For those who haven’t seen yesterday’s match on BT Sport, including just over 50,000 supporters at Celtic Park creating what was an incredible atmosphere – on a Tuesday afternoon – here are the match highlights for you to enjoy.
Some post match coverage on The Celtic Star last night including Sandman’s Definitive Ratings, David Potter’s usual post-match thoughts and Conall McGinty’s view from over in Ireland. Links are available below. We also consider Celtic chances of getting out of the Group after two defeats and one victory at the the halfway stage.
To progress Celtic will need to win in Hungary against yesterday’s opponents and if we can’t do that then we probably deserve to be eliminated. But let’s not do a BBC Scotland and go all ‘glass half full’, when talking about Celtic (it’s relentless with these guys these days). Six points against Ferencvaros then it’s a matter of seeing how the other head to heads between Real Betis and Bayer Leverkusen go. We’d probably prefer the Germans to pick up the six points which would mean Leverkusen would have 12 points, Celtic and Real Betis 6 each and Ferencvaros 0.
You would expect Betis to beat the Hungarians in Seville so they’d be coming to Celtic Park with 9 points. Can we get anything against Leverkusen away, a very unlikely draw would be an amazing result, but we are likely to be trailing Betis by three points and looking to a 2-0 win to beat them on the head to head. Lots of ifs and buts but that’s the most likely escape route for Celtic into the Europa League knock-out rounds.
