Real Madrid, the winner of the Champions League 2021-22, will begin its title defence against Celtic at the Celtic Park Stadium in Glasgow on Tuesday.

Real – the record winner of the UEFA Champions League – may come into the match as the stronger team on paper, but it will be cautious not to be complacent – something that led to its surprise upset to FC Sheriff in the Group stage last year.

Carlos Ancelotti, the most successful manager in the history of this tournament, will look to extend his success further, given he has announced he would move on from football management in 2024.

Los Blancos sits on top of the La Liga table with 12 points from four games with a 100 per cent win record.

Celtic, on the other hand, is enjoying its purple patch in the Scottish Premiership as well. It has not played in UCL since 2017-18.

The defending league champion – and the second most successful side ever in the league – also leads the table with 18 points with a cent per cent win rate.
