Barcelona face Celtic in the club friendly in International Champions Cup. The sparring will be played on Saturday, July 30th.
Barcelona only starts their series of club friendly matches before the upcoming season and the game with Scottish champions will be the first one for Bluagrana. The team kept all their key players and found replacement for Dani Alves and Marc Bartra, who left the team after last season. Such skilled and young players as Lucas Digne, Samuel Umtiti, Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez have joined Jose Enrique’s team this summer to add depth to the squad.

Celtic, in turn, have already played several matches this summer. The team battles for the right to play in Champions League group stage and have already passed through second round, eliminating humble Lincoln Red Imps, 0-1, 3-0. The team also drew their away leg of third round against Astana, 1-1. Of course, the second leg against Astana has the highest priority for Rogers’ men while the sparring with the Catalans will be just another match to try their reserve players.
Barca beat Celtic pretty much every time the teams face one another. Of course, Barcelona are the favorites of the match and they would want to start the pre-season with confident win over convenient opponents who have no motivation to spent resources in this match. We should expect Barcelona alone score over 3 goals against Celtic, while the Scotts may reply with one or two goals.
Prediction for the match: Over 3.0 goals.
