Football: Celtic face motivated Barcelona with point to prove
CANNING MADRID, (AFP) - Barcelona welcome Celtic to the Camp Nou on Wednesday, Dec 11, 2013, still needing a point to mathematically ensure they finish top of Champions League Group H.
The Catalans appeared to be cruising to first place and the benefit of having the second-leg of their last 16 tie at home having beaten AC Milan 3-1 to qualify on matchday four.
However, a 2-1 defeat away to Ajax in their last European outing leaves them just two points clear of Milan.
Defeat in Amsterdam was followed by another loss, this time on the domestic front, as Athletic Bilbao ended Barca's 26-game unbeaten run in La Liga five days later.
