City travel up to the east end of Glasgow to face scottish champions Celtic in their last away pre-season fixture.
Mark Hughes talks about the game: 'There will be good crowds, good atmospheres at Celtic Park and our own ground. I`ve been lucky enough to see a few games at Celtic over the years, and the support that they have is unbelievable. We`ll embrace that, and I may take a couple of younger players along to sample the atmosphere, because it is so unique."
He continues: "We go into every game to win, even out on the training ground we want every game to be competitive and have an edge. We are really looking forward to this and the AC Milan game on Saturday because we know that they are against quality opposition.
Ex-City player Georgios Samaras is likely to feature at some time during the match
The dutch striker is one of only a few high quality players in the Celtic squad.
With City facing a fixture pile up this month Mark Hughes will try to use the squad to the best of his ability.
Whether Vedran Corluka will be included is very debatable with all that has been in the press recently.
With scottish defences suspect at the best of times I am sure that Martin will take full advantage should he play.
Celtic are very strong at Celtic park as their champions league record their proves.
We have not played Celtic in recent years and so there is no stats readily available for any previous encounters.
Celtic will want to prove something in their last pre-season in front of their home fans and so I think Celtic will edge it. Celtic 2 - 1 City.
