The 40-time Cup winners won the Scottish Championship for the 52nd time last season. Traditionally, intrigue remained until the final rounds, but that did not stop the Celtic side from taking a four-point lead over Rangers to win the Premiership.
Over the summer, Diogo Jota of Benfica (€7.3m), Cameron Carter-Vickers of Tottenham (€7m) and two players, Oliver Abildgaard and Sead Hakshabanovic, joined the squad. The start to the new championship was brilliant – six wins out of a possible six, with the Whites and Greens netting 25 times.
Ange Postecoglou’s side beat Dundee United 9-0 in the last two rounds and secured a vital win in the Glasgow derby, which ended with a 4-0 win for Celtic. Ideguchi, who has a muscular injury, will not be able to play today.
Celtic possible starting lineup: Hart; Juranovic, Carter-Vickers, Jenz, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Abada, Giakoumakis, Jota.
Real Madrid performed well in the Champions League last season, making a solid run through the group stage before knocking PSG and Chelsea out of the competition. In the final, Carlo Ancelotti’s men beat Liverpool in regulation time to win Europe’s top club title for the 14th time. Also, the team became the 35th time La Liga champions, having recorded 26 wins, eight draws, or 86 points in total.
The Spanish Super Cup victory is a welcome addition to the titles won. The summer saw the arrival of Monaco holding midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni, who was paid €80m, and Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger, who moved as a free agent. There have been no losses to start the new season, with four wins in four games and first place after a 2-1 success against Betis in the last round.
Last season’s success brought everyone who played for the team a handsome cash bonus of 900000 euros, which isn’t a bad motivation for the new season. Tonight, Odriozola and Vallejo, who are not yet in form, will not be able to play.
Real Madrid’s possible starting lineup: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.
