How to watch Celtic vs Real Madrid: The Champions League is back with a bang as the holders meet the first ever British winners of the European Cup. Here’s how you can live stream Celtic vs Real Madrid.

Glasgow Celtic are back in the Champions League group stages and, for the Scottish Champions, the games don’t get any bigger than hosting Real Madrid at Parkhead on the first night of this season’s group stages.

Real Madrid are once again the holders of the Champions League after defeating Liverpool 1-0 in May in Paris. The 14 times holders will fancy their chances of retaining the trophy in 2022/23. Beyond Celtic, they’ll face RB Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk in Group F.

For the Glasgow club, it represents a return to the elite, having automatically qualified for the group stages this time around. The Hoops have enjoyed some spectacular European nights, not least the one 55 years ago in 1967 when Jock Stein’s side beat Inter Milan to become the first British club to raise ol’ Big Ears.

The first night of Champions League action of the season also sees Chelsea and Man City in action, while PSG host Juventus in the evening’s glamour tie. Liverpool and Tottenham get their campaigns underway on Wednesday night.
