HYS: Should Brendan Rodgers stick with a back three against RB Leipzig?

Celtic take on the second Red Bull-owned team in their Europa League group on Thursday with a trip to Leipzig, who are currently fifth in the German Bundesliga.

Avoiding a loss could be crucial for Brendan Rodgers’ men, as Leipzig and RB Salzburg would then both be at least three points ahead of the Bhoys in Group B.

However, the Northern Irish boss should learn from the 3-1 loss to Salzburg in Austria and ditch the back three that he also used in the win over Hibernian on Saturday.

Luckily for Rodgers and the Hoops, Odsonne Edouard was on form against Hibs to ensure that Celtic stayed ahead towards the end of the tie, but after conceding twice they should now revert back to a more simple back four against Leipzig.

As well as allowing for more bodies in midfield, a back four would solve the problem of whether to play full-backs or wingers at wing-back and something like a 4-5-1 would provide far more protection whilst giving the Bhoys a chance to counter.

So, Celtic fans, would you like to see Rodgers continue with the back three or should he ditch it on Thursday? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
