Brendan Rodgers: 'I'd rather lose playing the Celtic way than sit and defend for 90 minutes and still lose'

In other circumstances, it would be no revelation if Celtic exhibited the symptoms of shell shock as a consequence of their European expeditions. In the space of 15 months they have endured defeat by the most minuscule opponents they have faced at this level – Lincoln Red Imps – along with their worst European loss, a 7-0 drubbing by Barcelona in the Nou Camp, and their heaviest home reverse, a 5-0 beating by Paris St-Germain. Their latest pounding was administered by Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, when the 3-0 score belied a contest that easily could have finished with the Bundesliga side ahead by double that margin. Brendan Rodgers and his players, however, are able to sustain such wounds without the legacy of disfiguring scar tissue because of their bipolar existence. If they prevail against Hibernian in the Betfred Scottish League Cup semi-final at Hampden Park on Saturday, the Hoops will record their 60th successive unbeaten domestic fixture, a sequence that has included half-a-dozen wins over Rangers, including two 5-1 drubbings, the second of which set a record for a Celtic victory at Ibrox. The accumulation of home comforts includes the three Scottish honours but, despite total command of their native domain, Celtic are cast in the role of impoverished neighbours compared to Champions League powers such as Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich. It is not impossible for them to get beyond the group stage, as Gordon Strachan and Neil Lennon proved during their time in charge in the east end of Glasgow, but the chances of a repeat grow slimmer with every transfer deal priced in hundreds of millions of euros amongst the bloated ‘big five’ nations. Celtic suffered a beating in Bavaria Credit: REUTERS So it was that, while their heroes were chasing shadows against Bayern, the Celtic support kept up a constant stream of choruses in their lofty perch at the Allianz Arena. They were celebrating the simple fact of being present, events on the field notwithstanding. Rodgers, meanwhile, has a refrain of his own, to the effect that his squad are in a constant process of development. The evidence in his favour is that, after the competitive hiatus under his predecessor, Ronny Deila, the Northern Irishman has twice successfully steered his men through half-a-dozen hazardous qualifiers and, thanks to a merited 3-0 victory over Anderlecht in Brussels, Celtic are favourites to secure third spot in Group B and a place in the Europa League, where the demands are likely to be more congenial. It was this context which allowed Rodgers to be bullish in the aftermath of Wednesday’s defeat, despite the decision not to alter his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, even when it meant a match-up with a Bayern side who were better equipped in every position – and who had been incited to demonstrate the mismatch by Jupp Heyncke’s return for a third spell in charge. The concession of three cheap goals and the narrow avoidance of greater damage prompted charges of naivety or presumption directed towards Rodgers but his retort was that his defenders were below par and that, if defeat was always the probable outcome, he would rather supervise an expansive game than a protective huddle. Bendan Rodgers watches his team take a beating Credit: REUTERS “I’d rather lose playing how we want to play and how we want to work, as opposed to sit in and defending for 90 minutes and still lose if that’s the case,” he said. Of course, the proposition can be advanced that if Celtic had concentrated on closing available space in their own half, thus narrowing the percentages in Bayern’s favour, they would have created the circumstances which can produce menacing counterattacks. Rodgers bridled somewhat when it was suggested that he could have been more pragmatic. “There was nothing about being pragmatic for the goals we conceded. We didn’t defend our box well enough from crosses coming in – we can do better with those,” he said. Celtic’s destiny in the group is unlikely to be affected by Bayern’s Halloween visit to Glasgow, but they will be expected to make a better fist of it on their own turf. Asked if he believed that he and his team-mates had the capacity to hurt Heynckes’s players at home, goalkeeper Craig Gordon said: “We are going to try but it is a big task. “They have got some world-class players and they will be looking to go quite far into this competition and try to win it. It was always going to be difficult. There are better teams than us who will be beaten 3-0 in Munich.” That may be true, but another drubbing at home, such as was inflicted by PSG, would be markedly less palatable. Pragmatism is not usually romantic but, against manifestly superior opponents, it need not be shorn of virtue.

Barcelona, Man United, PSG Remain Perfect as UCL Group Stage Hits Halfway Point

Three sides–Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United–won a third Champions League game out of three to take charge of their respective groups, but Chelsea missed the opportunity to do likewise by throwing away a 2-0 lead before fighting back to draw 3-3 against Roma.

Barcelona had Gerard Pique sent off before halftime, collecting a second yellow card for deliberately flicking the ball over the line with his hand, but still beat Olympiakos 3-1. An own-goal from Dimitrios Nikolaou after a Gerard Deulofeu cross deflected in off him was enough send Barcelona on its way. Lionel Messi added a second with a wonderful free kick and then Lucas Digne drove in a third off Messi's assist. Nikolaou scored a last-minute goal at the right end to complete the scoring.

