Big game for the bhoy’s tonight when we take on Atletico Madrid who are without doubt a top side but not unbeatable. Celtic showed enough in the second half of the first game to show they are not the best at defending and they can be panicked by quick inter passing when attacked.
The truth is we started poorly in Madrid and as usual shot our selves in the foot by conceding a cheap goal. Overall we were a wee bit unfortunate as I feel we done enough to at get a draw.
Well it’s been a while. Twenty days since the Rennes game to be exact and the Bhoys are finally playing at home again. This game was moved as a result of Celtic playing in the Dublin Super cup and with no disrespect to Dunfermline this is a game we should win.
European football returns to Celtic Park tonight and there are two ways of looking at that.
The first way is that this game and the other Europa League ties are bonus games in a tournament that we won’t win therefore the manager, fans and players should see it as such and chill out a bit. It’s a great distraction from the SPL, which gives the players and the coaching team a chance to test themselves against a higher level of opposition than they would normally face in the SPL.
