Perhaps training with Justin Bieber will give Barcelona the luck they need to pull off a victory against Celtic on Nov. 23. Lionel Messi and his crew will go for the Champions League win and it’s a game no one should miss. Click to watch every thrilling second!
Normally, no one would question whether or not Barcelona (first place in Group C of the Champions League) would demolish Celtic F.C. (last place in Group C.) Yet, after Lionel Messi, 29, Luis Suarez, 29, and Neymar, 24, were held to a scoreless draw against Malaga in La Liga, this could be another upset in the making. The action from Celtic Park in lovely Glasgow, Scotland will take place at 2:30 PM ET.

Don’t blame Messi for Barcelona’s failure to score on Malaga, as he sat out of the game due to illness, according to the BBC. Despite having 81% possession of the ball, which led to 14 corners and 28 shots on the goal, Barca could not get the job done. Luis Suarez wasn’t there either, as he was sitting out a suspension due to getting a fifth and final yellow card in a previous match.
“We have lost games with Messi and Suarez in the team,” manager Luis Enrique said, downplaying the idea that the side couldn’t win without two/thirds of The Trident. It’s squads that win titles.”
Thankfully, whatever was bothering Messi has gone away. He returned to training with his team on Nov. 21. The Trident will be whole again, and many expect Jordi Alba, 27, to return to the starting lineup. After recovering from a hamstring injury, Jordi will likely replace Lucas Digne, 23, in the starting lineup. Sadly, captain Andres Iniesta, 32, is out, though he might be back for the Classico on Dec. 3.
If Barcelona needs to make any replacements, they could call up Justin Bieber, 22. Biebs decided to pop by the Blaugrana training ground on Nov. 21, joining Messi, Neymar and others for some warm-up exercises. Justin proved that he could fire off some serious shots on goal. Maybe someone should get him a uniform?
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will Barcelona be held to another scoreless draw or will they make a statement by demolishing the Scottish side?
