Bayern : The headline should be ‘Bayern’s back’. What a beautiful display that was from Bayern against Freiburg, surely the Legend Jupp Heynckes is responsible for this change. Now Jupp’s Bayern face Scottish League leaders Celtic on MatchDay 3 of the Champions League.
The Bavarians have some injury concerns to deal with as Manuel Neuer, Juan Bernat, Arturo Vidal and Franck Ribery all are out with injuries surely, now one of Jupp’s favourite Javi Martinez also remain as a doubt as he picked up a shoulder injury in Bayern’s 5-0 win against Freiburg last matchday, Rudy may deputise for Martinez. It remains to be seen if unused sub James Rodriguez gets a start over Muller or Coman against the Glaswegians.
Possible line up – Bayern (4-2-3-1) : Ulreich; Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Alaba; Thiago, Rudy; Robben, James, Coman; Lewandowski.
Celtic : The Glaswegians are facing tough competition this time around in the Scottish League, Aberdeen are giving Brendon Rodgers side a tough time, though still Celtic lead on goal difference.
Celtic’s Champions League form has been quite like that of Bayern, defeated Anderlecht and got defeated mercilessly by PSG. Now it remains to be seen how they battle it out when they face eachother on Wednesday evening.
Brendon Rodgers will be without a host of first team players as Scott Brown, Stuart Armstrong, Jozo Simunovic all remain out through knee injuries. Tom Rogic may also remain out through jetlac of International Duty. So Rodgers job is becoming tough to tougher gradually.
Possible line up – Celtic (4-2-3-1) : Gordon; Lustig, Biton, Boyata, Tierney; McGregor, Ntcham; Forrest, Roberts, Sinclair; Griffiths.
