Vasilis Barkas has allowed Midtjylland back into the game after an Evander free-kick was fired beyond him in the Celtic goal. The Greek goalkeeper appeared to back out of the save as the ball ricocheted off the post and into the net to restore parity.
Celtic can feel aggrieved as the freekick was given after Stephen Welsh won the ball but sent Paulinho flying in a full-blooded tackle. However, the goalkeeper should have done so much better. Celtic need to get themselves back ahead and there are options on the bench if the manager needs them.
Midtjylland equalise through a howler from Barkas! 😮

Michael Stewart didn’t mince his words, criticising the player for failing to stop the ball.
