CONFIRMED: Celtic line-up – The 11 men tasked with beating Barcelona

Here is the Celtic line-up for this evening’s match against Barcelona:

Starting XI: Forster, Lustig, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Izaguirre, Matthews, Brown, Mulgrew, Samaras, Commons, Stokes

Subs: Zaluska, Biton, Balde, Rogic, Pukki, Kayal, Forrest

The question on everyone’s lips as Celtic prepare for this evening’s Champions League group match against Barcelona is, quite simply, can history repeat itself?

And while the pessimists will declare that impossible, football is not a place for such people; it is an arena for optimists and dreamers.

Barcelona go into this evening’s match without Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano, Jordi Alba and Carles Puyol. But they are still expected to have more than enough to overcome a Celtic side who must avoid defeat this evening following their 2-0 loss to AC Milan on match-day one.

But Neil Lennon’s team have the 12th man on their side, and the memories of a glorious night last November. So expect, well, anything…

What do you think the result will be this evening?
