The date was Wednesday 28th September 2016, the time was 7.45pm, and the venue was Parkhead, home of Celtic Football Club. A Champions League Group C tie between unbeaten and runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City and Scotland’s greatest and most successful club were about to lock horns.
For weeks before the game, the press had labelled the match as the ‘Battle of Britain.’ But, did the tie live up to expectations?
As you can see, Pep Guardiola’s squad looks a little different from the one he can choose from now.
One point of interest was Manchester City’s loanee, Patrick Roberts who, by the Champions League player rules was allowed to play against his parent club.
Former City players Kolo Toure and Scott Sinclair also graced the field.
Best Atmosphere In Europe
Now defunct Blue Moon Rising TV presenters Steven and Paul captured their trip north of the border on camera.
Did you go to the match?
Whether you were at Celtic Park or you watched the game on TV, we’d love to hear if the game reached the pre-match hype.
I know it did for me. The game was a classic.
