'Difficult to sleep': Chris Sutton sends early morning tweet ahead of Celtic vs Real Madrid tonight
It’s a huge day for Celtic as they open their Champions League group stage campaign this evening.
They couldn’t have asked for a bigger game to begin their journey in Europe.
The current holders Real Madrid visit Celtic Park tonight for the first time in a competitive game since 1980.
The Scottish champions ran out 2-0 winners that day, and Celtic fans will certainly be hoping for a repeat of that result.
Sutton said: “It’s difficult to sleep with Celtic playing Real Madrid tonight in the Champions League…”
Sutton excited for Celtic match
The Scottish pundit’s tweet received plenty of replies from Celtic fans echoing his thoughts.
Celtic haven’t been in the group stages of the Champions League since 2017.
Their last four Champions League campaigns have all disappointedly ended in the qualifying stages.
However, Celtic were able to bypass those matches this season, and automatically reached the group stages.
Sutton has also made an ambitious prediction going into Celtic’s match against Real Madrid.
Celtic’s players will need to be at their very best to compete against Real Madrid tonight.
The electric atmosphere of Celtic Park is also going to be vital to The Bhoys’ hope of getting a result.
However, Sutton and thousands of Celtic fans are going to be extremely excited about this evening’s match.
And there’s no doubt that the stadium will be rocking once the famous Champions League anthem plays out around the ground.
