Will the Bavarian upturn continue?
Clear role allocation in the second match of Group B next Tuesday. FC Bayern München are reigning on their way to Celtic Glasgow. Not an easy task, but in the current state of the German record champions is still clearly to favor. Kick-off in the Celtic Park is on 31 October at 20:45.
Current form Celtic Glasgow
In the case of Celtic Glasgow, it is estimated that RSC Anderlecht will be in third place in Group B. The opponents from Munich and Paris seem too powerful. This was also evident in the direct duels. Against PSG they were absolutely hopeless at the 0: 5 kick-off, also against Bayern there was a smooth 0: 3 in the Allianz Arena two weeks ago. However, it is also a fact that Celtic is much better rated in the international competition at home than away, just think of the brilliant 3: 3 against Manchester City in the presidency. On the other hand, one has problems against weaker teams again and again, as observed in the 3: 4 in the qualification against Astana. However: The dress rehearsal for the duel with the Bayern against Kilmarnock was not enough to score a 1-1 draw at Celtic Park. It was the second point loss in the last four games, which was unusual for Celtic. Before the draw on Matchday 12, however, defeated the first pursuers from Aberdeen clearly 3-0. In general, the men of Brendan Rodgers in the Scottish Premiership were defensively very stable. In no less than six games of the championship Celtic remained completely clean sheet. However, it is also a fact that all of the points lost in 2017/2018 had to be accepted at home so far. It did not always go according to desire, especially in the just-vowed defense. Five out of six conceding matches had to be taken at home. Of course, at 11 completed games, whining at a very high level, worth mentioning this fact anyway. So far, the Rodgers-Elf has a clearly negative record against German teams. Overall, they went in ten home games against teams from the Bundesliga only three times as the winner from the square, in contrast, there were no fewer than five defeats. Strengths we see in the Scots currently mainly on the wings. Both Kieran Tierney (left) and Michael Lustig (right) were among the top rated players in the season so far. Bitter: There is currently no real scorer in their own ranks: Mousa Dembéle showed last ascending form, but top scorer is currently with Callum McGregor a central midfielder.
Current Form FC Bayern Munich
The Jupp effect stops! Bayern are still undefeated under their new coach. There are four victories and one draw to be won, the Leipzig Cup scoring in the penalty shoot-out. In the Bundesliga it ran absolutely as desired. Since Jupp Heynckes took over the team, they conceded no goal in the championship. Lastly, there was a 2-0 win against RB Leipzig, which meant that the Munichers also for the first time in a long time to the table top of the Bundesliga. Accordingly, the factor of self-confidence also speaks for the German record holder. The match against Leipzig showed that above all Robben and James show increasing form. Bayern Munich is currently very dominant, especially in halftime one tied Leipzig in the half. Striking: Sebastian Rudy and wing-player seals harmonize very well now, the Hasenhüttl-Elf repeatedly presented problems. However, it should not be forgotten that RB had to act less early in the encounter with a man. Advantage Bayern: In halftime two you could save strength, despite Mammut program in the last weeks on Tuesday have no conditional problems. Impressive: Bayern recorded in the 90 minutes, a pass rate of over 90 percent, even in matters of duels you were ahead of the opponent, could win 53 percent of the duels win and claim 72 percent of the game shares. Bitter: Lewandowski had to be injured against RB shortly before the break, whether to get fit until Tuesday, has not yet been fixed. Fixed fail Bernat, Neuer and Ribery, even Thomas Müller is still questionable after his hamstring. At the weekend, the Munich team was also strong in standard situations, both defensive and offensive. In all, the opponents were allowed to attack in 90 minutes. The fact that the wing game is now agile and fast-paced is due not least to the slightly higher level of full-backs, who are much more involved in the attacks. Above all, David Alaba has recently improved greatly. The left side was also Saturday, on those that ran no less than 39 percent of the attacks.
For the Bavarians is currently the same as for PSG in Group B. There will probably be no nonsense, even if an away match against Celtic can always be an unpleasant test.
