Our football match prediction:
After defeating Anderlecht in their opener, Bayern Munich suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes in their second group match. Coach Carlo Ancelotti paid price for the unpleasant defeat, with Jupp Heynckes taking over the reins. The mighty Bavarians aim to return to winning ways in Group B and they are widely expected to pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match against Celtic. Robert Lewandowski is enjoying yet another successful season and all eyes will be on the Poland international when the two teams face each other at Allianz Arena. Celtic did well to beat Anderlecht 3-0 in Brussels, but defeating the star-studded Bundesliga champions on the road is easier said than done and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Hoops will return to Glasgow empty-handed. In their last meeting in Munich Bayern recorded a 2-1 win over Celtic.
Highlighted Player (Jerome Boateng):
After spending the 2010/2011 season at Manchester City, Jerome Boateng moved to Bayern Munich on 14 July, 2011. The 192-cm-tall defender joined the Bundesliga giants for a fee of €13.5 million and he has been playing for the Bavarians ever since. Despite the fact that his father is Ghanaian, Boateng decided to represent Germany on the international stage. He has 15 caps for Germany U21 and represented Germany national team at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The Bayern Munich defender produced a thrilling performance in the title game, preventing Argentine star Leo Messi from scoring. Boateng won the World Cup trophy with German and it has to be noted that he clinched his fourth Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich in the 2015/2016 season. In 2013 he helped the mighty Bavarians win the Champions League trophy. Unlike Jerome, his older brother Kevin-Prince Boateng plays for the Ghanaian national team. The Bayern Munich defender has a contract with the Allianz Arena outfit which expires on 30 June, 2012.
Highlighted Team (Celtic):
The Celtic Football Club boasts a proud over 100-year long history which has made The Bhoys a global brand thanks to their unprecedented social awareness that dates to the very beginnings of this Scottish club. Celtic was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow by raising money to help their fellow citizens. The charity legacy continues to this day with Celtic still preserving their charitable traditions through the Celtic FC Foundation. The Celts play their home matches at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people. One of the two most successful football clubs in Scotland with 47 Scottish League Championship titles to their name, Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, with the clubs known as the Old Firm. European Cup winners from season 1966-67 and runners-up two years later, Celtic have been regular in European competitions since their first appearance in 1962-63. Their other most standout results have been runners-up in the EUFA Cup in 2003 and Intercontinental Cup in 1967.
