    But Real are the European champions, having beaten Liverpool in last season’s final in Paris to claim their 14th title.

    Celtic do have previous history of beating big Spanish sides in the competition, famously defeating Lionel Messi’s Barcelona in 2012.

    But they’ve got it all to do at Parkhead on Tuesday evening.

    Real will be laser-focused on getting their 2022/23 European campaign off the perfect start when they visit Glasgow.

    Kyogo Furuhashi won’t be availble to play after coming off in the win over Rangers with a shoulder injury.

    Carl Starfelt also came off during the game with a knee problem, so Mortiz Jenz could come into the side to replace him.

    Real Madrid have a largely fit side, but Carlo Ancelotti could make a change or two, following their win over Real Betis at the weekend.

    But Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr will spearhead Los Blancos’ attack at Parkhead.
