Barca’s ‘MSN’ reunited for Celtic clash


Barcelona (AFP) – Barcelona boss Luis Enrique named star trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar together in his starting line-up for the first time in four months for Celtic’s visit to the Camp Nou on Tuesday.

Neymar missed Barca’s start to the campaign due to his duties in winning Olympic gold with Brazil, whilst Messi and Suarez were benched for Barca’s shock 2-1 defeat to Alaves on Saturday after their exertions in South American World Cup qualifying.

Enrique makes eight changes in all from the side that started against Alaves with Marc-Andre ter Stegen fit to return in goal, whilst Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Sergi Roberto return to the defence.

Andre Gomes is handed his European debut in midfield with Andres Iniesta left on the bench.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers made two changes from the side that thrashed Glasgow rivals Rangers 5-1 on Saturday as the former Liverpool boss switched to a back five.

Costa Rican international Cristian Gamboa makes his debut at right-back and Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts comes into midfield with Tom Rogic and James Forrest dropping out.

    I knew there was a reason that the football gods and UEFA let this Celtic side is the CL this season. They will be officially declared the worst team in the history of the competition when they finish with 0:72 goal difference after 6 games.

    They are truly worse than the fictional team of Harchester united! Laughing stock, no more no less…Brenda in action!
