05 Apr 2017

47' HALF TIME!

A decent run by both teams.
Celtic would need to affect the game more in attack because Sundowns can pull the trigger if only there chances hit the back of the net.

05 Apr 2017

Tignyemb whould really release the ball quick. Set the game up for a counter attack. Fullbacks will need to come to the party as well. Would balance out the attack. 

05 Apr 2017

Pretty much picking up tempo now as Sundowns and Celtic have built a rhythm in their attacks.

This is what happened the last time Celtic played..
