📝 Celtic fight back to start Champions League campaign with a win

Celtic battled back from a goal down away to FK Sarajevo to pick up a 3-1 first leg win in their Champions League qualifier.

A sluggish start saw Neil Lennon’s men fall behind early before they levelled before the break thanks to a fine strike from Mikey Johnston.

The turnaround was completed in the second half when a slick team move ended with Odsonne Édouard calmly planting the ball home.

An important third was added in the closing stages when substitutes Lewis Morgan and Scott Sinclair combined, with the Englishman scoring with a sublime back heel.

The second leg takes place at Parkhead on Wednesday, 17 July.
