Heynckes: Bayern Munchen Can not Underestimate Celtic
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes commemorates his side not to downplay Celtic ahead of their Champions League match on Thursday.
After the defeat in Paris, Bayern have three points equal to Celtic, who beat Anderlecht in the previous game with a 3-0 lead at home.
“We should not make the mistake of underestimating Celtic, the Scottish league champions six times in a row,” Heynckes told a news conference.
“They are strong, unyielding aggressive teams. Last season, for example, in the group stages, they can withstand a draw of two teams such as Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach.
“They are a competitive and experienced team, with a very good coaching figure (Brendan Rodgers), who once coached Liverpool.”
