RB Leipzig v Celtic LIVE: Champions League updates – VAR rules out Christopher Nkunku goal

Celtic meet RB Leipzig in Group F of the Champions League

Celtic travel to Germany to face RB Leipzig in a crucial clash in the Champions League group stage. The Scottish champions have a point from their opening two games after a draw against Shakhtar Donetsk and could take a big step closer to reaching the knockout stages if they win tonight.

RB Leipzig are bottom of Group F after losing both of their opening Champions League games, but they come into the game with a 4-0 win over VfL Bochum. This season’s Champions League campaign has been disappointing for the German side, but they can get back on track by taking three points against Celtic.

However, the Hoops have impressed in Europe so far, even if their performances haven’t brought them the rewards they wanted. Manager Ange Postegolou was frustrated that his side could only pick up a point against Shakhtar but they are beginning to believe they can compete in Europe’s top competition. Can they get their first Champions League win of the season?
