Welcome to the European season, Barcelona! The Blaugrana kick off their Champions League campaign with the first group stage match against Celtic FC at Camp Nou. After an embarrassing loss to Alavés last Saturday, it's time to play well and get a victory today.
The Camp Nou is ready, and beautiful as always...

... And the lineups are out!
Barcelona starting lineup (4-3-3):
Ter Stegen | Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Alba | Busquets, Rakitic, Gomes | Messi, Suárez, Neymar
Substitutes from: Masip, Mascherano, Digne, Rafinha, Iniesta, Arda, Alcácer
Coach: Luis Enrique

Celtic starting lineup (5-4-1):
De Vries | Gamboa, Lustig, Touré, Sviatchenko, Tierney | Roberts, Brown, Bitton, Sinclair | Dembélé
Substitutes from: Gordon, Izaguirre, Armstrong, Rogic, O'Connell, McGregor, Forrest
Coach: Brendan Rodgers
Luis Enrique makes a surprise selection with André Gomes starting in place of captain Andrés Iniesta, who will be carefully treated after returning from injury. Sammy Umtiti is once again Gerard Piqué's partner, with Ter Stegen starting on goal and the 'MSN' trio back together up front. Brendan Rodgers obviously comes to Camp Nou to defend, but he does have some fast and dangerous players on the pitch, especially Patrick Roberts and Moussa Dembélé.
It's time to win, play well and prove why Barça are still really damn good.
VISCA EL BARÇA!
