CELTIC face Atletico Madrid in their fourth Champions League Group E encounter in the Metropolitano Stadium tonight.

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for better luck than he experienced on his last visit to Spain as Celtic manager on February 21 2019.

The Hoops were already trailing 2-0 following a disappointing first leg at Parkhead and were playing well until on-loan Borussia Dortmund right-back Jeremy Toljan was ordered off after his second booking eight minutes before the interval.

Rodgers’ men conceded in the 70th minute and went out on a 3-0 aggregate.
