Celtic earned a vital victory in their midweek Europa League game with one of the comfortable football results. After losing their first two games, they needed nothing short of a win to harbour any hopes of a place in the knockout stage. After an uneventful first half, Kyogo Furuhashi continued his brilliant form with his ninth goal for the club. Callum McGregor failed to score from the penalty spot but Roofe made sure of the result with a neat finish. Although he did not get on the scoresheet, Jota played an important role in their win.

Man of the Match: Jota
Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: “It was a really good performance, we started well, put them under pressure and took control of the game. We created some good chances, didn’t allow them too many and, in the second half, it opened up for us.” he added. “It was a brilliant first goal and we should have had a few more afterwards. I’m pleased for the players; they got the reward for being really disciplined. It was great to see.”
