Slavko Vincic will referee the Manchester City v Celtic Champions League clash on Tuesday.

It’ll be the first time that the 37-year-old Slovakian has taken charge of a Champions League group match but with only pride at stake it should be a fairly straightforward match to control.

Vincic was in charge of last season’s Celtic v Molde Europa League tie at Celtic Park when Nir Bitton got a deserved red card for a foul after being switched to central defence.

This season the Slovakian referee has taken charge of two Europa League group matches, one play off tie and the Champions League third round qualifier between Rosenborg and APOEL.

Internationally his only World Cup qualifier this season was the low key draw between the Faroe Isles and Hungary in September.

Regardless of the result on Tuesday night City will finish in second place and Celtic fourth.

Since the two teams met in September there has been quite a turnaround in City’s form.

Yesterday’s home defeat from Chelsea saw Pep Guardiola’s side drop down to fourth in the table. City arrived at Celtic with a 100% record in the Premier League, since the 3-3 draw they have won three, drawn three and lost twice- to Spurs and Chelsea
