Match Commentary

90' The penalty save for Marshall acted as a catalyst for the whole team and, once level, Celtic rattled their illustrious guests. But Barca should have been a few up by then and justice was done, in the cruelest of fashions. A deflection and a goal from 'The King of Kings' settled a wonderful game of football. You always suspected he would have a say, didn't you?
90' Barcelona showed just what you can get for £40 million these days. Breathtaking attacking play from the Catalan's stars threatened to over-run Celtic early on. Credit to the Bhoys for sticking at it and, for a period in the second-half they looked like they were on course for an unlikely win.
90' And now too does the referee's whistle. A fantastic game finishes 3-1 to Barcelona and, despite a spirited, gutsy display from the hosts, you have to say they deserved it.
