  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Ari's first UEFA Champions League goal of the season has cancelled out Gary Hooper's 21st minute strike as the sides go in level at the break. With Benfica still level in Barcelona this will not be enough for Celtic to qualify. Neil Lennon's side have a massive 45 minutes ahead of them.
