A win over Dundee put the Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern in a good mood over the course of the weekend, ahead of the club’s huge Champions League clash with Bayern Munich in just a few days.
Indeed, with Brendan Rodgers’ men having won 0-3 away at Anderlecht last time out, the Bhoys in the bar are confident their beloved Hoops can go to the Allianz Arena and get a result.
In fact, even more so, following reports from the Scottish Sun.
According to their report, Javi Martinez is due to miss Celtic’s visit on Wednesday after picking up a shoulder injury over the course of the weekend, a boost for the travelling Scots. Able to operate in either defence or midfield, the Spaniard will be a huge loss to the German champions.
“Javi will miss the game against Celtic. It is a concern”, said Jupp Heynckes as quoted in the Sun.
“He’s a tough boy and never usually asks to come off.”
Furthermore, the report also claims Arturo Vidal is a doubt for midweek, much to the delight of the punters clad in green and white.
While there is so much quality on offer in Bavaria, potentially losing Martinez and Vidal is a huge blow for Bayern, who aren’t exactly in the best of shape right now.
It’s hard to see there being a better chance of beating Bayern in their own backyard for the Bhoys.
