As those early games kick off, here’s a look ahead to the later matches. Good to see Kevin Keegan still getting as excitable as ever.

And Pep having a good old whinge.

Half-time scores from those early matches:

Barcelona 2-0 Shakhtar
Feyenoord 2-0 Lazio
Fermín López scored a beauty for Barça’s second. Next talent off the production line? Lazio playing in a raucous old atmosphere in Rotterdam.

Preamble

After last night’s drama, there’s the chance of more in the last set of matches before the group stages turn for home. There’s some history on the line, too, since any Celtic FC fan will have bad memories of Atletico Madrid, 49 years ago, and the hacking that Jinky Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish and the rest got from an Atleti team that finished with eight men. That Atleti have decided to wear the same strip as all those years ago seems provocative, to say the least. Let’s hope there’s not more of the same…who are we kidding here? If it ends up in a ruck and nobody gets seriously hurt these are scenes we probably want to see.

To set aside that, of the 8pm kick-off times, Newcastle v Borussia Dortmund should see the stadium seethe with atmosphere, while PSG v Milan in the other game in that group has pivotal look, too.

Manchester City to put Young Boys to the slaughter? That seems likely, and in their group, RB Leipzig and Red Star Belgrade are competing for second place, the Europa League.

A couple of early kick-offs, Barcelona v Shakhtar and Feyenoord v Lazio will have an affect on the games at Celtic and between Porto and Antwerp.
