Obviously, not a top pick for the match of the week but can’t also be neglected for one of the games to keep an eye on – It’s the UEFA Champions League and it’s Celtic vs Real Madrid in Group F.
Real Madrid’s title defence starts in Scotland and it comes against an old-time friend in Celtic.
The two teams’ last meeting came during the quarterfinal of the 1979/80 European Cup season, where Los Blancos advanced to the next stage with a 3-2 aggregate score.
In the first seven games of the 2022–23 season, Celtic has won every game, while Real Madrid has won its first five games, including four in La Liga.
Celtic’s 4-0 hammering of arch-rivals Rangers on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership helped the Hoops go five points ahead of the Gers at the top of the standings, which was a perfect warm-up for this game.
Madrid on the other hand had to end the perfect start to the season for Real Betis as they recorded a 2-1 victory in their first game at the Santiago Bernabeu this season.
Prior to the commencement of the international break, Madrid has four more games left to play: against Osasuna at the beginning of October. They will then play Mallorca and Atletico Madrid before playing Celtic and Leipzig in the Champions League.
