This season has been trickier for Bayern Munich than they ever wanted it to be, a fact highlighted by their humiliating loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the last round of Champions League action that cost Carlo Ancelotti his job. Now Jupp Heynckes back in charge once more, Bayern are looking to get back on track, starting with a hopeful win over Celtic FC.
Heynckes lead Bayern to a dominating 5-0 romp over Freiburg over the weekend, and it’s time for him to make his return to the Champions League. The last manager to bring Champions League gold to Munich, fans will be hoping that Heynckes can work his magic once more and restore order to a season off on the wrong foot. But Brendan Rodgers is nothing if not an opportunist, and if he sees any way for Celtic to sneak in a result and upset Bayern, he and Celtic are going to do everything they can to make it happen.
Both teams are in relatively good health coming into this match. Bayern Munich will only be missing Franck Ribery, whose absence is somewhat lesser now thanks to age reducing his role fairly significantly this year. Celtic FC will be without Anthony Ralston and Jozo Šimunović, but their absences are fortunately in an area where the Scottish side has a bit of depth to compensate.
