Valencia CF will play against Celtic Football Club in the UEFA Europa League in the second leg of the last 32 at 6.55 pm (5.55 pm BST) kick-off time at Mestalla. Valencia CF collected a 0-2 advantage in the tie last Thursday at Celtic Park last Thursday.
The latest European clash between Valencia CF and Celtic took place at Mestalla back in the 2001-02 season in the third round of the UEFA. Vicente Rodríguez unleashed a powerful left footer beyond Douglas after latching onto a Carboni pass from a clever set-play in the 75th minute. The tie went to extra time and Valencia CF went through to the next round on penalties at Celtic Park.
