Real Betis vs Celtic: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and how to watch the Europa League clash on BT Sport

Celtic travel to Spain to face La Liga outfit Real Betis in Matchday 1 of the Europa League.

Ange Postecoglou takes charge of his first Europa League game as Celtic manager when they begin their European campaign against Real Betis.

Celtic failed to reach the knockout stages of last season's competition after being drawn alongside AC Milan, Lille and Sparta Prague but the Bhoys will have high hopes of escaping a group that contains Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros.

Summer signing Kyogo Furuhashi has impressed since arriving in Scotland while ex-England goalkeeper Joe Hart provides some valuable European experience after joining on a free from Spurs. 

Betis have also been busy in the transfer market, brining in Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin on loan as well as former Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose.
