    HT. 1-1

    Benfica playing well.Salvio owning Celtic single handedly. Matic also having a good game. Andre Almeida was decent.
    Celtic are fantastic at set pieces. Hence thats how rhey scored on Barca and Benfica, but Celtic look like crap. Sloppy defending, no fluidity to their play, which isn't surprising, they're obvisously playing for a tie.

    If we beat Celtic, then tie Barca and Spartak beats Celtic, we're through, are we not?

    Jardel replaces Salvio. Great contribution by Salvio. That's the player I remember when he was loaned to us.

    Guys, even if we don't win barca, we are still going to pass the group stage to the round of 16 if Spartak win Celtic

    Celtic have 2 midfielders suspended for the Spartak game! Which benefits Spartak and Benfica. PureHeroin is right. Benfica can go through 2 ways. Benfica can LOSE to Barça and go through if Spartak beats Celtic because we're tied to Celtics in points but beat them in Portugal and tied in Glasgow. Or if we tie Barça and Celtic tie or lose to Spartak.
