The basis is to manage the opening encounter at Celtic Glasgow. “They like to attack and they won’t change anything. We are not afraid to defend because we are strong defensively. Last season it was just one of our keys to success,” the Real coach outlined. He is aware that the home team will drive a packed stadium. “The fans here are always amazing. I love when my team plays in this atmosphere,” he added.
Celtic midfielder Matt O’Riley can’t wait for tonight’s game. “Real is probably the biggest club in the world. It’s a dream come true,” he is looking forward to the duel against the historically most successful team in the Champions League.
The current leader of the Scottish top flight is determined to succeed despite the paper odds. “We want to impose our game on them. We hope it will bring success. If you don’t believe you can win, then what’s the point?” O’Riley pointed out. The duel starts at 21:00, as well as Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk, the remaining participants in Group F.

However, the highlight of Tuesday’s program is the Group H match between Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus. The Parisians, with a squad full of attacking stars, enter the new season of the Champions League again with the greatest ambitions. They have never in history lifted the eared cup above their heads. They were closest in the 2019/2020 season, when they lost to Bayern Munich in the final. Last year, eventual winner Real Madrid already put a stop to them in the round of 16.

It is said that it is important for PSG to face teams like Juventus in the first rounds. “Our supporters have high expectations. We have to perform well. The match comes at the right time to start the European adventure well and continue our good form,” he emphasized.
Old Lady coach Massimiliano Allegri says his side will go up against the number one favorites for overall triumph. “We have to play as a team, we must not give the opponent any space. When the pitch is open, they are very dangerous,” he outlined part of the tactic.
