Cappielow to host Celtic versus Barcelona today

Cappielow will play host to Celtic today as they welcome Barcelona’s Under-19s to Scotland for their third and final home fixture in Group C of their UEFA Youth League campaign.

Tommy McIntyre’s squad lost 4-0 to Manchester City and drew 1-1 with Borussia Monchengladbach here in Greenock, while they also hosted the Catalan club on 1 October 2013.

Barca ran out 2-1 winners, a match in which future Morton loan players Stuart Findlay, Jamie Lindsay, Paul McMullan and Denny Johnstone all participated.

Kick-off in today’s meeting is 2pm and admission is £5 for adults and £2 for children under-16.
