The moment of Champions League reckoning has arrived for Celtic.

Can Brendan Rodgers' men scratch their 10-year itch and end the long wait for a group stage home win?

It's Matchday Three and the Scottish champions once again are pitting their wits against old adversaries Atletico Madrid.

It's 49 years since the infamous match-up between the sides in the first leg of the European Cup semi-final which ended in a goalless draw at Parkhead and saw three visiting players sent. The La Liga outfit triumphed 2-0 in the return to advance to the final where they lost to Bayern Munich.

The scars and the wounds from nearly five decades ago will never heal in Glasgow's East End.

Celtic need no greater incentive to win this encounter and gain some revenge after their opponents decided to sport a commemorative red kit in homage to the Atletico Madrid class of 1974.

That was then but this is now and Rodgers has urged is side to be educated in their approach against Diego Simeone's star-studded Atletico team.

Rodgers said: "We know the task as we are playing against one of the best teams in the world. They are a fantastic team. We don't have to be the best team in the world to win. We just need to educate our pressure and play well and ride our luck as well.

"We play every game to win. Your pressure always has to be educated. We want to be intense. We have to press the game with an intelligence as well because they have top-level players."

Meanwhile Greg Taylor also called for Celtic to create their own history as a win for the home side would blow the Group E table wide open.

Taylor said: "The atmosphere here on a Champions League night is not like many other stadiums in the world. We want to give the fans something that they can enjoy. As a squad of players, we want to create our own history. We did that domestically last season, but itโ€™s now about trying to do it in Europe."
