Celtic Park—Scotland, UK

Celtic 0-1 Barcelona

 

Barcelona avenged the demons of 2012 by squeezing past Celtic with a 1-0 scoreline.

The away side dominated the ball for long periods but lacked cutting edge, and it wasn't until Scott Brown was shown a straight red card that the tide began to turn.

Cesc Fabregas netted the only goal of the game after wonderful work from Neymar and Alexis Sanchez, and Fraser Forster made three glorious saves late on to keep the deficit at just a single goal.
