Few expected last season’s UEFA Europa League semi-finalists to struggle so early in the elite European competition. They were defeated 1-4 at home by Shakhtar, while Real Madrid defeated them 0-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
If the defeat against the Ukrainian team is excluded, RB Leipzig’s players have been performing admirably in front of their fans. This was most evident in the Bundesliga match against Bochum last weekend. They won 4-0 and were very dominant, with two goals each from Christopher Nkuknku and Timo Werner. The good form of this tandem is crucial for the continued good results of this team.
The performance of Marco Rose’s men in this match must be at its peak. They must defeat Celtic if they are to remain equal competitors for a place in the knockout stage. Any other outcome will push them further away from their goal.
Due to the absence of Lukas Klostermann, Konrad Laimer, and Dani Olmo due to injuries, the coaching staff will have a slightly shorter rotation than usual.
The Celtic players, on the other hand, were defeated 0-3 by the current European champion Real Madrid in the first game at Celtic Park, while they earned a point on the road against Shakhtar 1-1.
Ange Postecoglou demands that his players play attractively, and offensively, and to score as many goals as possible. It was clear against Madrid when Celtic’s players missed several great scoring chances in the first half. There has been much speculation that Postecoglou will stay at Wolves, but he is still the manager of the Scottish team.
Celtic’s most effective player is the Portuguese Jota. He scored four goals and provided five assists this season in the Scottish Premiership, and he has already piqued the interest of several major European clubs. If he does not change club in January, it will be a miracle.
These two teams last met in the 2018/19 season in the UEFA Europa League group stage. As the host, RB Leipzig won 2-0, and Celtic won 2-1 at Celtic Park.
RB Leipzig (4-2-3-1): Gulacsi; Raum, Gvardiol, Orban, Simakan; Schlager, Kampl; Szoboszlai, Forsberg, Nkunku; Werner
Celtic (4-3-3): Hart; Taylor, Jenz, Welsch, Juranovic; Hatate, McGregor, O’Riley; Jota, Abada, Furuhashi
Both teams attack with a large number of players in the final third of the pitch. As a result, we anticipate plenty of scoring chances for both teams, and we believe the attackers will be precise and in a good mood.
Kick-off Time: Wednesday, 05.10.2022, 18:45 CET
