Celtic scored 14 seconds after conceding to secure a dramatic victory over RB Leipzig to keep their Europa League dreams on track, BBC reports.
Leipzig’s Jean-Kevin Augustin equalised with a header on 78 minutes but straight from the restart Odsonne Edouard struck back.
Knowing defeat could eliminate them with two games left, Kieran Tierney had put the hosts ahead early on.
Celtic sit third in Group B, level with Leipzig, but trail on head-to-head. The Scottish champions travel to Trondheim to face Rosenborg next on November 29, before finishing at home to Salzburg a fortnight later. In a frenetic fin­ish, Kevin Kampl struck the bar for the visitors and then blazed over when clean through on goal to ensure the Scottish side secured a vital victory.
The much talked about “disco lights” that were installed at Celtic Park in the summer – reportedly worth over £2million – had their European bow, but initially it was RB Leipzig that lit up Celtic Park.
The Germans threatened to spoil the party as they were right on top of Celtic for the first 10 minutes. But it was James Forrest who grabbed this game by the scruff of the neck for the Scottish champions.
The winger drove at Leipzig before flashing a ball across the penalty area for Tierney who more than matched the initiative shown by Forrest by lashing the ball home.
It sent an electrical pulse through the stadium as the home fans suddenly sensed this could be one of those heady nights where the Celtic momentum would sweep a dangerous opponent aside and end with the result that was required. Alas, life for Scottish sides in European football is rarely that simple. At times in the second half it felt like there was wave after wave of Celtic attack, but the goals would simply not flow.And then came the cruel blow as the quality of RB Leipzig sliced Celtic open as the Germans equalised. Kevin-Augustin ghosted in at the back post, unmarked, to nod home.
The reaction from the Scottish champions was fantastic.
Up the field they swept, Christie crossed for Edouard who fired home from point blank range.
