RB Leipzig v Celtic live stream and match preview
Looking for a RB Leipzig v Celtic live stream? We have what you need.
Both teams will seek their first Champions League victory of the season when RB Leipzig host Celtic on Wednesday.
The Bundesliga side got off to a bad start in Group F, losing their first two games to Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid.
Celtic responded to a Matchday 1 loss to the defending champions to draw 1-1 with Shakhtar last time out.
Leipzig also got off to a slow start in the Bundesliga, picking up 11 points from eight games to sit in 11th place.
Head coach Domenico Tedesco was sacked last month after a 4-0 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, and his successor Marco Rose got off to an inconsistent start.
A 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund was a dream start, but it was followed by back-to-back defeats, 2-0 to Real Madrid and 3-0 to Borussia Mönchengladbach, before a 4-0 win over Bochum on Saturday.
Celtic have also been in a slump recently. The loss to Real and the draw to Shakhtar were followed by a shock 2-0 loss to St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership.
They bounced back by beating Motherwell 2-1 on Saturday, but there was a nervous ending after Callum McGregor was red carded.
Leipzig were without Yussuf Poulsen for the match against Bochum due to illness, while Konrad Laimer, Dani Olmo and Lukas Klostermann are injured.
Giorgios Giakoumakis and Cameron Carter-Vickers are doubtful of Celtic injuries after missing Motherwell, while Carl Starfelt is out.
RB Leipzig: WLLWL

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 5.45pm BST on Wednesday, October 5 and it is shown on BTSport 4 (opens in a new tab) in Great Britain. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League matches, unfortunately your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, 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 the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
