As long as the players of FC Barcelona take the Champions League game this evening seriously and play somewhere close to their usual quality then Luis Enrique should be heading back to Spain with all three points in the bag. We need to do that as well or Barca could find themselves in the odd position of being runners up in the UCL group and facing a tougher task in the knockout stage.
The other game sees Man City travel to Germany to face Borussia Monchengladbach and after Pep Guardiola’s new team beat us in Manchester they could go top with a win tonight. The fact that the Scottish champions have beaten Barcelona before and with most of our players having recent experience of the atmosphere produced at Celtic Park by the home fans I think we should be okay.
Having said that we have not been in great form of late and any complacency could put us under pressure early. Surely with the likes of Messi, Neymar and Suarez on show we won’t mess this up will we?
