Shakhtar Donetsk vs Celtic live stream: Is game on TV? Channel and kick-off time
Celtic’s first Champions League group stage campaign in five years continues as they travel to Poland to face Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Scottish champions lost 3-0 in their opening fixture at home to Real Madrid, but will take plenty of heed from their first-half performance which saw the match goalless at the break.
In contrast, Shakhtar - who are unable to play in their home country due to the war in Ukraine, defeated RB Leipzig 4-1 in Germany.
Igor Jovicevic’s side were clinical, scoring all four of their efforts on target whilst only having 32% possession in the game. They sit second in the Ukrainian Premier League, but have had to move to Lviv as Donetsk is close to the Russian border.
Celtic, like the rest of the British clubs, had last weekend’s match against Livingston postponed due to the passing of long-standing monarch Queen Elizabeth II. Before that, they thrashed rivals Rangers 4-0 at Celtic Park.

What time does Shakhtar Donetsk v Celtic kick off?
The Ukrainians have a fully fit squad to select from as they aim to continue their 100% record in the group stages.
In general, they have suffered greatly on-field due to the war, with players such as David Neres and Dodo joining European clubs to leave the difficulties behind. They have signed seven players this summer, with five heralding from Ukraine.
The Bhoys will be without central defender Carl Starfelt who will miss the rest of the month with a knee injury. Yosuke Ideguchi is also missing, but is ineligible for selection at this stage due to not being registered.
