Match Preview : Celtic vs Manchester City

Having been hit for seven in Barcelona, Celtic will hope for a much stronger showing in front of their home support when Manchester City visit Parkhead but they will need to attack the visitors, which will be dangerous.

City got off to a fine start to their Champions League campaign and have maintained a 100% record under Pep Guardiola to now, playing some excellent football along the way.

The away side simply has far too much firepower for a weak Celtic defence, though the hosts do have the potential to cause some problems of their own at the other end. Naija and Bet
