Celtic vs Bayern Munich Preview

Celtic vs Bayern Munich

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Celtic Park

Date: 31st October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Unbeatable defending champions of Scotland Celtic have not surprised many people in the Champions League this season as they have struggled to topple either PSG or Bayern Munich.

They are set to continue their European campaign in the Europa League even though they have defeated Anderlecht away already.

They currently have three points less than their visitors and a win here would see them stand a chance of qualifying ahead of the Germans but that is easier said than done.

They have not been quite as invincible domestically as they were last season as they have dropped points three times this season and a first loss appears closer.

Bayern Munich started the season poorly as Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti had lost control of the dressing room.

However, the appointment of former manager Jupp Heynckes has seen them get back to form and even return to the top of the Bundesliga table.

They lost their second Champions League game 3-0 to PSG which ultimately cost Ancelotti his job but they have since picked some form with 3-0 wins over Celtic and Anderlecht followed by a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig over the weekend and they will be aiming for all three points in this game.

With Robert Lewandoski leading the line and the likes of Joshua Kimmich chipping in with goals occasionally, the Germans will surely get a couple of goals here.
