Head To Head


This is the first competitive meeting between Celtic & Bayer Leverkusen.

Celtic Form


Celtic have made their worst start to a Scottish Premiership season for 23 years.

The Hoops drew 1-1 at home to Dundee United last weekend and have now dropped points in three of their last four games, losing twice.

Their European form has not been much better. They were dumped out of Champions League qualifying by FC Midtjylland.

They bounced back to see off Jablonec and AZ Alkmaar in qualifying for the Europa League group stage.

Celtic made a flying start to their group stage opener at Real Betis, taking a 2-0 lead inside 27 minutes. They went on to lose 4-3, however.

Celtic Injuries & Team News


Celtic are hit with injuries to some key players with leading scorer Kyogo Furuhashi (knee) out.

He is joined on the sidelines by Christopher Julien (knee), Karamoko Dembele (knee), Greg Taylore (shoulder), James Forrest (unspecified), Georgios Giakoumakis (calf) and Callum McGregor (hamstring).

Bayer Leverkusen Form


Bayer Leverkusen head to Glasgow in good form having won three straight games and five of the last six.

In eight competitive fixtures so far their only defeat has come at the hands of Borussia Dortmund.

Leverkusen saw off Mainz 1-0 at the weekend to remain second in the Bundesliga table and stay hot on the heels of Bayern Munich.

They have made a solid start to this competition too, beating Ferencvaros on opening night.

They fell behind to a surprise opener in that one but got back on level terms before half-time. Florian Wirtz completed the comeback after the break.

Bayer Leverkusen Injuries & Team News


Bayer Leverkusen will be without several players here – Timothy Fosu-Mensah (knee), Julian Baumgartlinger (knee), Exequiel Palacios (ankle), Niklas Lomb (finger) and Edmons Tapsoba (ankle).

Robert Andrich is available as he continues to serve a domestic suspension, while ex-Celtic defender Jeremie Frimpong is expected to feature.
