Parkhead witnessed one of its
greatest nights as goals from
Victor Wanyama and substitute
Tony Watt gave Celtic a
momentous 2-1 Champions
League victory over Barcelona. - UCL: Tuesday review
- Champions League gallery It was a Group G clash that
the Hoops were not supposed
to win but the east end of
Glasgow exploded in the 21st
minute when midfielder
Wanyama headed in from a Charlie Mulgrew corner. It was backs-to-the-wall stuff
for most of the game for the
home side as the star-studded
visitors hit the woodwork
twice and goalkeeper Fraser
Forster pulled off a number of vital saves. But in the 83rd minute 18-
year-old Watt, on for Mikael
Lustig to make his debut in
the competition, raced away
to score the second, leaving
Lionel Messi's late strike a consolation. Celtic, with seven points from
four games, two less than
leaders Barca, travel to
Benfica before hosting Spartak
Moscow in their final group
fixture and will surely fancy their chances of reaching the
knockout stages of the
competition. The crossbar denied Oscar
Cardozo a hat-trick but he did
enough to keep Benfica alive in
Group G with a 2-0 victory
over 10-man Spartak Moscow. Cardozo scored twice in the
second half and then saw his
penalty rattle the bar after
Nicolas Pareja had been sent
off for bringing him down in
the area. But while there was no
matchball for Cardozo, there
were three vital points for
Benfica to move them off the
bottom of the group, even if
their chances of sneaking into the knockout stages were
hugely complicated by Celtic's
shock defeat of Barcelona. Victor Moses came off the
bench to score an incredible
last-gasp winner as Chelsea
survived a Shakhtar Donetsk
onslaught to keep their
Champions League fate in their own hands with a 3-2 victory. The Blues were in danger of
being the first holders to
crash out of the competition
before Christmas as former
target Willian twice cancelled
out almighty howlers from goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov,
which gifted goals to Fernando
Torres and Oscar, the latter's
fourth in as many Champions
League games. But late substitute Moses
nodded home Mata's 94th
minute corner to steal a
barely-believable victory that
put Chelsea level on points
with their opponents at the top of Group E with two games
remaining. Juventus registered their first
Champions League win of the
season after a comfortable
4-0 victory over FC
Nordsjaelland. First-half strikes from Claudio
Marchisio, Arturo Vidal and
Sebastian Giovinco, plus a
second-half header from Fabio
Quagliarella were enough to
see off the Norwegian champions as the Italians finally
tasted victory after three
successive draws. Late goals from Robin van
Persie, Wayne Rooney and
Javier Hernandez saw
Manchester United come from
behind to secure a 3-1 victory
in Braga and with it their place in the last 16 of the
Champions League. A United side showing six
changes from Saturday's
Premier League win over
Arsenal struggled to get going
in the first half and the hosts
went in front shortly after the interval through a penalty
from Alan. However, as they have done
so often this term after
conceding the first goal, the
Red Devils fought back to win
thanks to substitute Van
Persie's 80th-minute effort from outside the box, a
Rooney spot-kick five minutes
later and Hernandez's
stoppage-time strike. It leaves
Group H leaders United on 12
points and guaranteed to go through as group winners. Burak Yilmaz grabbed a hat-
trick as Galatasaray kept their
hopes of reaching the
knockout stages alive with a
fine 3-1 win at CFR Cluj in
Group H. The Turkish side went into the
game without a win in the
competition so far and
knowing only a win would
realistically be enough to give
them hope of going through behind group winners
Manchester United. Bayern Munich surged to the
top of Champions League
Group F with a 6-0 hammering
of pointless Lille. Claudio Pizarro completed his
hat-trick in the 33rd minute,
by which point Bayern led 5-0
with Bastian Scweinsteiger and
Arjen Robben both striking
from free-kicks. Salomon Kalou pulled one back
from long range but substitute
Toni Kroos was quick to add
his name to the list of scorers
as Bayern moved to nine
points ahead of their second meeting with fellow pace-
setters Valencia. Valencia completed a double
over BATE Borisov with a 4-2
victory that keeps them level
on points with Bayern at the
top of Group F. Goals from Jonas Oliveira and
Roberto Soldado in four first-
half minutes, the latter from
the penalty spot, put the
Spanish side on top at the
Mestalla. Sofiane Feghouli's second-half
brace sealed victory as BATE
threatened a comeback
through star man Renan
Bressan and Dmitri Mozolevski.
