90'+4

FT: Celtic 3-3 Manchester City - A breathless game of football. Dembele scores twice as City fight back three times to draw. A six-goal thriller that will live long in the memory.

89' 

Time is running out but both sides keen to win it. Celtic closing in on the honour of becoming the first team to deny Guardiola's City this season.

87' 

Sterrling has been so dangerous tonight. He delivers another wicked cross from the right, but this time Lustig makes a crucial headed clearance.

85' 

That's the last throw of the dice for Brendan Rodgers. His side have been sensational tonight, but it could still get better for them...

Absolutely no way of guessing which way this game is going to go. Both sides look more than capable of going on too win it.

63' 

Silva picks out Aguero with a deep cross to the far post, but Aguero's header deflects off Sviatchenko and goes out for a corner. Big chance for Aguero that, and what a ball by Silva!

Tierney should be booked for grabbing Sterling and stopping him from turning. He somehow gets away with it.

59' 

Nolito almost picks out Aguero with a through ball, but it's cut out well. City yet to lead tonight, remember.

17' 

Celtic just trying to recapture that initial tempo of the early minutes of the game. City still not looking entirely comfortable out there, but their goal has settled them somewhat.

Good effort by Rogic, who bends a low free-kick through the City wall but just the wrong side of the post. Bravo was at full stretch.

Aguero spots the run of Silva, but Gordon is quickly out of his goal to deny a shooting opportunity for Silva. First attack City have had.

9' 

Sinclair's corner is poor but he gets a second bite at the cherry, skins Gundogan and dinks a nice cross into the box, but City unconvincingly hack it clear.

8' 

Zabaleta concedes another corner - Celtic all over City here!

7' 

Replays showing Dembele was just offside as he deflected the ball into the net. It was close, but his foot was just about beyond the last defender.

6'

Almost a second! A loose ball drops to Kolo Toure, who had stayed up from a previous corner, and his snapshot on the turn is batted away well by Bravo.

5' 

Incredible start to this game, and City are all over the place at the back. Celtic look like scoring every time they go forward.

Kick-off. We're off on a wet and windy night in Glasgow.

19.40 

The players are out at Celtic Park and it's a cracking atmosphere as ever. We're less than five minutes away from kick off...

19.35 

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers on why he picked Craig Gordon ahead of Dutchman Dorus de Vries."Dorus obviously came off injured at the weekend, maybe he could've played. You don't need to take the risk. Craig's an outstanding goalkeeper."

19.30 
19.25 

Guardiola added: "It is not easy. I saw the game against Rangers here, how intensive it was. It was completely different to the way they played in Barcelona, which was more passive. Against Rangers it was so aggressive, high pressing, that is the game we are going to expect from them."

19.20 

Guardiola is expecting a reaction from Celtic after their 7-0 pounding in Barcelona two weeks ago: "Many, many teams suffer the same as what happened in Barcelona," he said. "You cannot imagine how many goals Barcelona can score in five minutes but for 92/93/94 minutes they will be focused so it will be completely different."

19.15 

Heavy rain saw Manchester City's opening Champions League game delayed by 24 hours, and the Premier League side have brought more wet weather with them - more heavy rain in Glasgow tonight.

19.10 

Stat attack.

19.05 

For City, there are three changes from Saturday's win at Swansea, Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Nolito are in, with Aleksandar Kolarov switching to a central defensive role and John Stones, somewhat surprisingly, dropping to the bench.

19.00 

As well as bringing in goalkeeper Craig Gordon, Celtic restore Kolo Toure to the heart of defence. Leigh Griffiths stays on the bench after making a scoring return from injury last weekend.

18.55 

And the City team.
