McGregor swings the corner into the box and although his initial cross is missed by all the Celtic players, Forrest gets a chance from the follow-up but it is deflected well wide of the target.
Celtic are happy to just keep possession and slow the pace of the game down now. Leipzig are getting frustrated though and they are trying to pressure the home side into making mistakes.
Leipzig have gotten sloppy in their tackles in the last few minutes and have given away a free-kick in a dangerous position on the right wing. Forrest whips the ball into the box, but his cross is met by the first man and cleared away without any issue.
Mukiele is down at the edge of the pitch after a race to the ball against Tierney. The right-back won and put the ball out, but Tierney accidentally caught him as he tried to jump over him.
Bruma looks very dangerous for Leipzig when he is given the opportunity to run at his defender. His weaving run opened up the chance for Sabitzer to cross the ball into the box, but the end product is poor and the chance comes to nothing.
Leipzig have struggled since conceding that early goal, and are failing to string a series of passes together. Every time they try, there is a Celtic player in the way to block it.
Augustin is shown the yellow card for a rash challenge on Gordon as he tried to win the ball in the box and instead ends up kicking the goalkeeper.
Some quick thinking there from Forrest gives Celtic the advantage and he gets past his defender easily to whip in the cross.
It misses all the players in the box, but Tierney is there and he hits his shot low into the bottom-right corner. As soon as one of their midfielders gets possession, they are quick to close them down and move the play upfield as they chase an early opening goal.
Another great piece of build-up play from Leipzig as Cunha backheels the ball to Bruma on the edge of the box, and he puts the cross in first time, but he hits the first man and sees it go out for a corner which comes to nothing for the German side.
Leipzig look bright in the opening exchanges between the two sides. And Leipzig gets us underway at Celtic Park! The players are out on the pitch now, following the 10 minute light show that lit up the stadium before the kick-off at Celtic Park.
Celtic have struggled in their Europa League campaign so far, only registering one win in their three games which came on the first match day, and currently sit third in Group B with only three points.
Since losing their last European game two weeks ago to Leipzig, though, the home side have been in great form, winning all three matches, scoring 13 goals in that time and conceding none.
Leipzig are enjoying more success in Europe than their opponents, winning two of their three games and sitting in second place. Since their win over Celtic, the German side are unbeaten, a run which has moved them into fourth place in the Bundesliga, only five points behing leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Their aggression proved successful as they managed to counter-attack Leipzig high up the pitch utilising the pace and intensity brought in by the inclusion of Scott Sinclair and Tom Rogic.
Konrad Laimer did not track the run of Tom Rogic which allowed him a free shot. Not only did Celtic press in small pockets and groups but resembled a set of synchronized swimmers in their defensive stance.
They did not allow RB Leipzig to rest and gain any momentum throughout the game. Pressing as a team allowed for energy conservation and cornered the RB Leipzig players.
They were unable to play with the freedom they are used to against teams that sit back and counter. As Dayot Upamecano plays the ball out wide to Konrad Laimer, we can see Celtic hold the perfect shape and start drifting towards the defensive midfielder.
As Laimer tries to dribble down the flank, we can see James Forrest attempt to close him down and forces him to pass it to Bruma but once again is intercepted by Dedryck Boyata.
Marcel Halstenberg is next to receive the ball but is immediately surrounded by a number of Celtic players. Having seen Celtic F. C use a low block against RB Leipzig three weeks ago, Leipzig piled on the pressure and caused the Celtic defenders all sorts of trouble.
Leipzig persisted with their high defensive line which correlates to their high-energy style of play of pushing high up the pitch. C persisted with their low block but were much more compact and rigid this time round.
This forced Leipzig to play out from the back and use their wing-backs but the discipline from the two Celtic wing-backs and impeccable tracking back from Scott Sinclair and James Forrest neutralised the threat from the wide areas.
During the last minute of stoppage time, RB Leipzig resorted to a long ball in the hopes of getting a knockdown and creating an equalising opportunity.
Mikael Lustig battles Halstenberg in an aerial dual and is successful in removing the danger. Even after they lose the ball, the Leipzig forwards were not switched on which gave the Celtic defenders time to initiate another lightning-quick counter-attack.
Rodgers instructed his wingers to stay narrow and wing-backs to press in tandem with the wingers; Keiran Tierney paired with Scott Sinclair and Mikael Lustig with James Forrest.
Scott Sinclair and James Forrest were outstanding all evening. Their immense work rate and desire to track back and contribute offensively contributed to their overall success.
