Spanish side Valencia CF, who come into their UEFA Europa League Round of 32 match sitting eighth on the domestic La Liga table, also come in with a chip on their shoulder feeling that if not for a missed referee's decision, as the Guardian reported, it would be them rather than Manchester United continuing in the Champions League. But the missed handball call against United's Marouane Fellaini was indeed missed, and Valencia lost their match against Man U dropping into third place and, as a result, into the Europa League. With their position on the La Liga table, winning the second-tier European competition is likely Valencia's best shot at returning to the Champions League, and they start that project with a trip to Scotland where they face Celtic FC in a game that will livestream from Glasgow.

Celtic, the defending, 49-time Scottish champions, appear well on their way to an eighth consecutive Premiership championship this season. But as the BBC reports, the iconic Glasgow side has had two shots at getting past the Europa League Round of 32, only to come up short each time, in 2015 and again in 2018.
"It's about respecting that the opponent is a good side," Celtic Coach Brendan Rogers said, ahead of the Valencia matchup, according to Sky Sports. "It's up to us to ensure we go and deliver a game and an intensity in our game that gives the supporters that hope."
