Expect Incredible Atmosphere - Celtic Star Warns RB Leipzig On Trip To Parkhead

Rodgers, whose side have three points from their first two fixtures, challenged those fringe players who will come in to make their mark, and in the first of a double-header against the German side he is looking for a better performance after their 3-1 defeat to Salzburg in their last European outing.

In such a big game we may have a youngster low on confidence as well as a defender in Benkovic who is not 100% fit. If we are going to have any aspiration of getting through the group, it's a game first and foremost we have to win.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson reckons Brendan Rodgers will spurn the advances of Premier League clubs if they offer him the chance to work South of the border again.

There was further collateral damage to Celtic in the 73rd minute as Simunovic picked up an injury and had to be replaced by Jack Hendry, before Leipzig keeper Yvon Mvogo blocked a shot from Olivier Ntcham with his foot to deny the Hoops midfielder a goal that might have made the final minutes more tense. We trust in everybody in our squad and we're looking forward to this game.

"For us to have an opportunity to take a positive result out of the game, it's really about performing to a high level for us".

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is without a host of firstchoice players tonight as his side take on Red Bull Leipzig.

"We're playing against one of the top teams in Germany but we still have to show our way of playing and when we do that we know we can cause problems".

The home side cruised their way through the second half to leave the Scottish champions in third place with three points from nine, with leaders Salzburg on nine and RB Leipzig second with six.

Rodgers said: "Jozo looks like he'll be struggling".

"Those three are good players but Celtic are a club that is well known across Europe for not letting players go for a bargain".

Rodgers told "BBC Scotland", "We're still in with a great chance".

"They like to press and build from the back using their wing-backs".
