If above is accurate :shock: it makes Celtic's win over their arch rivals (Rangers) even more impressive.

Tipping Celtic to take something from Real Madrid in a scoring draw (would be amazed if it was 0-0) so 3-3 looks the logical way to go. Should be an open game with lots of chances. Go Ange's Bhoys!

Oh well, got 'half' the prediction correct- that Real Madrid would score 3 goals! ;-)

Though I never watched game I heard it was a game of two halves and Celtic didn't take their chances the first 45 minutes.

You get punished at this level and that was always my fear. I'm confident Ange will get them firing again, though will be mighty hard making any inroads in the CL and this sore result proves it. The main thing is the club continues to improve under the tenure of Ange and the supporters show him their loyalty and don't turn against him.

Celtic were “good” in the first half in as much as Real never really put their foot on the pedal. It didn’t take much revving in the second half to put away 3 and really, by then, Celtics adrenaline had worn off and they were pooped. A good experience for the players to see how much deeper you need to dig to get over to the next level, which for them, was a coasting Real Madrid

That the the way I saw it as well. Unlucky not to score first half but overwhelmed second half.

Forgot about Tuesday night football. I see Chelsea didn’t score ? why didn’t they play Sterling and Aubameyang. Half a billion on a shite defence, what’s Chalobah done wrong.
