Jota misses out as Kyogo leads line for Celtic against RB Leipzig SNS Group

Celtic winger Jota is out of the Champions League clash with RB Leipzig in Glasgow as Kyogo returns to lead the line.

Ange Postecoglou has named the Japan international as the focal point of a front three that also includes Daizen Maeda and Liel Abada.

Joe Hart starts in goals behind a back four of Josip Juranovic, Moritz Jenz, Greg Taylor and captian Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley are in a midfield three with Sead Haksabanovic behind the forward line.

A win for Celtic against the Bundesliga side would be a major boost to their hopes of reaching the last-16 of Europe’s flagship competition for the first time in a decade.

Leipzig won last week’s game between the sides 3-1 to record their first win of the group stages.

However, Celtic know that if they can win their next two games, both at home, then they will guarantee qualification for the knockout stages if Real Madrid also win both of their next two games.

Celtic last reached the last-16 of the Champions League in the 2012/13 season following a famous 2-1 victory over Barcelona in the groups.
