    Remember the last time we faced them, that was the noisiest I've ever heard Celtic Park at them pks, was deafening.

    Depends what yer scene is. Celtic pubs in town will start filling up from about 4pm.
    St Vincent’s/Malones/Kitty O’Shea’s and Graces are a good shout if yer looking for a wee sing song before the game.

    Anyone seen Valencia play lately? Is everything still going through Parejo or has Kondogbia started to take some of the pressure?

    We should have the extra man in Midfield either way and if we can stop Parejo playing the way he likes we will win.

    I have seen a lot of them this season and Parejo is very much the main man for them in midfield and they really have great attacking options even if Mina is out they still have Gameiro who I rate highly and Rodrigo who is very good. The biggest weakness for me is how bad they are at defending corners it has been a real issue for them most of the season.

    We are kind of useless at set pieces aswell. Boyata may score though

    All about the collective
    Dont think rodrigo or mina have travelled. Soler , gameiro and guedes all have tho. No gaya or paulista either. So there in a similar position missing their first choice centre half and left back.

    I think it will be will be a back four of Piccini, Diakhaby, Garay and Lato for them pretty strong defence. With Neto behind them they will be hard to break down. Hopefully Forrest and Burke play as both will have the beating of Garay and Lato on the left side of there defence.

    If there are missing Rodrgo as well as Mina up top that certainly is good for us as those 2 with Gamerio off the bench are very good.

    Rodrigo has been dug * this season, but Gaya is a a massive loss he is basically their Tierney.

    Also, a real issue for Celtic to score from corners, we are useless at them verging on the disgraceful.

    We might play some better football now , but Martin O'Neills teams were all geared towards free kicks and corners, we had bobo,Mjallby,Sutton,Larsson and Hartson who could all header a ball deadly.

    Now non existent when was the last time a defender scored for us from the head, or even a forward we play on the ground more even taking corners short. cos we dont have those type of players. Boyata and Benkovic might get the odd one.

    A well-delivered ball whipped into the box is always dangerous we bit of space you could be two foot tall.....O'Neil era a corner was a big advantage, tense late in games as like you mention so many could get on the end of it , now it's the same as a throw-in

    There will be a minutes silence at the match in remembrance of Emiliano Sala.
    UEFA declared that ALL CL and EL matches this week will have a minutes silence and have given every club the option to have their players wear black armbands as well.

    If we had a quality set piece taker we’d score more but no one in the team can get the ball past the first man

    He has 4 goals in La Liga, compared to last season I’d say he’s been *.

    Can't see Guedes being fit enough to start either..
