Can Celtic get that third win which will see them maintaining an interest in European competition until the final game in this the toughest of all Champions League groups this season. Just look at how easy a group Leicester got.
If Celtic win they will be very interested in events in Germany. If Manchester City get an away win Celtic will be overwhelming favourites for the Europa League spot.
If Borussia win then Celtic would be faced with winning in Manchester to take them through to the Champions league knock-out stages.
If Celtic win and the other game is drawn then that would be the worst outcome for a Celtic side that would have just beaten the world’s best club side.
