Here’s why Celtic are set to do a Champions League double against Bayern Munich

Celtic will do the double against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and it's all thanks to Jupp Heynckes

Celtic were dealt no favours when they were drawn alongside PSG, Bayern Munich and Anderlecht in the Champions League.

An opening day win against Anderlecht was followed up by a thumping at the hands of PSG leaving Brendan Rodgers’ side third in Group B.

But don’t worry Celtic fans, you’re pretty much guaranteed to pick up six points from your two games against Bayern.

The reason?

It’s all to do with Bayern’s recent appointment of 72-year-old Jupp Heynckes.

Now Heynckes’ pedigree can’t be doubted. He won the treble in his last spell as Bayern boss and has lifted the Bundesliga on seven occasions as a player and manager.

However he turns into Frank de Boer when managing against Scottish sides.

Okay, maybe that’s a tad harsh.

But Heynckes has struggled against Scottish clubs more than any other during his long and illustrious career, as highlighted by Club Elo.

In fairness, most of his troubles came against Dundee United while managing Borussia Monchengladbach more than 30 years ago.

But don’t let that dampen your spirits Celtic fans.

Form is temporary, (Scottish) class is permanent.
