Celtic vs RB Leipzig live stream and match preview

Looking for a Celtic vs RB Leipzig live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.

Celtic (opens in new tab) welcome RB Leipzig (opens in new tab) to Celtic Park as they go out in search of their first win in this season's Champions League.

The hosts will also be out to avenge last week's 3-1 defeat to Leipzig in the reverse fixture. Ange Postecoglou's side made it eight wins from nine in the Scottish Premiership this term by winning 2-1 at St. Johnstone on Saturday, but they've picked up only point in Europe so far. Celtic would help themselves by tightening up at the back: they've kept just one clean sheet in their last 23 European games.

Leipzig's victory over the Bhoys was their first in the 2022/23 Champions League. It was also their third from six outings in all competitions under Marco Rose. However, the Red Bulls have lost on both of their previous European trips to Scottish opposition (2-1 to Celtic in in the group stage of the 2017/18 Europa League and 3-1 to Rangers in the semi-finals of the same competition last term).

Team news

Celtic captain Callum McGregor was injured in last week's loss to Leipzig and joins Yosuke Ideguchi and Carl Starfelt on the sidelines. Jota is a doubt, but Cameron Carter-Vickers, Aaron Mooy and David Turnbull could all be available again.

Leipzig also lost their skipper in the reverse meeting: goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi has been ruled out for the season, with Janis Blaswich set to take his place between the sticks. The visitors remain without Lukas Klostermann, Konrad Laimer and Daniel Olmo, while Marcel Halstenberg misses out through a minor injury.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Champions League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
