I'll be up at Pittodrie this afternoon for their game against an energetic Aberdeen team - a match I expect will be one of the more compelling tussles of the season.
But it's fair to say that uppermost on the Celtic players' minds will be the journey afterwards to face Shakhter Karagandy.
Neil Lennon's side will fly directly to Kazakhstan from Aberdeen, journeying through the night into a game that really is a trip into the unknown.
The very fact that there has never been a team from Kazakhstan in the Champions League should tell us something about the standard.
But, at the same time, it would be foolish to dismiss a team who have made it through to the last qualifying round.
Although I think they will have something about them, I cannot see this being another Artmedia Bratislava. I do think that, ultimately, Celtic will prevail over the two legs, but it will be vital they approach the opening leg with common sense.
It will not be the end of the world should they come away on the back of a 1-0 defeat since I think they will then have the chance to correct things at Celtic Park. It is always an advantage to play the return tie on your own turf, in front of your own crowd and when you know exactly what you have to do.
I know Lennon won't be happy at the thought of yet another game on a plastic surface, but I have spoken to a few people and apparently the artificial grass shouldn't be a problem.
By all accounts, it is one of the more superior turfs, unlike the one in Sweden, which was one of the older surfaces.
The biggest problem I can envisage for Celtic will be the long journey.
It will have been a busy week for many of the players in the squad with so many involved in international football and then getting ready to fly through the night into a country we know so little about.
You would like to think the Scottish lads on the trip who were involved at Wembley on Wednesday night - James Forrest, Scott Brown and Charlie Mulgrew - will have enjoyed that big-match atmosphere and will take the positives from that with them.
I can also imagine that both this weekend and next Neil would sacrifice league points in order to do everything he can to get Celtic into the group stages. The Parkhead side lost seven league games last term, which was more than their manager would have liked, but Celtic's whole season rests on the outcome of these two games against Shakhter.
I suspect the experience of playing against, and beating, Liverpool in Dublin last weekend can help a lot of the youngsters at the club.
For that reason, there is ample reason to expect that a good few of them might get the nod for the game against Aberdeen today.
It would give a few of the senior players the chance to rest and get themselves into the best possible shape for Tuesday night.
