I must say, although I am a Barcelona fan, had I attended this Barcelona vs. Celtic Champions League match in Glasgow, Scotland at Celtic Park, I would have been found weeping with joy – along with the more than 60,000 supporters – by the sheer fact of the Scottish team beating the men in the red and blue.
This matchup was heavily favored to go the way of the Spaniards, but sure enough this clash took two stones to take down the Iberian Peninsular Giants in this David and Goliath match. This was by no means a two-way street; it was a one-way onto the freeway. The possession of Barcelona’s midfield maestro’s constituted for eighty-four percent of the match, which means, yes, Celtic had 16 percent possession. However, that defensive mindset from the Scots led them to win 2-1.
Have a look at the unbelievable goals from Celtic’s Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt, as well as one of the greatest players ever to play the beautiful game, Lionel Messi.
