Bayern Munich v Celtic - Match preview

Celtic face one of the biggest clubs in the world when they take on Bayern Munich in Germany this Wednesday.

The Hoops go into the contest in high spirits following their 3-0 thumping of RSC Anderlecht in the last round of matches but will expect a sterner test this week.

The German champions haven’t had it all their own way this season, and parted company with manager Carlo Ancelotti following their defeat in Paris last month, but have steadied the ship since the return of Jupp Heynckes.

And Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is expecting the very best Bayern Munich to turn up this week.

"We have to be realistic. Everyone is looking at Bayern and thinking they have fallen out the tree and are in turmoil but I don't see that at all,” he said.

“They are full of world-class players, they've got a manager back in who knows the club well and this is a competition they want to win.

“It's a great game for us, great experience for these players, going to this arena to play against a top-class team.

“But we will go there very confident that we can do well and go and impose how we want to work.”

Bayern Munich v Celtic - Team news

Celtic will be without defender Josip Simunic, who has a hamstring problem.

However, there was better news for Rodgers with the return of midfield duo Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong.

Bayern, meanwhile, are missing long-term injury victims Franck Ribery and Manuel Neuer, while Javi Martinez and Juan Bernat also remain sidelined.
