And Postecoglou says he believes Celtic could have pushed Real even more after conceding the first goal on 56 minutes. “I was a bit frustrated, ” he said. “In the context of who we were playing against, I understand that you are playing against one of the best teams in the world at the moment, maybe the best. And for us to be able to match them by playing our football was encouraging. “Looking back, the disappointing thing was, when we conceded, we conceded again quickly. There was no need to. If we had hung in the game, there’s always the chance to create again.

Now, with Ukrainian domestic football having returned, last season’s league leaders when hostilities brought an early halt to proceedings play their first “home” game in Europe, in neighbouring Poland. This is a very different Shakhtar side to the one that finished top of the table, with the vast majority of their foreign contingent having understandably taken advantage of a Fifa ruling that allowed them to seek moves elsewhere.

We will face a very tough match. ” Team newsCeltic centre-half Carl Starfelt is still absent after going off injured in the 4-0 victory over Rangers earlier this month, while midfielder James McCarthy misses out through illness.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Celtic live stream TV and kick off detailsFootball is almost back for fans of Celtic and Rangers, despite it feeling like an entire pre-season again – there is not long to go now. With Celtic having impressed largely in their first half against Real Madrid, they fell foul to a 3-0 loss on home turf as the squad that the Spanish champions had at their disposal slowly proved to be simply too strong for Ange Postecoglou’s men. Of course, there is no shame in admitting that with the Spanish giants set to walk the group with ease, but it is what Celtic can do in their other games against Shakhtar and Leipzig that really matter. For all of the plaudits Celtic earned from pundits in the season opener, a win in Warsaw would be a huge step forward – not only in their bid to qualify for the knockout rounds, but to show just how far the squad has come under Postecoglou over the last year or so. With Shakhtar having won 4-1 in Germany last time out, they evidently pose a threat that Celtic will do well to overcome.
