Not the best game in the world and you could tell from the players it was a nervous performance. But we won 1-0, we more than deserved the win tonight there can be no argument we deserve the 1-0. More important we didn’t lose an away goal and I really think we will score over there whilst starting Griffiths.
FK Qarabag did really well to stop us tonight, their tactics were good and they gave us nothing, Ciftci missed a sitter, Virgil Van Dijk headed over when it was easier to score, Qarabag were kept to long distance shots, they had a lot of the ball in the first half but as the 2nd half progressed you could visibly see them get tired, this can only be a good thing in the away leg as our fitness was still superb into the 4 minutes added on
Celtic got the goal we needed on 82 minutes, Commons who just came on had a corner over at the north stand and his cross was met at the near post by Boyata who didn’t miss, mayhem ensued and it was a case of ‘Let hang on to 1-0’ Thankfully we held out. I don’t have too much to write or share. My man of the match was Boyata as he won everything and got the goal.
Goal thanks to Twitter user, sorry forgot to tag name in
I will say Celtic TV didn’t play well tonight, this game should have been made available for others worldwide. We now have a league game before a long travel to Qarabag in Azerbaijan. I think Ronny got away with a big mistake tonight, Griffiths should start, he is scoring goals and sadly Ciftci can’t buy a goal, tonight he missed a total sitter. But no judging, we go with 1-0 and we know we can score over there. Was a hard night and it could have went either way in the end, so we take this and we look forward to next week and the ability to watch the game on TV!
