CEL vs LEV Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Celtic vs Leverkusen Europa League Live Score October 1


CEL vs LEV Dream11: Celtic lost several players due to injury and a poor transfer window means there are some extenuating circumstances for their indifferent start to the campaign but the Bhoys could do with picking up in their consistency. A 4-3 loss away to Real Betis, after being two goals up, will be an immense frustration and they sit sixth in the league table, six points adrift of league leaders and Old Firm rivals Rangers already. They come up against a strong Bayer Leverkusen side that are really starting to witness Moussa Diaby flourish in their front-three; a player could easily be among the best in Europe in a few years time. They come into this on the back of a victory at home to Mainz and they sit second in the Bundesliga table. The visitors will come into this as the relatively comfortable favourites.

Date: October 1, Friday
Kick-Off: 12:30 AM (IST)
Venue: Celtic Park, Glasgow
