Celtic take on Icelandic champions KR Reykjavik on Tuesday in their first UEFA Champions League qualifier. Here is how to watch!
Celtic are ready to welcome KR Reykjavik to Parkhead on Tuesday as they aim to advance to the next round of the UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds. The Hoops have had to postpone their last two matches due to an incident with leftback Boli Bolingoli. As such, Celtic have had the entire week to train, but questions of rust are naturally appearing.
We know that Albian Ajeti will be in the squad but he won’t start. We also know that striker Leigh Griffiths is out with a calf injury. That’ll leave Odsonne Edouard and Patryk Klimala as the main options up front. It seems unlikely that a two up front formation will take place with these new revelations.
Whatever may be the case, Hoops supporters will be glad to see their club back in action after the events of the last week. Here is how to watch the match on Tuesday as they begin their journey to the Champions League Group Stage.
Time and Venue:
Time: 19:45pm BST/ 15:45pm EST
Date: August 18th, 2020
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow, Scotland
Weather: 19C/66F. 80% chance of precipitation at kickoff, cloudy.
How to Watch:
Celtic v KR Reykjavik will be shown live in the United Kingdom exclusively on Premier Sports 1. Viewers can also watch the match on Premier Player via that stream.
The match will also be available for live stream on Celtic TV (subscription required) for all fans around the world. This is a huge development for this match as usually UK and Ireland subscribers are not allowed access to the live stream.
The Hoops have a few big matches ahead as they look to qualify for Europe as well as get back on track domestically. A win on Tuesday could be a huge morale boost to a club that could use one after the relatively negative press that surrounded the club thanks to Bolingoli.
The Celtic Bhoys Prediction: Celtic 3-1 KR Reykjavik
