Celtic face a mountainous task in the next of their Europa League fixtures on TV as they jet off to face Bayer Leverkusen this week.
The Bhoys sit third in Group G following back-to-back victories over Ferencvaros, but they know that to stand a realistic chance of finishing in the top two, they must record a victory over either Leverkusen or Real Betis. Both of those teams have already toppled Celtic in the competition so far.
Celtic were demolished 4-0 by the Germans in September and know that a similar result, and an expected Betis victory over Ferencvaros would eliminate them from Europe this Thursday.
Ange Postecoglou has grown into the hot-seat at Celtic Park and has guided his team up through the Scottish Premiership, back into a title battle, but this is an altogether different task.
Leverkusen have racked up three wins and a draw in their outings so far, scoring 11 goals and conceding just twice in the process. They sit fourth in the Bundesliga.

Our prediction: Bayer Leverkusen v Celtic
Celtic are improving in 2021/22, they have found greater consistency and are more settled into the season than they were at the start of their Europa League campaign.
However, the task ahead of them looks too large for them. A draw would still require them to defeat Betis in their last match of the Europa League group stages, so they must take the game to Leverkusen and attempt to win here.
That is far easier said than done against a team with such a resilient backline and superior quality throughout the side. This looks like the end of the road for the Bhoys.
