UCL Benfica x Celtic

We hosted and beat Celtic yesterday at Luz, goals came from Ola John who is starting to become a BEAST and Garay after Samaras had tied up still in the first half.

We're not second in the group but at the mercy of Barcelona who we play next away.

we had a solid game and could / should have scored a couple more, specially during the 2nd half. So many misses and even hitting the bar

salvio had a very eye catchy game, and garay's goal was mint , pure striker shot . Good to see andré almeida performing well, and the same with ola john. Such a shame that matic left injured, he was playing well, hope its nothing serious....

oh well, now at least we've granted our presence in the Europa League. I would rather see us advancing from the group, but the challenge ahead of us is quite demanding.....winning or drawing against barcelona at the nou camp, depending on whether celtic win or lose with spartak. Yes, i dont believe celtic will lose home with spartak, not with the results they have been achieving so far in CL

looking back, it all comes down to that away game in russia, we should have granted a draw there, such a shame....oh well, let hold our heads high, give barcelona a fight and hope for the best
