Manchester City vs. Celtic 2016 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch Champions League online

Things aren't quite working for Brendan Rodgers and Celtic, and that's a bad thing with a visit from Pep Guardiola and undefeated Manchester City looming.

The start to the season keeps getting better and better for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, and despite the loss of key playmaker Kevin De Bruyne to injury, the feeling among the fan base is that they can still easily earn their second win in their Champions League group, despite having to go on the road to face Celtic FC in Scotland.

That's more than just because of how good Manchester City have been -- and winning all 10 competitive matches so far this season with a plus-24 goal differential is really good -- but also because of how rocky things have been for Celtic. Yes, they're standing handily on top of the Scottish Premier League, but they were absolutely annihilated in their first group stage match by a Barcelona side that, by their standards, wasn't even playing all that well. And just to get to the group stage, Celtic benefited from three straight extremely kind draws in qualifying rounds, and still could only barely scrape by each opponent.

Things are definitely not clicking on all cylinders for Brendan Rodgers' side right now, and with Guardiola and City riding high and looking extremely capable of picking on any mistakes their opponents make, this match could turn very ugly, very quickly.
