Champions League Live Blog: Manchester United v. Celtic

by Michael Cardillo

It's a battle of Britain this afternoon in the Champions League when Glasgow Celtic make the short trip down across the border to duel with defending competition champion Manchester United.

Celtic's Japenese international Shunsuke Nakamura is no stranger to United and Old Trafford, scoring on a freekick in the competition two years ago. Oh right, he did it again at Parkhead, too.

The Bhoys from Glasgow are without strikers Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Georgios Samras. United are pretty much fit.

The stat you need to know is Celtic is winless in its last 18 away Champions League matches, with one tie snuck in there. Ouch. United are tied on four points with Villareal to lead Group E. Celtic have only one point after two matches.

The live blog starts at 2:45 PM ET today. Join in the fun after the jump.
