Here's Everything You Need To Know About Man City's Trip To Glasgow On Wednesday

Celtic await...

Champs

Celtic v City, north of the border. Och aye, laddies, cannae wait.

Please... please never do that again. But yes, City are traveling north this week to take on Scottish champions Celtic in their second Champions League Group C game. 

How've we done so far?

Pep Guardiola's men hammered their first opponents Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 a fortnight ago. However, they remain second in the group on goal difference behind Barcelona who dismantled Celtic 7-0 in their meeting.  

7-0! Pah! Should be easy pickings for us then. 

While Brendan Rodgers' Celtic side were certainly no match for the might of Barca, the ex-Liverpool man can be satisfied with his start to life at Parkhead. 

He appears to have instilled self of enjoyment back into the club after the misery of the Ronny Deila years.

Plus, with the famous Parkhead atmosphere backing them all the way, write them off at your peril.

Yeah, okay... but, seriously though. We'll win, won't we?

Well, yeah. City will be overwhelming favourites to pick up the three points and claim an English record 11 straight victories at the start of a season.

A record you say?

Yep. A win will equal the record set by Bill Nicholson's Tottenham Hotspur side, who won all of their first 11 games at the start of the 1960/1961 season. They went on to win the league and FA Cup double. 

Crikey. Pep Guardiola seems to be the right man for the job.

And then some. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss has swept aside allcomers this season.  

Fans have been very impressed with the side's attacking performances with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne particularly standing out.

As well as that, Sergio Aguero just can't stop scoring at the moment so everything is falling into place nicely. 

Sounds like a wonderful evening's entertainment awaits. Where can I catch the game?

If you aren't traveling to Glasgow when you can watch the game on BT Sport 2 on Wednesday. Kick-off at 7.45pm.
