It was a successful evening for RBL, as they took the points in a deserved 2-0 win against Celtic in the Red Bull Arena, watched on by 38,126 spectators. The victory tightens Die Roten Bullen’s hold on second place in Group B.
After a balanced opening 20 minutes, RBL took control of the game and went 1-0 up in the 31st minute, when Matheus Cunha fired home from the middle of the penalty area. The lead was doubled just four minutes later when Bruma slotted the ball in, making it 2-0 at the break.
The second half was a quieter affair, despite RBL hitting the post twice after shots from Konrad Laimer and Jean-Kévin Augustin. Ultimately, the Bulls remained on top until the end and claimed three well-deserved points.
