What channel is the Celtic game on? Bayer Leverkusen info, kick-off time, TV and stream details

Celtic’s hopes of progressing in the Europa League go firmly on the line when they face Bayer Leverkusen in the BayArena on Thursday in the penultimate match of their Group G campaign.

Ange Postecoglou’s men, who ensured at least the Conference League knock-out stages in the new year with their back-to-back wins over Ferencvaros, look certain to require at least a draw to have any prospect of playing Europa League football beyond Christmas. That is the case because Betis, currently a point above Celtic on seven points, are highly unlikely to slip up against the now bottom-spot condemned pointless Hungarians when the pair meet in Seville on Thursday.

Leverkusen are the last team to beat Celtic, courtesy of their thumping 4-0 victory in Glasgow on September 30. That sobering outcome has been followed by eight wins and a draw for Postecoglou’s side. It is a run that has made Celtic the form team in Scotland as they have found their groove in the best spell since the Australian took charge of the club in the summer.
