With the Blues visiting AFC Telford United in the FA Trophy first round, supporters unable to make the trip to New Bucks Head can still get a football fix on Saturday and a healthy crowd will provide the National League club with a welcome financial boost.
The Premier League U21 International Cup game kicks-off at 1pm and brings together two of the most famous clubs in Europe, both chasing their first win in this season's competition.
Liverpool, who lost 2-0 to Portuguese powerhouse Benfica at Chester last month, suffered a 3-1 defeat to rivals Everton at Langtree Park in St Helens on Sunday.
Harry Wilson, who has been recalled from a loan spell with Crewe Alexandra, netted the goal Michael Beale's side, which include experienced defender Jose Enrique.
Cameron Brannagan, Jerome Sinclair and Jordan Rossiter, who have made first-team appearances, are expected to be involved and with a host of academy products featuring for Jürgen Klopp’s side in recent months, the game should give fans a glimpse into the future.
Beale said after the Everton loss: "We started so well and dominated for the first 25-30 minutes, but we missed big opportunities to take the lead.
"Everton scored with the first attack and this completely changed the flow of the game."
Celtic have something to prove too after losing 5-0 to Chelsea last weekend, conceding four times inside the opening 22 minutes.
Academy coach Tommy McIntyre said afterwards: "The most important thing is that we learn. We can’t have it our own way all the time. Sometimes you learn more in a defeat and on this occasion we’ll definitely learn from this one.
Italian goalkeeper Leonardo Fasan, defender Fiacre Kelleher and midfielder Aidan Nesbitt have been included in Ronny Delia's senior squad.
Admission costs £5 for adults, £3 concessions and £1 for U16s.
Both the East Stand and West Stand will be open, kiosks will be selling refreshments throughout the game and the Blues Bar will be open from 11.30am.
