Hoops need victory over Bayern
Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side take on German champions Bayern Munich at Parkhead on Tuesday night with the home side needing a win.

The chances of the Hoops making it into the knockout phase of the Champions League are small after defeats at home to PSG and away to Bayern with a victory at Anderlecht thrown in as well.

That leaves them sat on three points from three games, so defeat on Tuesday would see them all but mathematically out of the next phase of the competition.

Qualification for the Europa League is not guaranteed yet, although they are favourites as it would appear unlikely that Belgium side Anderlecht will pick up any points against either Bayern or PSG, who top the group with three wins out of three.

The vital clash will be when the Belgium side visit Celtic Park on December 5.

To keep knock-out hopes alive Celtic must defeat a Bayern side who have been hit with injuries and will be without striker Robert Lewandowski after the Poland star picked up a knock in their win over RB Leipzig at the weekend.

They are also without keeper Manuel Neuer and France winger Franck Ribery who are long-term absentees as well as striker Thomas Muller and centre-halves Jozo Simunovic and Eric Sviatchenko.

With those injuries in mind coupled to the fact a win is vital to keep hopes alive Celtic could be set for a historic night in the east end of Glasgow.

Never the less history is not on Celtic’s side as they have won only one of their last eight home games in the Champions League proper, against Ajax back in 2013, and are on an eight game winless run against German opposition.

Bayern are not great away from home in Europe though, winning just two of their past nine games away from the Allianz Arena in the competition although victory for them on Tuesday would see them into the knockout stage for the tenth season on the bounce.

Celtic winger Patrick Roberts is expected to miss out after picking up a hamstring injury at the weekend but Rodgers is expected to recall all his front line players.

He rested captain Scott Brown for the draw with Kilmarnock, along with Dedryck Boyata and James Forrest, while Scott Sinclair, Moussa Dembele and Stuart Armstrong were restricted to roles off the substitutes' bench but all are expected back on Tuesday.
