Game info Real Madrid x Celtic


Celtic, which doesn't even have a chance to fight for relocation to the Europa League, will be Real Madrid's opponent, with a spot in the round of 16 of the Champions League, this Tuesday, November 2. The match, which will take place at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium in Madrid, is part of the agenda of the sixth – final – round of the group stage of the 2022/2023 version of the Champions League.

How does the 2022/2023 Champions League work?


UEFA, the organization that organizes the Champions League, has announced a profound change in the tournament. However, it will be valid only in the 2024/2025 season. In version 2022/2023, the regulation of the last editions was maintained. The tournament has 32 participants, divided into eight brackets in their group stage. They will face each other in a round-trip system. At the end of six rounds, the first two will advance in the dispute for the title. However, the third place will still have the chance to keep the international calendar in another competition. It will be relegated to the Europa League, where it will enter the round of 16 stages.


Real Madrid

Real Madrid entered the field to face Leipzig in the previous round with their spot in the round of 16 already guaranteed. He was beaten 3-2 by the German club at the Red Bull Arena without showing the same intensity he had been applying in the last matches. The result interrupted an undefeated streak that reached 20 clashes. The series started last season with 16 wins and four draws.


After taking their foot off the accelerator, the Merengues seem to have had problems getting back up to speed. On Sunday, October 30, with the Santiago Bernabéu stadium as the backdrop, they didn't get past the draw, 1-1, against Girona, until then in the relegation zone of LaLiga, in a duel for the twelfth round of the 2022/2023 version. Of the German Championship.


He maintained his lead and unbeaten record in the tournament by advancing to 32 points (ten wins and two draws). However, he saw the difference with Barcelona, in second place, reduced to one point. To maintain the lead in the Champions League without depending on any other result, Real Madrid needs to beat Celtic. Thus, in the round of 16, they will face a team that finishes in second place in their group.



Celtic will bid farewell to international tournaments this Wednesday. The opportunity I still had to maintain the hope of fighting for third place and, in this way, try to relocate to the Europa League in the second half of 2022/2023 ended with a draw, 1-1, in Glasgow, against Shakhtar Donetsk.


He managed to get the upper hand in the confrontation with the Ukrainians. In the 34th minute of the opening stage, Giakouakis made the net swing. In the second half, however, Mudryk changed in the 13th minute. The Scots even deserved a better result. Having stayed with the ball for 53% of the time, they created much more opportunities for submission (14 to 😎 and led the rate of shots on target (5 to 3).


On Sunday, October 30, Celtic managed to impose themselves against Livingston. Acting outside their domains, they scored 3-0 in the match for the thirteenth round of the 2022/2023 version of the Scottish Championship. It was much better in the game. He had the ball 75% of the time, created more than four times the number of opportunities to shoot (17-4), and led the statistic for shots in the right direction by a wide margin (6-2). thus reached 33 points (11 victories and one defeat). They lead the tournament with a four-point advantage compared to Rangers, who are in second place.
