The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern believe their side were a little lucky to escape their game with Hibernian over the course of the weekend with a point. 

Indeed, while the Bhoys in the bar will pretty much never be happy with just a point, they do think it was probably a fair result, if not a lucky one.

So, comments sourced in the Daily Record from Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben suggest the green and white cause can’t rely on their luck too much longer.

The Dutchman has been speaking ahead of the double-header between the two clubs after the international break after the Germans lost and the Scots on during the last matchday, making the group a lot closer than many initially would have thought.

Bayern and the Hoops are now level on points ahead of the games, with Brendan Rodgers’ men travelling to the Allianz Arena on October 18th to kick off the meetings.

Though Die Rotten lost 0-3 to PSG in their last European game – leading to Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking – Robben has vowed that his side will not be entering a state of free fall and are out to get the Bhoys.

“We have not lost hope of winning the group. PSG have of course made a great start and put themselves in a great position but we are only two games in and still have to play them again”, said the Dutchman.

“Though the only focus at the moment is winning the next game against Celtic.

“We are on the same number of points – and the aim is to start pulling away from them. If we win the two games against Celtic then we can start thinking about winning the group again.”

Landlord’s Verdict:

If Celtic can make the most of Bayern’s state of relative disarray with an early goal in Bavaria, the Hoops really can start to dream.

It’ll be a big ask, though this is surely the best time to get at Bayern, despite Robben’s comments.

Thoughts?
