Team news

Celtic arrive in Germany without too many injury worries. Centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers will face a late fitness test and his fellow defender Carl Starfelt will definitely miss out, but besides that defensive duo Ange Postecoglou has a full squad to choose from. 

Midfielder Callum McGregor picked up a red card in Celtic's win over Motherwell at the weekend, but will be in the starting line-up to face Leipzig.

Leipzig winger Yussuf Poulson is expected to be fit to face Celtic after recovering from a cold that kept him out of the match against Bochum at the weekend. However, midfielder Dani Olmo is still out due to injury. 

Leipzig will field both Timo Werner and Christopher Nkunku up front. Both scored a brace at the weekend and while Werner played for Chelsea, Nkunku seems to be heading to West London next season after reportedly signing a pre-contract with the Blues.
