celtic-sponsorFootball – Champions League: Celtic 3 Manchester City 3

Celtic produced their best performance of the season to pull off an unexpected result against the English league leaders.

City, who have looked imperious in not dropping a point in the Premiership, were expected to add the Scottish champions to their growing list of scalps.

The Parkhead side, stung by their 7-0 thrashing by Barcelona in the opening match in the group stage of this competition, had other ideas.

They took the lead three times through Dembele (minutes, 47 minutes) and a Sterling own goal on 20 minutes.

Fernandinho (11 minutes)Sterling (28 minutes) and Nolito (55 minutes) replied for the visitors who were unable to equal their all-time winning sequence of 11 matches.
