The noise level is extremely high. Celtic Park is known for its atmosphere. The 60,000 fans are singing throughout the game. Especially in international games, support for "Bhoys" is extreme. And thank you with passionate struggle spirit on the grass. This experience has also made RB Leipzig's professionals this Thursday night defeat 1: 2 (0: 1). So, was not it enough on the grass when thinking about the admitted goals?
"I think we played a very good second half – with a defense of the supposed hosts – we went out with the second half paycheck and I thought it dominated the game until the 1-0 win, only half played the opponent, it was the behavior of the two concessions, "coach Ralf Rangnick later said. He forgot that his team had admitted the first goal in the eleventh minute by Kieran Tierney.
The joy lasted only 45 seconds
While the RB players' t-shirts in royal blue and the trousers shining on Knatschgelb, the game of the hockey team in the first half was pale enough. Of course, the failure of international Timo Werner, Yussuf Poulsen and Emil Forsberg was bitter. But even they would not have scored – because there was a lack of creativity in the construction. The joy after the temporary balancing by Jean-Kevin Augustin (78th minute), the side of the Bundesliga could only be enjoyed very soon. 45 seconds later, Odsonne Edouard (79th) was set for Celtic 2-1. "We were definitely better, we had quality in the race and had tremendous things that bother me greatly," said Marcel Sabitzer.
The disappointment is understandable: Celtic closed with two excellent games on the table of Group B after the points to Leipzig (6), behind the dominant RB Salzburg leader (12). Team coach Rangnick should not allow himself a mistake.
Frankfurt and Leverkusen cancel the tickets ahead of time
