ht: Celtic 2 x Sporting 1
Sporting had possession for the first 20 minutes, looking fluid in midfield and comfortable on the ball. Os Le§nes took the lead on a long shot that deflected of Celtic defender (Balde) and went in. (sorry did not catch the name of the scorer.)
Celtic hit back on a goal by Irish international Aiden McGeedy (shot from outside the area that beat goalie Ricardo to his lower right hand corner. Wales internationist John Hartson put Celtic ahead when he timed his run onto a pass from Petrov to break in alone on Ricardo (re-play showed Hartson was on-side, and Sporting didn't dispute it). The goalie did well to block Hartson's first attempt, but the rebound broke to Hartson who made no mistake the second time.
