    Hoops looking to turn tide

    Celtic have never won an away match in Germany in 13 previous attempts (D3, L10).

    They have failed to score in nine of those games and have only registered six goals in the other games.

    The Hoops have only won one of their previous 13 games in the UEFA Champions League (D3, L9).

    Scotland looking for some European cheer

    After Rangers’ defeat at Anfield last night, neither of the Scottish teams in the Champions League have managed to register a win thus far.

    Celtic will be looking to break an away record that has not seen them win on the road in the competition since 2017.

    Their last away win was a 3-0 victory over Anderlecht in Belgium.

    Celtic boss wary of German challenge

    The Hoops head coach outlined what he is expecting from tonight’s opponents:

    If you look at their recent form, they’re definitely a goal threat and they’ve got both individual players, but the manner in which they play, they’re an aggressive side as well, and we kind of know what to expect.

    Leipzig back to winning ways

    The German side avoided a third straight defeat in all competitions at the weekend with a 4-0 win over Bochum VfL in the Bundesliga.

    Chelsea-linked Christopher Nkunku and former Blues forward Timo Werner were in fine form.

    Both players scored a brace to claim their third league win in eight matches this season.

    Welcome to RB Leipzig vs Celtic

    RB Leipzig welcome Celtic to the Red Bull Arena with both teams searching for their first win in this season’s Champions League campaign.

    If either side has any ambitions of making the last-16, victory tonight is a must, the German side will be looking to force their dominance on Celtic from the off.

    Leipzig duo Konrad Laimer and Lukas Klostermann are both ruled out with ankle injuries, while Dani Olmo is sidelined with a ligament problem.

    Rose is unlikely to make too many changes, if any, with centre-back Mohamed Simakan set to continue at right-back in the absence of Klostermann and Xaver Schlager deputising for Laimer in centre-midfield alongside Kevin Kampl.

    Werner, who was an unused substitute the last time Leipzig faced Celtic five years ago, is expected to start in attack with Nkunku, who was directly involved in nine Champions League goals in just six group games last season.

    As for Celtic, Carl Starfelt (knee) and Georgios Giakoumakis (leg) are both set to miss out through injury, while Cameron Carter-Vickers (knock) and James McCarthy (illness) are both doubtful and will be assessed ahead of kickoff.
