Video: Celtic goals from blistering first half against Real Betis

Celtic took a 2-0 lead over Real Betis thanks to goals from Albian Ajeti and Josip Juranovic. The Hoops took the lead in Seville after 15 minutes as a breakaway move from Jota saw Ajeti put the ball in the net only for it to be ruled out for a suspected handball. However, the German VAR Assistant told the Croatian ref that the goal should stand. It was a deserved lead for Ange Postecoglou’s side after an impressive start against the La Liga side.

Then Ajeti and Jota were at it again with the Swiss striker going through on goal against an on-rushing Claudio Bravo. The ex-Barca & Man City slid into the tackle and left Ajeti in a heap. Fullback Juranovic and dispatched a penalty into the corner, leaving Bravo with no chance.

Unfortunately, Celtic would do as they tend to in Europe and make things more difficult for ourselves.
