Official UEFA CL Group Stage: Celtic v SL Benfica Thread

No time for match previews, the big game starts in 45 times and the starting lineup is revealed:

----------------Quim--------------
Nélson------Luisão--RR---------Léo
-----------Petit---Katsouranis-----
------------Nuno Assis------------
Miccoli------Nuno gomes-----Simão

Celtic is coming to Lisbon motivated due to their domestic form and, obviously, their win over us in the previous game. At least 10000 Celtic fans will be inside the stadium so we better have our voices ready to outsing them

Here's hoping for a memorable match, 3-1 is my prediction.

HT: 2-0. Poor start from celtic, specially caldwell. Apart from that - I think the game has been relitavly even judging by the radio.

I'm watching the Arsenal game but saw the highlights of Benfica at HT. It seems to me that Celtic is the friendliest team that Benfica has played so far this season.

This was definitely more like it. Too bad we missed so many chances up front.

Again, another sign that the team is coming together, but I'm far from sold.

Good performances by Simão and Nélson, who's finally back.

Apart from the result, I hope Celtic fans have enjoyed the trip and the beer.

3-0 again. We just can't do it any other way, can we?

I wasn't impressed at all win our game. Yes, we were clearly superior, but Celtic's defense was a joke and if we had taken the chances the result would be humiliating for them.

I'm not convinced.

I know here, ESPN broadcasts most games depending on the teams performing; they prefer English teams. So they broadcasted Man Utd during the last matchday so today they chose Arsenal. It was a pretty interesting match; Arsenal just had no luck with all they opportunities they created

but if Lehmann didn't had the luck of deflecting that ball from Vágner Love the story would have been much different

You also had the fact that Rosicky pretty much handed him the ball. However, I do agree that 20 year old Russian keeper is class.
