The game represents the sixth time in 12 years that the two clubs have battled it out in Glasgow, with three victories for the visitors against two Celtic wins in that time.

As the players left Catalan to make the trip to Glasgow, Barcelona tweeted about the Celtic Park atmosphere, saying their players have always been “impressed”.

Included in the tweet was a link to an article on the official website, where they’ve collated quotes from a few Barca stars, including Lionel Messi.

The legendary attacker said in 2013: “I’ve been fortunate to play in some great stadiums in Europe with Barcelona but none compare to Celtic.”
