What channel is Celtic v Shakhtar Donetsk on? Kick-off time, TV station, live stream details

Celtic host Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday knowing that only a victory will keep alive their slim hopes of maintaining European football beyond Christmas.

Ange Postecoglou’s side can no longer qualify for the last 16 of the tournament after back-to-back defeats to RB Leipzig left them bottom of Group F with just one point from their opening four fixtures.

The Hoops can still claim the consolation prize of a Europa League place for finishing third in the group but will need to take at least four points from their remaining two matches at home to Shakhtar this week and away to Real Madrid next week.

Celtic claimed their solitary point against the Ukrainians with a 1-1 draw in Warsaw last month after Reo Hatate’s opener was cancelled out by Mykhaylo Mudryk’s equaliser, with missed chances the story of the night for the Scottish champions.