In the other game in the group, a late Mario Mandzukic goal gave Juventus the winner as it came from behind to beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1.

PSG stayed perfect a straightforward 4-0 victory over Anderlecht with goals from Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Angel Di Maria. After its defeat in Paris and the replacement of Carlo Ancelotti with Jupp Heynckes, Bayern Munich got back on track with a 3-0 win over Celtic.

Benfica fielded the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history in Mile Svilar, and he was at fault in conceding the only goal of the game, with the 18-year-old carrying 19-year-old Marcus Rashford's free kick over the line 20 minutes into the second half.

Basel is three points behind United for second in the group after Taulant Xhaka’s long-range strike set it on the way to a 2-0 win over CSKA Moscow. Dmitri Oberlin added a late second, off Xhaka's assist, to account for the other goal.

Chelsea looked as though it would maintain a perfect record as it raced into a 2-0 lead against Roma, but then conceded three before an Eden Hazard header, his second goal of the game, made it 3-3.

Atletico was held 0-0 away to Qarabag, despite the Azerbaijani champions having Dino Ndlovu sent off after collecting a second yellow card for diving with 15 minutes remaining.

Here are three thoughts on the day in the Champions League, which has had its group stage reach the halfway point:

Chelsea, Roma don't disappoint, but both left disappointed

Chelsea had been superb in winning 2-1 away to Atletico Madrid in its last Champions League game, but since then it has lost twice in the Premier League and it was badly exposed defensively here. Antonio Conte, perhaps alarmed by recent laxity and reacting to the injuries to N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, moved David Luiz into midfield, and was rewarded with the opening goal from the Brazilian, who swept a first-time shot just inside the post from 25 yards.

Conte had his team sit off and look to strike on the break, but defensively it was never entirely convincing. Roma had its chances before Eden Hazard, having begun a break, finished it off as Alvaro Morata’s shot was deflected into his path. Within two minutes, though, Roma had one back, with Aleksandar Kolarov tearing past Cesar Azpilicueta before lashing a deflected shot into the roof of the net.

Edin Dezko smashed in a brilliant volley to level, before the two former Manchester City players combined to give Roma the lead, Kolarov crossing for Dzeko to head in his second. Conte had removed David Luiz for Pedro by then, looking to take the stem the flow in Roma’s favor, and it was the substitute who set up the equalizer, crossing for Hazard to guide in a deft header. Chelsea still leads the group, two points clear of Roma and five ahead of Atletico, but there were worrying signs here, and both sides will rue dropping points they could have had.

Bayern continues picking up pieces under Heynckes

Bayern Munich's recovery under Jupp Heynckes continues apace. It wasn’t just results that brought the end for Carlo Ancelotti but a general sense of lack of desire about the club, culminating in the 3-0 defeat to PSG in their last Champions League game. Heynckes, now 72 and in his fourth spell in charge of the club, has a remarkable record in the Champions League having won it twice, and he reached the final in his three previous seasons with Bayern.

Heynckes has begun the process of re-instilling discipline and results have already picked up. The 5-0 win over Freiburg on Saturday was followed by a comfortable demolition of Celtic Wednesday. Thiago Alcantara was perhaps a little unlucky to have goal ruled out after it was, probably wrongly, deemed to have gone out of play before Robert Lewandowski cut it back to him, but the goals soon flowed.

Thomas Muller followed in after Craig Gordon had saved a Lewandowski header to become the first German to reach 40 Champions League goals, and then Joshua Kimmich guided a header from a Kingsley Coman cross over the goalkeeper. Another cross brought the third goal, with Mats Hummels nodding in an Arjen Robben corner to secure the points in a match the cemented Bayern's place in second behind PSG.

Nervous Juventus recovers, remains on course for knockout stage

With Barcelona likely to top the group, this game and the return fixture in two weeks, always looked like being vital in determining who goes through in second. As it was Juve that took the advantage with a narrow win, but it was far from convincing.

The club's run of 57 games unbeaten at home came to an end on Saturday when it lost to Lazio, and it began nervously here, falling behind after 12 minutes to an Alex Sandro own-goal. He was unfortunate that the ball struck him having bounced off Gianluigi Buffon, but it had been his error, failing to cut out a Bruno Fernandes ball to Gelson Martins, that led to the initial save. Miralem Pjanic leveled before halftime with a precise free kick and with six minutes to go the substitute Douglas Costa crossed for Mario Mandzukic to head in for the eventual winner. Another such result would keep Juventus, twice a finalist in the last three seasons, on course to go through.
