Can Bayern do it without Lewandowski?

Weary from two back-to-back fixtures against RB Leipzig, a highly depleted Bayern Munich travel to Glasgow to face Scottish champions Celtic at the Celtic Park.

The Bavarians will be without the services of star striker Robert Lewandowski, who was reportedly left behind in Munich as a precautionary measure. Thomas Muller remains temporarily sidelined, while Manuel Neuer and Franck Ribery remain out with long term injuries. However, Kingsley Coman is expected to be back in the side after missing the game against Leipzig at the Allianz Arena. Jupp Heynckes will have his work cut out managing such a depleted squad in a hostile ground such as the Celtic Park, but he will hope that his team is up to the task.

It’s Bayern time.

  2. Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
  3. The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
