Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (da Luz) — Lisboa
Referee:‬ V. Kassai‎
Attendance:‬ 47065‎
Yellow Card André Almeida
Yellow Card Victor Wanyama
Oh dear. The key man is going to be missing for Celtic's crunch match with Spartak after that booking. They'll miss him at Parkhead - but can they get the business done in these closing stages?
Yellow Card L. Melgarejo
Goal Ezequiel Garay
GOAL! Benfica do get their goal, and you can't say it has come against the run of play. Garay has got it with a thumping volley after Luisao beat Ambrose to a cross in the area, and headed across to his central defensive partner.
Yellow Card Joe Ledley
Ledley wins plenty of the ball, but the tackle is aggressive and untidy. Probably a fair booking.
Yellow Card Georgios Samaras
Samaras has a rough couple of minutes there. He gives away a foul for a sloppy tackle which leads to a free-kick for the hosts which is well cleared. He then earns a yellow card for dissent after giving away another foul from the subsequent counter-attack.
Goal Georgios Samaras
GOAL! YES THEY CAN! Samaras heads home from a Charlie Mulgrew corner. It's so, so easy for Celtic. An in-swinging corner from Mulgrew is met by the unmarked Greek striker at the far post and he nods down into the net. And as it stands, the Bhoys are going through!
Goal Ola John
GOAL! Benfica have the lead, what a terrible start for Celtic. After all their hard work and defending against Barcelona, Celtic will be really annoyed with that. They carelessly gave the ball away down the left and dealt with the cross poorly, leaving Ola John with a half-volley inside the area which he slammed past Forster.
