Welcome back to our lives, UEFA Champions League! Manchester City will look to stay perfect this season and in the group stage with a visit to Celtic Park for a date with Scottish champions Celtic FC. This will not be an easy game, but the Citizens are overwhelming favorites.
Pep Guardiola likes to be the favorite, since it obligates him to stick to his style even more and be the team on the front foot for 90 minutes. His style of play has turned the Sky Blues into one of the best in Europe in this early season, but every game is another step in the team's evolution.
Celtic present a tough challenge. Every road trip in the Champions League is difficult, and the Celtic Park atmosphere will be amazing. City are without Kevin De Bruyne, and need to find a way to replace him with a strong team performance.
This should be fun.
