested over two legs; both home and away.
Who is registered in Celtic’s Euro squad?
You can find the whole squad on the UEFA website
Note: Kristoffer Ajer and Olivier Ntcham are not included in the squad.
- Erik Sviatchenko returns to Celtic Park for the first time since leaving the club. It will be interesting to see how he’s developed since his departure.
- Celtic are without Mikey Johnstone and Karamoko Dembele this evening. James Forrest has not trained a lot but could be thrown in – the Celtic squad is thin.
- Who will Ange go with as his number one? – It looks like it will be Barkas but Bain and Barkas have shared equal time in the past couple of weeks.
