Celtic have just one point to their name at the midway moment of the UCL group stage, but a victory over RB Leipzig today could change everything. Marco Rose's team beat the Bhoys 3-1 last week, however, Celtic Park in full voice always endows the Scottish champions with an extra yard of pace and limitless self-belief. Read on to find out how to watch a Celtic vs Leipzig live stream and catch the Champions League online, no matter where you are in the world.

Jota, Celtic's scorer last week, misses out with an injury he picked up at the weekend. Daizen Maeda is the man who replaces him on the right of a front three. In central midfield, Sead Hakšabanović comes in for skipper Callum McGregor, who limped off before the interval in Leipzig.

The Red Bulls are also without their captain, Péter Gulácsi, after he suffered an ACL injury during last week's meeting. Janis Blaswich starts between the sticks instead. Amadou Haidara comes in for Kevin Kampl in the only other change to Leipzig's starting lineup.

Creating opportunities and failing to take them has been a running theme of Celtic's Champions League campaign, but they could have few complaints against Leipzig a week ago. The German side would have been 5-1 winners if it hadn’t been for two tight offside calls, and Ange Postecoglou's men had absolutely no answer for the rampant Christopher Nkunku.

The return of center-back Cameron Carter-Vickers is a welcome boost, while fears over the absence of McGregor have been allayed by the eye-catching display of his understudy Hakšabanović at the weekend. 

Leipzig, who have been extremely poor away from home all season, also have to cope without their leader. However, their attacking riches are more than capable of making up for any resulting vulnerabilities at the back. 

The hosts realistically need three points to keep their knockout stage hopes alive. Follow our guide to get a Celtic vs Leipzig live stream and watch the Champions League online from anywhere today.

We've set out how you can live stream Celtic vs Leipzig in a number of countries around the world.
