Ajax 1-0 Celtic – Champions League – 6th November 2013

Netherlands Soccer Champions League

Celtic were deservedly beaten in Amsterdam on Wednesday night after a flaccid display which leaves the Bhoys bottom of Group H.

Neil Lennon’s men failed to recapture the spark which brought them a victory against Ajax in Glasgow, instead producing a display which rarely threatened to trouble the Dutch giants.

Ajax’s goal came early on in the second-half, when Lasse Schone finished off a superb trademark passing move to put the home side 1-0 up. Indeed, Ajax should have won by more, only for some superb goalkeeping from Fraser Forster. However, Forster and his team-mates now find themselves bottom of the group with three points, leaving the Hoops with it all to do if they are to make it to the last 16.

    Yeah I can really see Celtic kicking Milan’s arse in Parkhead.

    3-0 no sweat.

    Then they’ll go to Camp Nou and snatch a 1-0.

    Finally, I’ll date 3 supermodels at once and win the lottery 4 times in a row.

    Deservedly beaten ? Deserveredly beaten ? That’s not a biased writer at all……..

    I don’t get the “sparkle” remark on the celtic home game. They played very poorly then and were lucky to get a win.
    The opportunistic 10 minutes after the 1-0 in Amsterdam last night were a big improvement for them. That’s the kind of football they have the players for.
