What channel is RB Leipzig v Celtic on? TV details, live stream, kick-off time, referee

Celtic travel to Germany on Wednesday for a Champions League meeting with RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga side are no stranger to the Old Firm having faced Rangers in the Europa League semi-finals last season and Celtic in the Europa League group stages four years ago.

On each occasion the Germans won their home fixture - a trend Ange Postecoglou's side will hope to reverse in order to keep their hopes of reaching the last 16 alive - and lost the away tie.

Celtic have one point from their opening two group fixtures after a 3-0 defeat at home to Real Madrid was followed by a 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk in Poland.

Leipzig are bottom of the group and pointless after suffering a 4-1 home hammering to Shakhtar which was followed up by a 2-0 loss in the Bernabeu.

Celtic warmed up for the fixture with nervy 2-1 win over Motherwell at Parkhead on Saturday while Leipzig breezed past VfL Bochum with a 4-0 home win in the Bundesliga, where they currently sit in 11th place.

Celtic defender Cameron Carter-Vickers remains doubtful. The US international missed the 2-1 league victory over Motherwell due to an unspecified injury and may not be risked. If Carter-Vickers fails to make it, then it is likely Stephen Welsh and Moritz Jenz will continue their defensive partnership, as the club’s other regular centre-half Carl Starfelt is also missing with injury.

Giorgos Giakoumakis is in the same boat having also missed the Motherwell match.
