Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has warned RB Leipzig that they’ll find a different beast waiting for them at Celtic Park on Thursday, compared to the side that capitulated in Germany.
The Hoops of course lost the first meeting between the two sides, with the Bundesliga outfit emerging as 2-0 victors and delivering a big blow to our hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition.
Edouard though thinks that Celtic can put that behind them and offer something far different when they visit this week.
As quoted by The Daily Record, the Frenchman said:
I think will be a totally different game to the match in Germany. There is a good dynamic about the team at the moment and we are in good form at the moment.
We are always working harder to get better and trying to improve our standards to get the wins. It is also a home match for us, so it is going to be totally different [from Germany].
We want to win every match, so that will be the same on Thursday evening against Leipzig.
We know that this is a really important game for us, so we want to go into it with the best team approach and the best mindset.
With Celtic sitting third in the group, three points behind Leipzig, picking up a win would be a huge boost to achieving European football after Christmas.
With a match away to Rosenborg and a home fixture against Salzburg to come, there’s a real opportunity to put serious points on the board in the three remaining games.
Edouard will likely be crucial having scored seven goals in his last seven appearances, part of an 11-goal total this season. He was in excellent form against Hearts on Saturday, netting twice.
Can he provide the attacking threat we need to pick up all three points against Leipzig this week?
