Celtic will hope to sign off their Champions League campaign with a memorable night in the Bernabeu as they take on Real Madrid tonight.
Celtic are already out of Europe and have just picked up two points from their five games so far, although they gave the holders a test in the reverse fixture at Parkhead.
Real Madrid have yet to seal top spot following their defeat in Leipzig last week, but Celtic will be looking to pull off an upset against the 14-time European champions.
“Everyone at the club has really been looking forward to this game,” said the Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou. There’s history between Celtic and Real. (Alfredo) Di Stefano’s testimonial was between the two clubs and we haven’t played since then so we’re very proud to be here at the Bernabeu playing against one of the world’s greatest teams. Hopefully it will be memorable for everyone including our supporters.”
