On September 28, Celtic received Manchester City at the Celtic Park as both clubs had to face off for a Champions League and this match concluded with each side scoring 3 goals as the scoreboard displayed 3-3 at the end of it all.
This match was one of the most exciting Champions League games in recent times as plenty of goals were scored and there was not any club that had the clear upper hand.
After everything was said and done, both teams had to settle with snatching 1 point each out of this game and even though Celtic FC needed a victory in order for them to begin their march for a higher spot in Group C of the Champions League which consists of: Barcelona, Manchester City, Borussia Monchengladbach and Celtic.
This draw was still a fairly positive result for Celtic as they managed to hold their ground against one of the favorites of their group and Brendan Rodgers had a few things to say after the match was over as the 43 year old Northern Irish manager said:
“I can’t criticize the team, but there are always elements we can be better in. We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score.Apart from the Barcelona game these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance.
“How we defend is what we’ve been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time.Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward.”
This draw allows Celtic FC to have their first point from their Champions League campaign but they will have to start collecting victories in order to keep the dream of advancing through the next rounds alive.
