Neil Lennon’s side have nothing to play for after winning just one of their five games so far but with pride at stake the Northern Irishman will be keen to his side put on a good show, telling reporters “We have played very well against them over the three games,” he said.

“I am just hoping we can continue that and it doesn’t just fade away in the last game.”

Thankfully that should not be a problem as the club have been on-song domestically in recent weeks.

They currently sit seven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premier League and have scored 12 goals in their last two games, including smashing seven past Hearts in the Scottish Cup.

In their most recent clash a hat- trick from Kris Common helped the club to a 5-0 away win over Motherwell to make it 17 games without a defeat in Scotland this season.

The defending Scottish Champions will travel to the Nou Camp without the suspended Emilio Izaguirre while Beram Kayal, Adam Matthews and Steven Mouyokolo all miss out through injury.

Scott Brown and Nir Biton return following suspension.

While Celtic may have little to play for there is still plenty at stake for Barcelona with the La Liga leaders searching for the point that would be assure them of top spot in the group.

After a stunning 20 game unbeaten start to the season Barcelona have stuttered in recent weeks losing 2-1 to Ajax in their last Champions league clash before following that up with a first domestic loss at the hands of Atletico Bilbao.

Order was restored last Friday however when the club beat Cartagena 4-1 in the Copa del Rey with Pedro, Cesc and young Cameroon starlet Jean Dongou, on his debut, all scoring.

Barcelona will once again be without the injured Lionel Messi, Daniel Alves and Victor Valdes although Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta and Cristian Tello could feature after taking part in training on Monday.
