Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and team news for Europa League Group G clash

CELTIC host Hungarian side Ferencvaros as they target their first points of the Europa League group stage today.

It’s been a poor start to the competition for the Hoops, who have crashed to defeat against Bayer Leverkusen and Real Betis.

The visitors are also without a point in Group G, with victory for either side keeping their hopes of qualification alive.

When is Celtic vs Ferencvaros?

  • This Europa League clash will be held on Tuesday, October 19.
  • Kick-off is at 3.30pm.

The match is being held on a Tuesday due to COP26 taking place in Glasgow in November.

Neither Celtic or Rangers will be allowed to play at home on match day four of the competition.

But because Rangers’ game with Brondby is all set for Ibrox on Thursday, Celtic’s game will now take place on the Tuesday as the sides cannot be at home on the same day.

The game will kick-off at 3.30pm so it does not clash with the Champions League matches elsewhere.
