Bayern Will Be Led by Jupp Heynckes in Celtic Double-Header

Bayern Will Be Led by Jupp Heynckes in Celtic Double-Header

Bayern Munich will be led by Jupp Heynckes when they go into their Champions League double leader with Celtic.

The German giants chose to sack Carlo Ancelotti last month following the team’s disappointing 3-0 defeat to PSG in match day two of the competition.

That result puts PSG in the driving seat in the group as you’d fancy the French side to beat Anderlecht in their next two games.

And Bayern know they’ll need to beat Celtic back to back if they’re to have any chance of challenging for top spot going into the last 16 of the competition.

The Hoops are on three points alongside Bayern and might fancy themselves, at least at home, to win against the Bundesliga greats.

But Bayern will undoubtedly be a lot better after appointing Heynckes as Ancelotti’s replacement until the end of the season:

Heynckes is now Bayern manager for the fourth time – returning to the club three years after making way for Pep Guardiola to take over the job.

At 72, it’s unlikely he’ll continue beyond the season, but it’s his Bayern team that Celtic will go up against in the Champions League and that’s undoubtedly a tough prospect for Brendan Rodgers’ men.
