Celtic are set to take the fight to Bayern Munich at their home – the Allianz Arena. The game is slated for Wednesday October 18, and it would be the first time Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes oversees a UEFA Champions League game since lifting the title in 2013 with the German club.
Heynckes ended his Bayern coaching career on an excellent note years back when he did the treble. He won the Champions League for Bayern and helped form a stable side that Pep Guardiola inherited. The Spaniard would go on to spend three successful years before exiting. Guardiola did not have as much success as his previous club Barcelona, however, the Catalan manager won the league the three years and helped the club to the Champions League semifinals three straight times.
