At this stage of the summer, Celtic are usually trying to negotiate their way through the European qualifying rounds, handing them competitive football from the off.

However, with Champions League football already secured, Ange Postecoglou has been able to witness his squad slowly get up to speed through a number of friendlies.

So far, Celtic have two wins and a draw to their name, their preparations being undertaken in Austria and Czech Republic against the likes of Rapid Vienna and Banik Ostrava.

In the latter of those games on Wednesday, Celtic came from behind to run out 4-2 winners, although the goals conceded took their tally to five for the summer.

Facing off against Blackburn should represent a step up in quality ahead of further games against Legia Warsaw and Norwich City.

From the perspective of the visitors, they have encountered a different level of schedule, one which started off with two 60-minute games at Accrington Stanley.

The fixture at Dundee on Wednesday night marked their return to 90-minute action, a 1-1 draw being recorded in their first game North of the border.

An own goal from a Dundee trialist was required to earn a share of the spoils, but Jon Dahl Tomasson will be happy enough with his players experiencing the standard format in preparation for their first Championship game at the end of the month.

Having made sweeping changes to his Celtic XI at half time against Banik Ostrava, Postecoglou may be prepared to stick with the same starting lineup for this game.
