There was no repeat of Rod Stewart's famous tears—or, if there was, it was for an entirely different reason—as Celtic lost to Barcelona thanks to a late goal.
Twelve months ago, at the same venue and against the same opposition, Celtic famously drove their famous rockstar fan to tears, as they beat Barcelona thanks to Tony Watt's finish. But a year on they suffered late heartbreak, as Cesc Fabregas headed home with ten minutes remaining to steal the points.
Prior to that, Scott Brown had been sent off in controversial circumstances following a clash with Neymar, who certainly seemed to make the most of whatever contact their was.
Barcelona, without the injured Lionel Messi, looked disjointed in attack throughout, with Neymar and Fabregas failing to link effectively. In the end it was Alexis Sanchez who would provide the winner, spotting his team-mate at the far post for Fabregas to take the headlines.
Much focus will still be on Neymar, however, as he was involved in the incident that saw Brown dismissed. Brown was guilty of a cynical foul on the Brazilian as he ran through on goal, but seemed to be sent off for running into his opponent afterwards—with Neymar writhing around in agony despite replays showing he was hardly touched.
Despite the controversy Barcelona felt they warranted the win; they enjoyed 72 per cent of possession and had 13 shots to the home side's four.
