United In Hope: Villarreal-Celtic friendly GAMETHREAD

I don't actually know if there will be a stream for this--haven't found one yet--but people can comment on here if they find one. And if not, maybe those who actually attend can give us their impressions afterwards.

Glasgow Celtic visit Villarreal in a very special friendly, a fundraiser spearheaded by the Celtic Submari supporters' group to raise funds for research into ways of alleviating side effects of standard treatments of pediatric cancer.

Entry to the match is €5, there have been lots of parties with €5 paella servings as well.  It's the 10th anniversary of the Celtic-Villarreal match that got the whole friendship among the supporters and the Celtic Submari started.

As was noted earlier, the plan is for one of the cancer patients to score a goal (Villarreal gave him a one-day contract!) I assume at the start of the match.

Unusually, I have the Celtic starting XI, but not ours.  Celtic: Zaluska; Breslin, Twardzik, Izaguirre, Tierney; Lindsay, Kayal; Thomson, Berget, Boerrigter; Griffiths (MD)
