Bayern Munich are back in action! This time, it’s the UEFA Champions League they have to contend with, as Scottish champions Celtic FC pay a visit to the Allianz Arena.
Bayern are a completely changed side from their last European outing. A disastrous 3-0 defeat to PSG on matchday 2 lead to wholesale changes at the club, including to sacking of coach Carlo Ancelotti. Former treble winning coach Jupp Heynckes now finds himself restored to the hot seat, tasked with guiding the Bavarians through a European campaign that has been lousy so far.
Manuel Neuer will be unavailable until 2018, so Jupp is expected to start Sven Ulreich in goal. Arturo Vidal is back, so he will be able to cover for Javi Martinez's injury in midfield. Apart from that, there should be no surprises in the lineup.
It’s Bayern time.
