Celtic v Bayern Munich – Match preview

Celtic welcome Bayern Munich to Glasgow on Tuesday night knowing that defeat will effectively end any hopes they might have had of making the Champions League knockout stages.

The re-match from the 3-0 defeat in the Allianz Arena a fortnight ago gives Brendan Rodgers’ charges another chance to prove they can in fact match it with the European elite.

After a chastening 5-0 loss to PSG at Celtic Park in the opening round, they were taught another harsh lesson in Munich in round three.

But Rodgers – who has vowed not to change his side’s approach – is confident that there is more to come from his side.

“Listen, I would rather lose a game playing how we want to play and how we want to work rather than sitting in and defending for 90 minutes and still losing, if that’s the case,” he said.

Bayern scored three at the Allianz Arena – and spurned a host of other chances as a make-shift Celtic back four struggled to cope. Christian Gamboa in particular was given a torrid time by Kingsley Coman and David Alaba down the left.

And with Celtic centre back Jozo Simunovic still struggling with a hamstring problem, it could be more of the same in the reverse fixture.

Rodgers added: “We have to respect where we are at as club, in terms of the level of player we are playing against.

“But you always have to go into every game and believe that you can get a result.

“When we play them next time around we will be at home with a great crowd and we hope that we can better.”

In better news for the Scottish champions Bayern will be without Thomas Muller who scored the opener in Munich in round three.

Reinvigorated after Jupp Heynckes’ return to the helm in the wake of Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking, Muller and Bayern are still playing catch-up with an unbeaten PSG in Group B.

While Celtic, who last reached the knockout stages back in 2012/13, know that the Europa League is effectively the best they can hope for unless they avoid defeat on Tuesday night.
