The Hoops welcome the Bundesliga champions to Glasgow as they look to upset the odds and keep their continental hopes alive

Celtic and Bayern Munich face off for the second time this season when they meet at Celtic Park in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Bayern were 3-0 winners when they sides met at the Allianz Arena mid-way through October and Brendan Rodgers will be demanding an improved performance, particularly in front of home support.

A win for Jupp Heynkes' side will push them closer to the knock-out stage of the competition and it would be a blow to the Hoops' chances of remaining in with a chance of progressing.

GAME PREVIEW


Jerome Boateng Bayern Munich Moussa Dembele Celtic

Celtic may be dominating on the domestic front, but they are some way off the elite on the continent as this season's Champions League has shown. Rodgers' side have already lost heavily to Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern in Group B, conceding a total of eight and scoring none, which indicates just how big the gap they must bridge currently is.

Despite that, they managed to record a 3-0 away win over Anderlecht, a result which sees them occupy third place in the group and, if they cannot book their place in the knock-out stage, they will be determined to ensure that they parachute into the Europa League at least.

Bayern, meanwhile, are playing catch-up with PSG in the group, but the Bavarians appear to have regained some confidence in recent weeks following the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti and the instatement of Jupp Heynkes at the helm. They have won their last five games in call competitions, including back-to-back wins over RB Leipzig, and they have leapfrogged Borussia Dortmund into first place in the Bundesliga as a result.

Victory against Celtic on Tuesday evening will bring their points tally to nine points and, while it will not necessarily guarantee their place in the last 16, it will put them on the brink of reaching that stage, which would be a massive boost ahead of their Klassiker clash against Dortmund, which takes place four days later.
