Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of the UEFA Champions League Group H tie between Celtic and Barcelona at Celtic Park.
 
Former Celtic and current Scotland manager Gordon Strachan joins Roy Keane and Lee Dixon with Adrian in the studio as Neil Lennon’s side bid to reproduce last season's famous 2-1 victory over the Catalan giants.
 
The Bhoys go into the game following a group match against AC Milan at the San Siro, having overcome Shakhter Karagandy in the Champions League play-off round. Irish striker Anthony Stokes’s goal-scoring start to the season and deadline day signing Teemu Pukki may prove key to the team’s hopes in this tie.
 
Meanwhile Barcelona made a winning start to their campaign in La Liga, with talisman Lionel Messi and new signing Neymar already off the mark. They will be hoping to improve on their 7-0 aggregate Champions League semi-final defeat by Bayern Munich last season.
 
Commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
